Traveling To Higher Altitude Anyone Done This With Baby

DB - February 19

We have a long weekend planned to Aspen Colorado when dd is 7 weeks old. The nurse at the ped. office said she thought dd would be fine to fly and she thinks she will tolerate the higher alt_tude just fine, but some babies and children don't tolerate it. I'm just wondering if anyone else has traveled to higher alt_tude and if their baby did ok with the change. I'm starting to second guess if we should even go?!?!?

I have seen newborns sleep through entire plane rides, so I hope you have one of those lol. The youngest I've taken one on a plane was 7 months. I b___stfeed, so I nursed her on take-offs and landings and she never cried or anything! If your LO would develop a cold or congestion I would cancel the whole thing, though. I've flown with what seemed like a mild cold and I thought my head was going to explode! Also, when we went to CO. my son was 15 months and he got nosebleeds when we would go up into the mtns. My brother's dd was 2 months when they made their first trip to PA. (where I am) from CO. (where he lives)... she was fine, but when they went back home she also got a nosebleed from the alt_tude. Nothing dangerous, just a nuisancy little thing to be prepared for.

we drove through the mountains when ds was about 7 weeks old, and it bothered his ears a bit, but we would just pop his num back in his mouth and he's be fine. than he flew at 3 months and slept most the way, only waking to eat, so his ears didnt bother him than either
