I would say. Its completely up to you. You are the mother and will know if you feel comfortable doing it. 12-14hrs is a fair trip but if you wanna do it..do it. If he happens to get a temperature or something there is drs everywhere.
You shouldnt just have to go to the same dr.
Is it warm or cold over there?

I'd say wait just till he's a few weeks old because a big trip like that will be stressful for you as well as baby. The first week after birth is for quiet, getting acquainted time. When he's a few weeks old I'm sure it will be fine to take him, just nurse him lots, and keep him bundled up, newborns spend most of there time sleeping anyways. Have fun!

here by us it is kind of a tradition that the family is left on their own for the firs month- i mean with no visits and stuff like that...and i think its pretty cool thatway cause well ok you DO have your baby by you for 9 months now...but you dont have him so really you know...with feeding,changiong...crying...and your boyfriend.

i think the trip wont be a problem cause he wont be even a month old, but i think it would be a problem cause of the emotions...

good luck =)

im not a mother but i would like to say, if it is hard for some adults to sit it a car that long, think about how hard it will be for the baby.
I agree with what the other girls are saying to... the more people around the baby, holding the baby, touching, breathing on it, is just more and more germs.

i also think you should wait a little while.

btw, im excited for you!

I def. wouldn't. The only reason I took DD out at a week old was b/c it was June, and I had to. But with it being winter and a really long trip I def. wouldn't that would just increase the chance of the baby getting sick.
