    If your baby don't have any ailment that might be aggravated by heat, go. You need not bring your pedia along anyway.

    moomba, stellaris casino, baby beach,
    personally, i wouldn't take a 3 month old on an airplane simply for the dicsomfort of holding it for 5 hours and the nightmarish possibility that it will cry non-stop. also, i'd be reluctant to expose a newborn to the recycled air in the cabin. but that's just me. also, aruba may be a little too hot for a newborn - especially out on the beach where the sun is reflected off the sand. i can't imagine how much you'd be able to enjoy yourself while caring for the baby. but all the power to you if you manage to pull it off!

    Long Time Aruba Vacationer

    My wife and I have travelled to Aruba every year since 1999, sometime twice a year. We have a 3 year daughter who has been there 3 times, with the 1st time when she was 8 months old. No issues, just use common sense, keep the little ones out of the direct sun. We are scheduled to go in August 2009, with a future addition to our family, who will be almost 3 months old and our 3 yr old. We always bring the grand parents who are more than happy to pitch in and help.

    Go for it.

    Im wondering other parents thoughts on travelling with a 3 months old to Aruba. Ill be breast feeding, if that makes a difference.

    We went to Aruba November 2004 and my grandson was 4 months old at the time and he did fine. Of course, we didn't keep him out in the heat much, and when we did have him outside we kept a hat on him and kept him shaded.
