I would cancel. If your DH is supportive of that option it would be a no-brainer. A hard decision, still but a good one.

I would not leave my 4 month old for 5 days- but that’s just me. I think you should forget about what happened at your wedding, because it really has no bearing on this situation. I think you have a good “excuse” not to go.

Let him go, you stay home with the newborn, you save money in the process and you get out of the event.  Problem solved all the way around.

ChicagoSLK:  dont think you save that much doing that, all inclusives are usually per couple.

 

I would cancel the trip.

If you are planning on breastfeeding, do not leave your 4 month old for 5 days.  Pumping that much is no easy task and not guaranteed.  You would have to pump like 150oz before you leave.  That is a LOT (that would have been like a huge portion of my freezer stash- which has come in very handy now that my baby is 9mo old).  The baby either has to come, or I would cancel.

If it was me, I’d probably cancel because I’d rather spend my $2500 when I could really enjoy it.

DomesticDiva:  Always great to have a supportive partner! Best of luck. No matter what you decide, the decision was hard and you’re smart to try and be thoughtful about it.

DomesticDiva:  I would cancel. First of all, if they dont allow you to bring your baby – there’s no way I’d leave a 4 month old with babysitters for that long. Second, I just wouldnt want to bring my baby to Mexico – a place where you cant even drink the water without getting sick. What if baby did get sick? What is the healthcare like? Sorry – it just sounds too risky to me!

Just say no. Seems simple to me.

I cancel. I wouldn’t take a 4 month old to Mexico who knows what kind of sickness they can catch there especially with mosquittos.

DomesticDiva:  especially if this is your first child and you don’t know how you’ll handle post partem /becoming a new mom, I personally would not plan a trip to Mexico knowing I have a 4mo old baby who may or may not be able to come.  Thats just me though 🙂

DomesticDiva:  Stay at home. Sounds like you don’t really want to go along with the fact that they’re already married.
