We are ambitiously planning a road trip when LO is like 10 days old to go stay with my parents in their bigger house where family can come visit/help. We're hoping to stay for the entire length of DH's paternity leave (4 weeks) so we have help and can see our family. We don't have a spare bedroom so will be home alone without any support if we stay in town. My mom is worried LO will need weekly check-ups so our plan is going to be defunct by more than just the logistics of packing up and getting there. How often did you need to bring LO back to the doc at first? I thought maybe just a 2 week visit and then a 6 week one, but I really have no idea.
