Booking for a baby who wasn't arrived yet!

Hi, I previously asked about travelling to DLRP with a teeny weeny baby and you were all really helpful. Well the time has come for me to book and I'm just wondering how I do it?

I've managed to find a brilliant price for a stay in SL in October on the French site so obviously will need to book online. But this gives me a bit of a quandary, do I :

1) Book for the four of us, ignoring the baby and add the baby onto the booking at a later date?

or;

2) Book the baby in, giving the DOB as today's date (for example)?

or;

3) Give up the idea of booking online

I would just book the baby in, using a current date as their date of birth.

Will I need to alter the booking at a later date? Or just leave it?

I can't think of any reason for altering the booking the later - your baby will still be a baby .

We had the same situation last year, we booked for just the 5 of us and then once baby was born just rung up and added her on. They then just sent us an updated conformation with belles name on and the cot request. Hope this helps you. She was 10 weeks old when we travelled and everything was just fine if you need any info on travelling with a baby I'll be pleased to help.

I booked before my son arrived last year-you give your due date as date of birth then alter later at no extra cost have fun. My son was 9 weeks when we went.

Unfortunately you can't do that for an online booking

That's great thanks Abbi, I might come back and pick your brains at a later date. Incidentally, are all your children named after Disney characters?

The baby is due on the 2nd of August

We're hoping to go for three nights/four days. I usually go for longer, but as I'm going with a friend and her 9 year old I daren't risk going for any longer incase the baby isn't sleeping through by then! I'm thinking if, after it's born it's like DD (so is a dream baby!!) I might upgrade and stay for a couple of extra nights but we'll see how it goes!!
