And it might get complicated to purchase a ticket for just the baby later, if you were to book everyone else when those dates do open up in a couple of months.
We had this "problem" for my daughter's 1st trip. She was 4 months old when we traveled, but we booked the airfare before she was born. Anyway, what we did was book an extra seat and then after she was born we added her as a lap child. We used the extra seat for her car seat. This was on JetBlue and we called and asked if this was possible before booking.

Sign up for yapta and track your flights, they email you when the price drops or send a push notification to your phone/iPad if you have the app. This site has saved me and my family a lot of money, and took the headache out of checking multiple times a day.

Yup, on our last trip to Orlando, if I would have left on a Wednesday, come back on a Tuesday our flights would have been cut in half. I wish I had done that.

Jet Blue released their fares today through 1/6/14. I got PVD to MCO for 12/2-12/9 for $210 roundtrip. OP, that is a lot better than what you were finding with SouthWest.

I don't know HOW to save, except to just keep shopping around. I just booked our flights today for our November trip because I knew I would never find anything cheaper than what we got.

We are flying Spirit for $167 per person round trip! It is 2 adults and 1 child traveling so the total came to $503!! Both flights coming and going are non-stop. I was floored.. but we are traveling on a Wednesday and coming home on a Tuesday so that may have a lot to do with it. I am so used to flying on weekend days so I haven't flown this cheap in years!
Next trip- November 6-14th 2015 Port Orleans French Quarter!!

You could sign up for "travel alerts" from companies like Kayak or Travelocity. Then you get daily alerts and can track trends. Also tickets are cheaper at the beginning of the week (Mon or Tue) rather than at the end of the week. When I first looked up our flights from SEA to MCO (about as far away as possible within the continental US! lol) tickets were quoted at $371 RT each! I just bought our tickets for $262 RT with info from Kayak, but I booked direct on Frontier. The big trick is to just keep checking back, wherever you are looking. Good luck!
Remember that happiness doesnt depend on what you have or who you are..... It depends solely on what you think.
