Day 10: Pre-Baby Vacations (aka Babymoon)

What is a “Babymoon?”

There are a couple of meanings.  This term first became popular in the mid-1990’s, and has brought on a new level of vacations.

One meaning includes both parents taking time off before the baby is born, to have one last “hurrah” of couple only time, or if you already have other children, have some  “family” time before the baby is born.

Another version is the couple taking a vacation, or a little time off, after the baby is born, to allow for the family to bond.  It’s nice for the dad to have some extra time off as well.  Many agree that the transition to fatherhood is easier when the man can also spend some immediate time with the baby, away from work.
