My wife is also expecting and we came in Japan two weeks ago on my business trip, and will be staying for two to three months. Is it worth to have pram for baby while traveling within the cities by train or something?
So your wife is scheduled to give birth while you are traveling on business in Japan?
Well, if she gives birth, you won't have a choice; you can't leave the baby alone. But you shouldn't be touring and traveling much with a newborn. The baby and your wife should be top priority.
I'd say yes use a pram. Our son was born in Tokyo and we never owned a car in the time we lived there. Most of the train stations have elevators as well.
Id suggest a thing that holds baby onto your wifes chest, or yours, as thats where babys like to be in the early days next to the heartbeat theyve been close to for 9 months so they do settle in that position quite easily.
but otherwise yes id think a pram would be a good idea or one of those pushchairs that are made well though to adapt from pram to pushchair as they tend to be made a little smaller than some specifically as prams, as there are usually so many people around. but yes everywhere i went there were elevators as i was recovering from an ankle injury so particularly wanted to use elevators and found them in convenient locations everywhere i went.
