Wake etiquette

Dd is 11 weeks old, would you bring her to a wake?
We brought her to a shiva last week -Dh thought it was ok bc it was a house vs a funeral home. I'm not sure what is appropriate...

I think it is perfectly OK. If the priest comes in to say prayers and DD is fussy then you can just step outside for a few minutes.

Wake etiquette

Honestly, there are always small children at wakes (At least the ones that I've been too.) There are separate rooms for you to be with them if they're fussy, and it's good to get to see a little light in the darkness, you know what I mean? Seeing the baby should bring a little bit of cheer. I would bring her, if it were me.

Re: Wake etiquette

I think it's fine. At that age they're like luggage Chat Icon they sit in their carrier, and either sleep or do their baby thing. I agree with the PP who said if she starts to fuss, just bring her outside.
