Dear Queenie,

  There has been a death in my husband’s family and we want to go to the funeral service, but we have a 6-month-old baby and everyone we might ask to look after him will be at the service.

  Queenie, would it be OK to take the baby with us to the service?—Funeral Etty Ket

 

Dear Etty Ket,

  I suggest you contact the place where the service is being held and ask them that question.

  In my opinion, the other people at the service might even like to see your baby, as proof that life goes on. But if you do take him, be sure to take him out immediately if he starts to fuss or make any noise that would disrupt the service.
