“Dear PoPville,

Does anyone have any tips for commuting on the metro with an infant? My husband and I are coming to the end of our parental leave periods, and our little one (7 months old) will be starting day care in the city near work soon. We can get a parking spot that is several blocks away from the daycare, but since we live right by a metro station, we are wondering if commuting on the metro with an infant is doable, since it is cheaper and we won’t have to deal with the longer walk from the parking spot. What is the latest time in the morning we could leave and not have to deal with major crowds? How early do we need to leave in the afternoon to avoid crowds?

Would love to know what other parents do!”
