How old is your baby ?

The main problem will be c the change in air pressure on the child's ears.

Assuming you are going in summer and to the Aguile du Midi that is.

If you are it will be cold so wrap up well.

The Mer de Glace is a train to 1800m. There is no significant pressure or temperature change.

However, I would not take a puch chair on the glacier or carry the child. If you fall the ice is like rock.

Hi thanks for your responses.. we just got back from Geneva last night and had a lovely day trip to Chamonix on Saturday.. we took the train/tram up to see the Glacier but only from where the train stops (had a look, took photos etc then got back on and came down) Ice cave was closed due to weather but with my 11 month old i'm actually pleased as just venturing off the train was cold enough! :o) tks again..
