Biometrics - bring baby

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have an 8 month old and do not have anyone that can watch him on the day of my biometrics appointment. Hubby is working and cannot get time off either. Has anybody brought their baby to the biometrics office before? This would specifically be for the Cleveland office.

I typically use a baby carrier so he would be strapped on my chest. What is involved with biometrics besides fingerprinting? Just wonder if a picture is taken too.

Photos and fingerprints. You will have to take the baby to the side whilst pictures are taken. But I don't see why they cant accommodate you. Good luck it takes fifteen

Minutes :))

I doubt it would be an issue. I'd bring a stroller or car seat as well, though, to put the baby in while the picture is taken. :)

You can if you want/need to. I know my daughter was nursing constantly at that age. Either bring someone with you to watch her or bring her in a car seat or stroller so your hands will be free for the actual fingerprinting. If you don't want to bring her you don't need to.

Don't worry about it, lots of people in the waiting room had kids so you can pace around while waiting if needed, and at the actual interview they've seen it all. Our daughter was 14 months at the time and was all over the place. Hopefully yours will end up sleeping. :)
