My daughter was also 4 months old when we got her a passport. We would have got it sooner, but it took that long for us to get her birth certificate, which we needed to apply for her passport. The hardest part about getting a passport for a 1 week old is that you need to get a picture of them head on with eyes open - they don't do that too much at that age! :)

Once the baby is born you can apply as soon as you have the official birth certificate. In my state that takes about 6 weeks, your state may be different.

Even at 4 mo. it can be hard, we took her down to one of the better photo shops (portraits) in the PI and the guy had us lay her down on a blanket took 3-4 photos and changed the background. One blue and one white, for both her passports.

Our son was 3 months when he got his passport...the guy at the post office just put a white blanket behind his head in car seat and snap the picture, as a matter of a fact he eye are closed in his passport picture. Hubby and I laugh because he looks so different now than in that picture.

My son was 10 days old when we applied for his passport. The biggest challenge about his picture was keeping such a newborn child awake enough for the photo for his eyes to be open. XD The photographer laid him down on a white pillow.

Blessed with a healthy baby boy, 08/19/2011! We get to keep our family together! Thank you! smile.png
