Curious if anyone has any advice or input. I recently had a baby so I had to put my pft in hold. I want to continue but now I’m concerned about the time away at the academy and then the demand of the first few years. Has anyone else been in this situation? We have discussed having my husband move to dc while at the academy so that they can be close and I can see the baby as much as possible.

Moving your family there is highly advised against. You'll only have weekends free, and even then sometimes you'll have training on the weekend or need to study for tests. The academy needs to be your focus while you're there.

If you're not close to the age cut-off you may want to wait a little while before moving forward with this. If you are near it then what you can do is schedule set weekends for your family to stay nearby (tons of hotels). I saw many do that while I was there. It's rough not seeing them all the time, but this career has sacrifices like this.
