A member of DH family has died, overseas.
In a week we embark on a mamoth trip to Europe for the funeral...
We have a 6 hour drive to the nearest international airport, luckily we spend a couple of days there before we fly out to finalise DSs Australian passport.
Then we catch 3 planes and a ship to get to our destination.... Sydney - China, China - Holland, Holland - Finland, then a boat to Estonia... (note to self: next time marry within the southern hemisphere...) then we do it all in reverse 12 days later...
With a VERY active 22 month old DS... HELP! I need all the advice you have...
We have bought an umbrella stroller for the airports (will also be taking a harness and ergo carrier). We are now tossing up between taking that or his car seat for the plane... DH feels taking both will be too much for us to lug around, particularly in Finland where we will have to get from the airport to the ferry terminal and onto a ferry with all our luggage.
What are your thoughts/experiences here?
Also I am going to buy DS a sippy cup (he uses a normal cup at home) any suggestions on which is the most leak proof?
ANY advice will be super welcome
