    Just wanted to say that if you end up with no other option to having bub in the ergo whilst traveling in a car the safest way to do so is to clip yourself into the seatbelt and then put the ergo on with bub (in other words going from seat outwards it would be seat-you-seatbelt-bub-ergo/carrier)

    This ensures that in the unfortunate occurance that an accident happens your body weight won't squish bub against the seatbelt.

    Hope you can work out all the details for your trip

    Default taking a 3 month old to Europe

    We flew to UK with DD when she was 6 months old, also on Emirates. We took the baby backpack but no stroller. On both our stopovers (Singapore & Dubai) there were free strollers available for use in the airports. While in the UK we bought a good quality umbrella stroller and brought it home free of charge as you're allowed a stroller without being counted as part of your luggage allowance.

    We got a bassinet seat on all sectors & the flight attendants looked after us really well. The only negative was I was told when booking that they provided cartons of formula and baby food jars, so I only took 50% of the amount I needed on the way over. They actually only had stage 1 formula & many of the jars had sugar or fruit juice in (which I wasn't giving DD at that stage). On the return journey we brought all our own supplies for bub.

    Happy planning, hope you have a brilliant trip

    ETA: strollers were cheap as chips in the UK with the dollar being so strong!

    i would also suggest getting there early we had a bassinet booked, but told to get there early just incase.
    we travelled to london when ds was 3mths at the airport we went to the info counter to get a taxi and asked for one with a baby seat- it came with a actual seat that coverted to a toddler seat- i held bub on my lap
    pram we took as on board luggage they take it from you when to board, you get it at the gate- they were pretty rough with it all scratched
    ive found flight staff lovely each tim.
    have a great holiday!

    Default taking a 3 month old to Europe

    I flew Qantas Perth to Sydney with my 10 month old 3 weeks ago. I booked our tickets 4 months in advance and requested a bassinet. It was stressed that the bassi was not guaranteed. We arrived at check in an hour early and were granted the bassinet. However, prior to boarding one of the cabin staff was walking through the crowd at the departure gate asking for all those flying with babies to come to the front so that they could board first and be settled. There were 11 babies on the flight! Mine was certainly not the youngest baby on the flight and the other bassi was given to a child who turned 1 two weeks before. They also had booked tickets months previously.

    Unfortunately, the model of the plane has been changed since we made our booking for our return flight next week, and it does not have bassinets.

    The Qantas infant meal consisted of a small child's juice, an apple and a banana, a jar of Heinz baby food, 2 rusks and an entire 125g bag of farex.

    We are flying to the uk next month with our DS who will be 6 months. We are also flying Emirates and they have guaranteed us a bassinet! We have email confirmation!
    We will, just to be sure, go to the airport early to check in.
    I agree with the others, buy a cheap collapsable buggy instead of multiple hiring. Saves the hassle!!

    unless you are away for ages, or bub is really big you should be fine just with hugabub. the ergo is awesome when babies are older but doesn't work so well with young babies.

    Default taking a 3 month old to Europe

    Hi strawberry swing or anyone that has traveled to Ireland/uk?
    Did you have to get any xtra vaccine for your 3 mth old?
    I'm traveling back to Ireland to see family with my 8 week old who will be 13 weeks old when we travel.
    I rang my GP & was told I'd have to make an app just to see if dd needed an other vaccines (apart from her 6-8 week one) Then I have to pay again to get vaccine done which I don't mind anyway if its needed.
    Just be nice to know if anyone has any experience on this would be appreciated as will need to get this organised ASAP.
    Thanks so much
