    Default Bali Holiday with a 20 month old

    Hi All
    just after some advice / people's experiences going to Bali with a nearly 2 year old? We have been invited there next year and our Dd will be 20months.
    Do you use a car seat in the hire cars ( with drivers)? Just looking to hear people's experiences as I'm a little nervous about it!!
    thanks
    Rach

    One of my friends just went over for 2 months with a just one year old. She had to be careful watching him cause he started walking over there and he would pick up everything and try to eat it! As for car trips they just held him. It's pretty cruisy, they don't go very fast and it's not like driving around Aus. I've been twice and never worn a seat belt. Even fit 8 of us in a taxi ha ha

    Hi Rach,

    We went to Bali last year though my daughter is a bit older than two my experience was that its all pretty relaxed over there. We went on tours in maxi taxi type bus and didn't where seatbelts. They don't drive very fast ( is say due to the very crowded traffic). I think you'll have a great time .... But there is NO way you'd get me on a scooter over there !!

    Hi Rach,
    We've been to Bali with both of our kids since they were 1. We never worried about car seats but we used to find unwanted strollers here in Aus and take them over there for using (that way we could leave them with someone that has a baby or young child and not have to bring it back!)
    We also took antibacterial hand gel and wipes because they like to explore (for us we controlled the where to places we could watch more carefully like along beach, around hotel, restaurants etc, rather than walking around streets which we said stroller time so you don't get tired).
    Have fun!

    I'm going to Bali in 3wks - I'll have a 6mth and 24mth old...on my own

    I've been to Bali 12 times though and can assure you that traveling around is very cruisy. In saying that, if you're concerned, yes you can hire drivers with a van and carseat installed. I'm actually doing that this trip for my airport transfers, as I'll have 2 kids on my own.

    I usually ride a scooter over there, so I'll really miss that freedom this trip! But no way re my boy going on one of those

    We went with a 2y old and an 8m old. It was fine. No car sests but they r driving so slow. Second the wipes. The balinese love kids . When we went to restaurants the staff would take the 8m old and mind him until we were finished. Hoping to go again next year.

    We took our daughter to bali when she was 20 months, it was great. She sat in our lap in taxis and we hired a pram from bali baby hire. Check out their website they have heaps of stuff to hire and to buy and they deliver it to your hotel. From memory, they have prams, food, nappies, high chairs, sterilisers etc.

    The hotel provided a cot with a mosquito net.

    Make sure you use lots of mosquito repellant and sun cream.

    The Balinese love children, we had a great time.

    What are your specific concerns?
