    We went to Tassie for two weeks when DS was 4mo with no problems. I could never have done it with DD - she had reflux and projectile vomiting - she hated the at and screamed endlessly.


    For for the most, most babies travel well. Some babies do not travel well at all, so take out travel insurance JIC.

    We went to QLD with my mum and dad, sister, BIL, brother and his partner when DD was 4 months old. It was great! Heaps better than I expected actually. We rented a house so it was just like being at home really. The best thing was that the house had a pool, we took our baby monitor so when DD was sleeping during the day I could go relax next to the pool and not have to worry about her. Without the pool I might have been a bit bored and felt a bit trapped in the house. We didn't really leave her with mum and dad at all but still had a really nice time.
    We liked it so much we are all going back this year!

    Default Holidaying with a baby - was it what you expected?

    No we're planning on taking the baby with us! Ha ha. We want a family holiday, i just wasn't sure if it was realistic or not at that age. Part of the motivation for picking Port Macquarie as the destination was that all going smoothly, mum and dad could possibly watch baby for a few hours for us to go out and have dinner one night.

    We went on several trips with dd1 as an infant. 3 weeks driving holiday to Victoria from bris when she was only a few weeks old, flights to Victoria again as a 4mth old. Then to India and Dubai as a 5-6mth old.

    The only issue we had was convincing people we could still join them for dinner, coffee, functions etc with bub. Everyone (in Victoria) presumed we would be hermits.

    Dd was just shy of 10mths when we went down south (wa) for our annual getaway. She travelled fine, had a blast at the beach and spending time with nana & grandad (we go away with my IL's and rent a house for the week)

    We are all booked for next year and bub #2 will be 10wks old if s/he arrives on time. I think at that age they can be so portable so we are happy to head away. For me, a holiday is just a change of scenery - still do all the cooking, cleaning, washing & running around after dd

    Glad I'm not the only one who thought this was an odd post.

    Absolutely!! We were still on our family holiday in Bali when DH said, "next holiday we're going to Vegas & the kids aren't invited!". I think I loved him a little bit more after that.......
