    Do it mama! Will be something to look forward to, to break up the routine a bit (i know i got caught up in a bit of a groundhog day when my bubbas were a few months old)

    We have done several overseas trips with our little one at the ages of 4 months, 7 months and most recently 19 months.

    I think if you go with realistic expectations, it can be extremely enjoyable and you'll have some awesome memories. Expect for some things to not go as planned (eg baby may not nap as he normally would, or may need to co-sleep if they don't take to the portacot) - and you won't be faced with any unpleasant surprises.

    We have been really lucky that our little boy just fell into routine each trip - but we went with the expectation that he wouldn't (or at least would take a while to adjust), but we were pleasantly surprised.

    But just be flexible, go with bub's flow and enjoy the time away with your little family!!

    We first traveled interstate when ds1 was 4 months to see family and it was fine he adjusted no problems at all I found that age easier then when we traveled overseas with him at 23 months and trying to find food for a fussy Eater to eat and getting sick didn't help.
    Traveling with kids can be stressful but like pp have said if you go with no expectations and realize that you may have to adapt plans around Bub sometimes you will be fine and have some wonderful family memories
