    Hmm I'm starting to think that maybe I should just plan a small local holiday.

    We've traveled extensively around the world over the last 10 years so it's not like a 'must do' before kids. Also I am 34 so don't want to put TTC off any longer.

    What's it like travelling with a younger Bub? Say 10mths or older? I've always wanted to visit Hawaii which I always thought was a great destination with kids. I could put off Asia to do at a later time when bubs is older.
    Travel when Bub is 6mths or under. ESP if they are exclusively bf then you don't have to worry about food/water. We travelled to India and the UAE with a 5mth old and it was ridiculously easy. All Bub needed was me and nappies. No need to pack food, bottles, formula etc.

    That's really interesting! I never thought to travel with bubs so young. Did you just wear your bubs around or did you take a pram?

    I'm due in November and going to do a practice run (hamilton island) with bubs before trying any overseas trips.

    A girl at work went South America with her LO when bubs was 4/5 months old and said it was easy!
    Bubs didn't even cry in the plane .... 1.5 years later he was a terror running up and down the aisle and screaming lol (I think it all depends on the kid to be honest - you just won't know how they'll react until they're in the situation)

    Just a carrier. It was very very easy.

    Travelling with a bub under 6 months is so much easier than an older child. We went to HK with my son at 8 weeks and he basically just slept in my arms and fed the whole flight which is what we would have been doing at home anyway.
    Went to Hawaii with him a year later and was much harder work. Also when they are young they will generally sleep anywhere so you can take them out to a restaurant in the pram and eat while they are sleeping.
    If you still want to travel while pregnant then check out countries that have reciprocal medical agreements with Australian so basically you and bub are covered by Medicare

    This.

    Currently holidaying in France with my 3mo and it is heaven.
    Didn't hear her voice for the all 36 hrs trip. She slept more than at home.
    She's always ready to go. We just change her nappy, pop her in the carrier and we're off!!

    However we do have a 2yo and that's like a tropical rain on my parade 😋

    We went to the UK with bub when she was 7 months old & it was very easy. She loved being in the carrier so it made going out & sight seeing a dream! She didn't like sleeping in the bassinet on the plane, but happily slept on my lap. I could even position here asleep & eat my dinner! We just took her to Sydney at 18 months & it was that little bit harder, particularly with naps - she no longer just sleeps anywhere!
