    Yes we took our 13mo on our honeymoon. For that reason we purposely kept it close by (3 hr drive to Margaret River region). Was brilliant. DH and I lived overseas and had done a LOT of international travel before DD was born so we didn't feel we were missing out on anything.

    Depends on the age of the kids and whether I'd be comfortable leaving them with someone else for the length of the honeymoon.

    If it was right now, with my two - I'd take them. They're 10 and under and there is no one who would be able to look after them for longer than one night.

    If I had parents or siblings who loved having the kids (and the kids loved staying with them) then I'd happily go on a child free honeymoon.

    It all depends on the individual family circumstances.

    Moot point for me as we got married 4 years prior to DD but if we were to get married now absolutely we'd take her. I maybe don't put as much stock in things like honeymoons (or weddings for that matter I had 4 guests at mine lol) but to me it is just a holiday and for the next 15 years or til she gets sick of us 😜 I imagine they'll all be 'family' holidays. We've had plenty of couple holidays before we had DD and will have plenty more in the future too when she's sick of us so for me it wouldn't be an issue 😀

    We didn't bring ours... only went for 3 days though so it wouldn't have been worth it.

    Im undecided (obviously) DD will be 3 at the time and if I wanted I could probably have someone watch her. The reason im undecided is my partner and I enjoy doing the scenary activities and I cant help but think thatd be very boring for a 3yo. My other thought was doing gold coast with the zoos and theme parks but then im torn cause I feel I wont be able to enjoy it as much as we will be limited with activities. I was thinking of inviting my sister along to help babysit and give us a chance to take advantage of everything also.
    Maybe im overthinking it 😂

    I wouldn't. .. dp and I went to The Goldcoast in july this year for 4 nights ... our little guy was 21 months old and he stayed with my sister in law ... I missed him like crazy and had to face time him a few times a day ... but he had a ball and so did we

    The best part of being away was how excited he got when we got home

    I wouldn't. I'm not married but I feel like a honeymoon should be about the two of you as a couple, not as parents. If I had very young children that I wasn't comfortable leaving I would postpone my honeymoon until they were older

    I am half tempted to take my kids with us on our honey moon- I would love to take them to the Gold Coast and do all the theme parks.

    Df- not such a lover of theme parks and I know he likes having time for just the two of us.

    So, while I wouldn't mind, I would have to say no.
