Vacation with baby
I would like to visit my relatives in South Europe, but I'm afraid that would be a long trip for my daughter (2 years old). Is anyone have ever gone on such a long trip with young child?
My husband and I used to travel a lot, before she was born, but now it's rather difficult. You know, all the stuff you need to bring with - nappies, clothes, toys etc.
If you have any experience in those please share it with me.
We have travelled quite a bit with my son. The longest trip we did with him was a 10 hour flight to Malaysia at one year and most recently a family holiday to Spain (when he was 22 months).
It is certainly do-able but I would say that my best advice is to be very well-organised and plan ahead. It is also possible to pack relatively lightly if you research what nappies etc are available at your destination.
One tip I have is to breastfed your daughter/ give her a drink on the take off and landing as this will help to equalise the pressure in her ears.
I pack a goodie bag full of small, inexpensive new toys for my toddler for long journeys. Healthy snacks are also handy!
Travelling with children can be manageable and even fun!
I hope your trip goes well.
Thank you for advices ljmarsden!
I'll use all of them! I hope my trip goes well, too.
I have one question: Has your son any kind of reaction, when you traveled by plane? I must say that I'm a little beat afraid of flying.
I've already found shops for things I'll need there (nappies and that kind of stuff).
Bouncy Castle Wicklow seems like a good choice.
Thanks for share it with us.
