Its no secret that Anth and I love to travel! In our 7 years together we have traveled the world and enjoyed various types of holidays from relaxing on the beach in Miami to vespa food tours in the bustling and chaotic nightlife of Ho Chi Minh city streets so it came as quite a reality check when it came to our first trip with a baby. Even though we had prepared ourselves that we wouldn’t be doing a lot, the actual reality of this can be a disappointing letdown. I totally get why so many families holiday with their parents (grandparents) in tow so that they can still have time to do things they would like to do and know that their children are being safely looked after.
Sienna is still so small and holidaying with her as she gets older will get easier when we’re not so governed by nap times, feeding etc. We are lucky in that she travels well via all types of transport and she loves walking around and seeing new things in the carrier. I believe if you choose your holiday place wisely and you know what your baby prefers you can still have a rewarding and even somewhat relaxing holiday with a baby as long as you’re willing to compromise and adapt constantly along the way. It will always take the first trip to really know how your baby will cope, how you will cope and will give you a sense of what type of holidays would suit better in the future
