Traveling with Newborn

Young parents don't hesitate to take their little ones during the trips. Any professional recommendations, is it right or not?

We've continued our travels with kids. Our first was 5 months when we went from Perth to Malaysia, 6 mths from Perth to Melb, 8 mths Perth to Cairns and 11 mths Perth to Hong KOng.... i think it was once he started to walk and move and longer flights started to become more difficult trying to keep them in a seat.

The little Miss went on her first flight at 4 weeks to Melbourne (from perth) and at 6 weeks she went to Bali, again at 4 mths with a trip to Adelaide in the middle there and Thailand around the 7 mth mark.

If youre breast feeding it is even easier as you dont have to worry about sterilising bottles or carrying formula or food.... once theyre starting solids the soft baby puree packaging these days is a god send. If using formula just boil bottled water and take 2 bottles so you can always have 1 on the go ready to be used. Nappies are cheaper in Asia than Australia so dont worry too much about packing many...just buy some when you get there. And if theyre less than 10kg then just put them in a backpack and youre away with 2 hands...easy as!
