My DS is 15months and we are going to take him to Spain for 10 nights next month.
Its the first time out of the country and although he is probably the most mild mannered baby iv ever met im worried about lots of things.
We are going to our own place so we dont have to worry about hotels etc but i do need to buy a cot (getting a proper one to leave there once we arrive) and a highchair/booster seat, ther is an Ikea about 45mins away from our place so going there for those unless someone knows if Carrefour sells them??
Im going to lisy my main conserns,any advice would be appreiciated greatly.
1- Early flight, we have to be at the airport at 5am,my boy likes his sleep(neva wakes before 7.30am) - do I wait untill the last minute before i put him in the car in his pjs and take clothes with me and give breakfast at the airport and dress him or wake him, feed him and get him dressed as if its the normal time then go??
2 - suitcase, it says he is allowed 10kgs,so should i just get a small hand luggage type case for his things?
3 - buggy at the airport what happens with it?? can i keep it until we board?
4- Any tips for the flight would be very helpfull,he has just stopped breastfeeding so cant offer that during takeoff/landing.
5- once there is any type of bottled water safe to give him??
6- tips for the beach/sun welcome
7-food, he does eat everything but im not sure how to get around ordering stuff for him or taking a sandwich just incase.
8- can i tske medicines sealed in my suitcase, ie calpol,diorolyte?
Sorry iv not been nurotic for some months but im feeling it taking over, i hate new things.
Im sure i will come back reporting all went well as he is never fussed by anything,its just his silly Mummy!
Thanks for letting me waffle if nothing else x
