    I can relate to your post so much! Babygirl is just 10 month old but we already had 2 travels abroad in my homecountry, 6 hours carride. The last was in the hottest few days this summer with a not working A/C in the car. But that wasn’t even the problem, she did awesome in the car and also on the wedding we were invited to. The evening and nightbin the hotel were nightmares though. We tried (and apparently failed) to recreate her sleeping setup and routine but still she screamed hysterically every evening for hours until she gave up and fell asleep overtired. Awful nights, too. She even does this at her grandparents who invested in the exact same sleeping inventory as we have at home. It’s like CTRL+C and CTRL+V but she still realises that something is different… oh well. We just gave up our expectations completely and just live with it. ;) Sleep is for the weak -.-

      HA! We have a baby grow saying that! Sorry to hear you have awful nights too though.

    I’m now dreading going to Salou later this month.

    I’m hoping #Baby Pink is as good a traveller as her brother. He has been going away with us since he was about a year old and never a problem.

    Thankfully Euro camp provide cots, highchairs etc

    I’ll keep the info graphic pinned ready for packing time.

      I hope you have a great time. Let us know. :)

    This is brilliant – we’re off on our first holiday with T at the end of the month and are slightly nervous.

    We know that we’re going to have to take everything including the kitchen sink, but this is a good baseline and will likely remind me of the important things and not just toys and teething gel.

      HA! Good luck. Let us know how it goes. I hope you have a lovely time :)

    Good post. I study something tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It’s going to at all times be stimulating to learn content from other writers and follow just a little something from their store. I’d desire to make use of some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link in your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.

    Great tips, thankyou. We have our first family holiday next week (six month old Boy, staying in the UK as thought going abroad was a bit of a reach for the first holiday!)

      You’re welcome buddy :) Hope you have a great holiday. Where you heading?
