Brisbane was an amazing city to visit and I feel like we just scratched the surface during our four-day visit. As we had a child under one and no car, we chose to focus on activities around the centre of town. We found that, with an apartment strategically located in the Brisbane CBD, near the river, we could easily walk to all of the places and activities that we wanted to. Perhaps on our next visit we will venture into the suburbs.
Most parents know all too well the feeling of waiting for their child to achieve the major milestones. The anxiety of wondering if your child will ever roll, sit up, talk, walk, complete and algebraic equation etc., as other babies around him all seem to be doing it. The slight tinge of jealousy that accompanies watching videos of other people’s kids on Facebook doing things that your kid can’t.
When travelling with a baby to major cities, I highly recommend looking for serviced apartments with a few key amenities. Kitchenette (or even better, full kitchen), laundry (in room is ideal) and separate bedroom rate highly on my list of things to look for when booking.
Are you planning on flying with a baby? Great! Plane travel can lead to an unforgettable holiday, but it can also be fraught with danger when travelling with a little one. Images of a baby screaming his head off from take-off to landing spring to mind.
My little girl, Hannah, will soon be eleven months old.
The last time I wrote specifically about her development was in 8 Months Old and Taking On The World. Back then I was blown away by the explosion in development, seemingly overnight sometimes. I marvelled at her new-found ability to move with purpose.
