I can’t believe how many milestones my baby has hit this month, shes been such a giggly happy baby, I can’t believe shes half a year old and so intelligent, I hope these next 6 months go just a little slower😩

Travelling With A 6 Month Old

So as some of you may know, we’re currently on the gorgeous island of Menorca! I was so damn nervous about taking Ella Rose on the plane.. but it really wasn’t all that bad, she slept for half and played for the other, and we chose somewhere not too far (2h30m) for her first flight!

I also usually get super bad anxiety on planes, and was convinced having Ella with me would make it so much worse, but this wasn’t the case at all. She made it almost non existant, whilst in the air that was!

I have a small essentials list for those of you going away with a baby at a similar age! And my main thing is pack light. You don’t need every toy in the toy box, 40 nappies and the kitchen sink.
The only things I will be taking next time for the flight are:

• Nappies&Wipes

• 2/3 NEW toys

• Their blanky/snuggy/dummy, whatever settles them to sleep

• Snacks, lots of them, eg. Kiddylicious wafers, Ellas Kitchen puffs, etc

• Drinks
That was everything I used, and it would’ve been a nightmare rooting through the bag if I’d have taken anything else, so I’m so glad I didn’t. I’m usually a ‘just in case’ kind of person. I’m not saying my suitcase isn’t fit to burst.. but thats another story..

My advice to anyone thinking of going away, be it home or away – go for it. What’s the worst that could happen?
We’ll catch up with you again on thursday, as my little monkey turns 6 months old whilst we’re here. HALF A YEAR, already? What?😩
