1st time travelling with a baby

Just got a call from Wan that he needs to go to Langkawi  for a meeting (and of course we have to tag along la). The 1st thing came to my  mind was "Hariz macam mana nanti?". This will be Hariz 1st trip besides from Penang - Alor Setar back and forth. 

Last time we went to Langkawi was 2008  I think.


We book flight tickets via FireFlyz (because Airasia was fully booked!). This will be Hariz's 1st flying experience jugak. I don't know what to expect here. Will he be okay flying? Will he whimper and throw tantrum? Will he be comfortable? How to pack his food and stuff? His luggage must be bigger than mine that's for sure.

Okay, put aside Hariz's matter for awhile. Mummy nak shopping!!! Wuhuuu!! Remember this entry? Now I nak beli semua!!! hehehehee . 

oh.. now i remember la.. I naik flight. Mana mungkin mahu bawa all the pinggan mangkuk naik flight???!!! Deeemmmmm......boleh ke?

Gotta look for the hotels pulak. Such a short notice la Wan ni.

Appreciate everyone suggestions on this. I think service apartment will be better especially for babies kan?What do you guys think?

Urm~ hr tu I pegi ramai, so kitorang stay kt Condo Istana. (Apartment with 3 rooms)

But b4 ni kitorang penah stay kt Hotel Seaview. The rate was quite cheap and the service pn not bad.

Babe, PP and I have been to 3 trips since she was born. But I belum sampai buat post about travelling with babies yet! So i tell you now la, I went to Langkawi when PP was hmm 3 months old, Pangkor at 4 months and PHUKET at 5 months. So domestics-DROVE and naik speedboat. Phuket..erm fly la kan. Easy. Keep your calm to jer.

Flying: Sumbat sume dalam diaper bag. The usual change of clothes etc. Before take-off and before landing (flight descend jer), FEED hariz! Just remember that!

As for solid food. Not sure la kan coz dont know how long you going. But we're planning to go to Cherating soon and plan nye, bring dry food so all you need is hot water. and a little of Heinz bottled food or something. Or if your place have fridge. Prepare food, pack them, put in freezer bag,sampai hotel, letak dalam freezer. Nak panaskan..erm..hot water? and beli pisang bebanyak for banana pureeeeee

tulis sependek2nya ni. I think i have to do a post about travelling with babies quick2 just for you! bila you going?

OMG! short notice giler! you ada baca babycenter posts? by coincidence they sent my an email about travelling with babies yesterday! so here your travelling with babies FYI:

Post tak sempat :( no time today.
but my other tips, quick 10 tips. particularly for beach babies,

1.SUNBLOCK! get them now!
2.hats.
3.cold towels to lap2 and put on their heads in case of panas.
4.small blanket for flight and hotel.
5.waterproof bedding cover. PP vomited in Phuket on our hotel bed!
6.baby swimtruck! *awwww
7.when going to beach. bring 2 towels for baby! 1 to lie down on and 1 to actually use.
8.umbrellaaa
9.BABY FAN!!!! langkawi is h.o.t
10.plain water. alot for Hariz to minum and if he taknak BF for flight, kasi dia hisap plain water or those fingerfood.

Goodluck in your very short notice preparation! my room was a disaster zone a week before I travelled, yours...hehe worse kut?
