    I would like to book a holiday for the beginning of July, baby will be nearly 4 months by then. What are people's opinions? Is it too early?

    Also I am planning to breastfeed, but am realsitic about the possibility of having to bottle feed - how does that work if you are abroad? I.e. if you can't use the tap water, and you aren't supposed to use bottled water, how to you make up bottles? (I don't really know anything about bottle feeding so i might just be being stupid!)

    were taking this baby on holiday at 3 months old. we took alana at about that age too.

    we were staying in a hotel, so we took a travel kettle to boil up the tap water and make up bottles and kept them in the mini bar :rotfl:

    we also brought them tomme tippe dispossable bottles so we didnt have to worry about washing and sterlising them.

    where are you planning on going? we went to hungary and were going to hungary again this time so i know the tap water is save.

    OH and I are planning to go away also when baby will be about 4/5mths. We have a place in Thailand so are going out there for a few weeks. I was planning on breastfeeding, I plan on doing some proper research on it have already looked into the injection situation, but I have spoken to some friends who have been away when their bubs are small and its all been fine. I'm going to check with Health Visitor when she starts coming to see me too

    Im taking bay to saint tropez for its 1st holiday. We go there every year anyway, it will be about 3 months old. will go to the monaco grand prix too and leave lo with my mum to babysit!
    Cant wait for when they will be old enough to play in the sand.
    Im sure by 3 months we will be in a routine and will all be ok to holiday.
