In my last short-haul trip with a baby and toddler, I remember how stressful it was at the time, I wanted this trip to Lake Como to be less stressful and to minimise tearful outbursts from the boys.
I am aware that we no longer have an infant who napped a lot more frequently Joel who is now 20 months is pretty much as active as Tim. There were no direct flights from Newcastle so I had to make plans for airport transfers, snack, on flight entertainment, distractions and so on.
I deliberated taking a double buggy but felt this would be bulky and would potentially end up taking a lot of boot space with not enough space for our luggage so I opted to take a collapsable single stroller that could fit in the aircraft cabin and I am so glad that I did. I will share my review of this stroller in a different post.
I was concerned about Tim not wanting to walk long distances in the airport and didn’t want to end up carrying him while pushing a stroller plus my backpack.
