    Congrats! We moved house 3 months ago. Was hard living in a house full of boxes, but we managed - just leave all the toys he plays with to be packed at the very last day. The day it self we drove our son to my parents to look after for the day and to not bring him back till mid-day the day after. This gave us the time and space to sort out the move and unpack his room and a place for him to play while we unpacked the rest of the house.

    Good luck!

    I recently did it with 2 and had to do most of the packing/unpacking myself!

    Leave the most-used toys to the last minute.
    Pack a little bit every day.
    Don't overfill the boxes (like I did oops!).
    See if anyone can do child-minding duties (my mum had ours for 3 days but we had boats & flights to contend with!).
    Hire a cleaner if you can, saves on soooo much stress.
    Start with the kitchen earlier than you plan to. There is always a lot more than you think there will be :/
