Hi ladies just looking for your thoughts. When is the right time to go on vacation with your baby? Like what age? Or, alternatively, when is the right time to leave them with say, their grandparents for a week? I know I'm being sort of selfish but I'm 19 and I've never been on a "real" vacation... my family just didn't do that sort of thing; I don't even know if my parents have ever gone anywhere. They're very outdoorsy.. they like to go backpacking and camping. And they like to go visit American civil war tourist sites etc. My parents left us with my grandparents as young children but I'm not sure what the rest of the world does? lol. And, if you've gone on vacation with your baby.. how did it affect travel plans in terms of destination, activities you were able to do, etc? I'd like to go down to the Caribbean somewhere or to Mexico, Central America you know.. and I don't think those are really baby-friendly destinations IYKWIM.
