Starting to panic, traveling to Europe with 4 month old baby...

Jump to last reply

We're leaving in less than 2 weeks for a 16 day trip to London and Paris with our daughter who will be 17 weeks when we leave and I'm staring to panic. I'm a nervous nelly to begin with and I'm imagining all kinds of horrible things like her screaming for 9 hours on the plane or being abducted from our apartment or off the street, I keep thinking of that little girl Madeleine McCann who was abducted while her parents were vacationing in Portugal! I know I'm completely insane. Then I start thinking of even basic logistics like I remember having trouble finding a bathroom for myself let alone one I could change a baby in!

Anyone out there who's BTDT and lived to tell about it that can offer some encouraging words or last minute advice??? Preferably something helpful not "run like like hell", LOL :)) Did you actually have fun or was your trip overtaken by caring for the baby?
