Postpartum Expectation vs Reality

Travelling overseas with a baby

The thought of travelling with an infant gave me so much anxiety, I googled tips and tricks, I read so many blogs.   What were we getting ourselves into? What if she cries hysterically on the plane over? What do we take for her? How do I sterilise bottles in a country where we can’t…
