Be prepared that baby may be cranky because of new environment and also if you bring him out too often he may be overstimulated or over tired. You can go for holiday and staycation but just be prepared of all the crankiness and tiredness for the parents . However it also depends on baby. Some babies are less fussy. Actually I will tell my husband priority is the kids . We have to sacrifice some things when we have kids and make adjustment. I will choose staycation because at least the environment is more familiar . Even if your husband take leave u all also can have fun going out in Singapore without having to go for staycation or overseas. Go gardens by the bay, sentosa etc

Your husband is really sweet to take a week of leave for your birthday. If you are worried about travelling with your baby to another country, u can choose to have a staycation in S'pore. You guys can stay in hotels or chalets and go out for some fun in the daytime. At least you and your baby are in a familiar environment, still within the country. You guys can still go out and have fun even if you don't have a staycation. Just explore Singapore with your baby in toll but you can do it at your own pace. Own time own target.

Depends on how easy your LO takes to new environment. I brought mine for vacation on his 3rd, 6th and 7th month and each last between 4-8 days and he dealt with it perfectly. We tried fights, long coach journeys, long road trips on the road. Some vacations we travel so much that we stayed in different accommodations at different locations every night. If you still feel unsure then a staycation might be better for a start.

What about looking for alternative care for your lo? Family members or friends? It is not advisable to bring baby as baby is so young. Travelling with a 2 month old is no joke. With that said, if you have no other options then just take it as a family outing. Also pack enough and extra for baby as well.

I would say for young infants it's pretty easy as they are still young. As long you are there, just keep to baby routine, everything will be fine. go enjoy!

young infants are usually easier to bring out in my opinon. Just make sure you stick to their sleep routine and food routine as per normal!
