Travelling with Kids?

Posted by chrisrieom on 20/2/2014 at 05:14

I am currently 9 months (37 weeks pregnant). I have a 5 (6 in November) year old step daughter from my spouse's first marriage.
We are looking into going on a trip this Christmas (approved already by our doctor) with ourselves and the kids. Both my spouse and I have only travelled out of country by ourselves (never with kids) so we're not quite sure what's the best way with kids.
Questions I have are:
1. Does anyone have any first hand experience with what worked/didn't work when travelling with kids?
2. Has anyone used the babysitting services offered by more expensive resorts...and if so, what was your thoughts on them?
3. We've also thought about taking our parents or other friends along (who have kids) to help with the kids. We'd like to have one adult oriented night out of the week. Has anyone done this? Pros and cons?
4. What are some safety precautions you've taken with bringing your children along?
Thanks for all your input! It's appreciated
