Nice one. I made a trip to India from Australia with my little daughter, 20 months old for 18 days. I did the same with my older daughter when she was 22 months for 10 days. Mum was at home.
I can tell you that those two experiences were special. The bonding, learning and fun was incredible. I always tell anyone who asks me children need there things — food, sleep and play. The rest is history!
Every father out there I would suggest the same. Go. For. It. Go with your little one. Break the fear.
