Dad's Facebook Post About Taking His Baby on Vacation

This Hysterical Dad Completely Nailed What It's Like to Take a Baby on Vacation

In 2016, Matt Coyne was a new dad to a then 6-month-old Charlie, and learned very quickly that life with a little human can be a bit difficult to navigate — especially if you want to go abroad on vacation. In a hilarious post to his Facebook page, Man vs Baby, Coyne listed the things he learned after taking Charlie on vacation — borderline disastrous things that are so completely relatable they had us in tears.

We had a checklist for what to pack, it had just one item on it: "everything."

When airlines say they have "baby changing facilities" what they actually mean is: "a shelf."

If your baby will sit quietly during the flight that's great. If they will sleep, even better. If, like Charlie, your little one likes to "stand" . . . You can look forward to what feels like a midget river-dancing on your bollocks for the next four hours.

Although the humor in the post comes from a place of frustration that most parents can empathize with, Coyne says his main advice to parents considering taking their child on vacation is to go. "For all its pissy little challenges, to spend time together away from our newly destroyed home was incredibly special."
