Bali with a 6 month old - is it safe?

We are planning a trip next in October/November next year for when our baby will be 6 months. Where would you stay with a baby and is it safe? I have heard of bali water issues etc.

1. Re: Bali with a 6 month old - is it safe?

I went there with my 5 month old and didn't have any issues with the water. I showered him normally.

For drinking, he was breastfed and also had formula milk, which I used Evian water. I also rented a steriliser and a car seat. I also did bring his own food for him.

But we didn't have any problems. :-)

Bali is a good destination. Sanur is an ideal place to base yourself. You can read the article I have written on the right hand side of this page under "top question".

thanks for that, it gives me peace of mind. Where did you rent your steriliser and car seat from?

Try the book "Bali With Kids".

It is available on line.

Some great tips.

They have a web site with a sample chapter.

Here is the link.

tripadvisor.com.au/ShowTopic-g294226-i7220-k…

you can see it also on the right hand side of this page.

It is cheaper to take milton tablets and use a plastic container to sterilise baby bottles etc.

Buy yourself a second hand light weight stroller from a garage sale / op shop for around $10 - $20 and leave it in Bali when you return home.

there are also drivers in Bali with car seats. I have donated to one driver. Here is his link.

Hiring works out more expensive.

Best to leave your stroller at home and use a cheap one. Large prams are useless, the footpaths are not the best and it is difficult to fit a large stroller into the small shops / restaurants.

Sanur has a great paved path all along the beach and it is a lovely area to stay for a family.

Hi,

I rented it here:

http://www.balibaby.com/

but here are other sites as well, like:

http://www.balibabyhire.com/

http://www.balibabycare.com/

Dean is reliable and responsible. :-)

I had to hire mine then as no one had infant car seats then, they had the regular car seats for a toddler.

More drivers have infant seats. The one we use, Kadek, balipersonaldriver.com, has baby seats and boosters seats, a stroller and doesn't charge extra for them. He has a late model car and they are properly fitted and Australian approved.
