Hi just looking for advise please

We are thinking of going to Morocco in September and dd will be 14 months but she doesn’t walk yet she crawls and cruises but no sign of walking and I am stressing we shouldn’t be going but dh is adamant we all need a break and really wants to go my parents are also coming but just not sure if we are doing the right thing and would be better off waiting until she can walk

Why would it matter????? Moroccan babies crawl before they can walk, what are you worried will happen?

I think you need to assess what exactly you are worried about as I can see no reason you wouldn’t go in the holiday.

My 14 month crawler would have been much easier to take on holiday than my 20 month walker. Go and enjoy your holiday.

What are you worried about?

The flight won't be fun with a child of that age but that will be the case up to about three, when they can be reliably distracted with screens.

What are you concerned about? At 14 months, she wouldn't be walking miles anyway, so you'd still need a sling/pushchair for most if it.
Echoing others, the flight will be pants, but cant see a problem with the rest

Thank you all I feel so much more better and will go ahead and just relax and enjoy.

I wasn’t particularly worried about anything but I’m a first time mum and seem to worry about anything that we do first time as it’s all new (I was a natural worried before kids)

In my experience both crawlers and early walkers is a bit tricky.
It can be quite stressful trying to make a space safe enough for them so that you can relax. But On balance I’d say a crawler is easier than a newly-walking child.
Also depends on the holiday. If you are going to mountains then just make sure you have the rucksack which they can go in (forgotten name) otherwise if in city then I’d take
The buggy and stay somewhere that wasn’t like a riad with a million steps and preferably a nice pool
