We have never been one to keep baby at home as I follow a very Scandinavian mindset when it comes to these matters. Probably stems from reading up on a lot of their parenting guides when I first knew we were going to have a baby.
Our eldest :-
1st trip after being discharged? We brought her to Babyland at PJ SS2 when she was 2 days old.
10 days old, a day trip to Malacca. Why? Wanted to bring her near a coast line and it is good for the mummy too to get out of the house. Took forever to get there as every 45 minutes would stop to lift her off the seat to hold her for 10-15 minutes before continuing the journey.
20 days old, brought to Genting for 2 nites as I had an event. I finally for the first time knew my then Alfa MiTo could be driven at 90km/h on the highway and it could be driven slow up that road to Genting. Would drive 10-15 minutes, then stop as was very afraid her ears couldn't take the pressure. She slept through the entire journey.
30 days old, brought to Penang for 5d/4n also for an event. Took 11 hours to get to Penang as drove 20 minutes stop 10 minutes or longer. I became very familiar with all the RnR stops and lay-bys.
45 days old, brought to Cameron Highlands for a week. We did lots of stops and get out of car along the way. Took 8 hours to arrive our hotel. This one was done together with another family that had a 23 day old son, a maid and a grandmother.
100 days old, brought on her first flight to Phuket. Best tip?? Time the feedings so the entire time during take off the baby is being breastfed. Entire flight was drama free.
Supposedly mountain and coastal air is good for both mummy and baby.
When we had our 2nd, did something fairly similar too except Genting was replaced with Frasers' Hill.
Best advice on travelling with a young baby?? Forget schedules, time tables and itineraries. If it is a travel for business that the wife is tagging along leave early as you WILL be needing to make lots of stops.
On staying in hotels? Try to stay in the best ones you can afford as higher end hotels are far better at accommodating a baby than lower end ones and try to keep sleeping arrangements to be as close as possible to that at home.
Regrets??? Wish I had made time to bring them on more trips.
Advice for dads : Take care of the mummy very well during travels.

i'm a frequent traveller with my wife and baby ( about to be 1 years)
May i know what should i invest since i dont prefer to give puree to my baby and prefer make him porride
from my reading, its good if i invest buy a travel cooker or warmer and also storage (eg coleman )
The best?? Buy a compact rice cooker and a hand cranked food processor. That was my wife's favored method as at that time most of those baby food makers were at its infancy and many of them took a long time to cook.
Today, the Philips Avent ones are pretty good.
