Recommendations on a bike trailer needed. What brands? What features should I be considering and why? I have two small dogs and baby...can I fit them all in a double? There looks to be ones that only attach to the bike and others that can convert to being used as a stand alone...pros and cons?
I’m flying with my 3-year-old and 5 month baby. This will be my and their first time flying. It’s only an hour long flight, but I’m still feeling pretty nervous. Any tips? I’m specifically worried about their ears hurting.
My daughter and I are taking a 2 hour flight in about a month. This is the first time I am taking my 19 month old (age at departure) on an airplane... A few questions I have are as following: 1) How can I get her ears to pop as we depart? 2) What are some things to keep her entertained (that the airport won't charge me a ridculous price for)? 3) Sitting on lap vs. having her own seat?

She used to sleep for hours in the car now she most certainly will not. She will only nod off if I am back there nursing her to sleep. I’m starting to feel really isolated at home because I can only ever go places in between naps and by the time we get anywhere, it’s time to leave. I also can’t go anywhere by myself because I obviously can’t drive and nurse at the same time. I want to do things... More
What are some activities you bring for your toddler on long road trips, besides electronics? My almost two year old has a Kindle that we download shows on, but he gets bored. He HATES car rides and it’s exhausting! Help!! We are about to take two very long trips!
We are traveling to Canada and to Europe over the Summer. My (then) 20 month year old and I will share a bed (staying with family). I’m so nervous about it since he doesn’t do well when we have brought him into bed with us in the past (restless, kicks, tosses and turns, etc). He has a hard time falling asleep and moves non-stop. Any tips or advice? Asking my family to purchase a crib is way ... More
In August we will be going on a road trip that’s about 18 hours away. First day is about 12 hours on the road. The next day is 6 hours to our final destination. We will be gone for a week and half. We have the option to leave her home with the grandparents, but I’m worried she will wear them out since they will be providing 24/7 care and she likes to be on the go. Or we can bring her with us on... More
What's the best, most comfortable travel crib ? Phil and Teds, Baby Bjorn, or any other? Also, what's better -- checking a car seat or buying an extra ticket and having toddler sit in the car seat on the airplane? If so, what's a safe, easy to install car seat? Any other recommendations or suggestions for traveling with toddler? TIA!!
I have no idea what I should do to keep him entertained or how to make it as smooth as possible. Any suggestions or help from anyone will be great!!! Thank you!

CA Legoland Annual Passes? Worth it for an 18 mo?
We are thinking about getting the standard Merlin pass where the aquarium and regular park is unlimited but the water park is limited. I last went there 10 years ago with a 4, 5 and 7 year old. They had fun. But will it be fun for a small toddler?
