So we asked at our last appointment if it was safe for me to travel because of Zika virus (we were thinking Florida) and our doctor said it was okay to go anywhere! She said the Zika virus isn’t a huge concern anymore, just to use bug spray and stuff. So since this whole Red Tide craziness in Florida, we cancelled our trip and booked a trip to Riviera Maya. I was just looking at CDC website and... More
In a few weeks, we’ll be flying with our baby for the first time on a 6 hour international flight! Pretty excited, but also nervous cause I’ll be headed to the airport and going through security by myself (meeting my husband at the gate cause he’s coming in from another flight). So, of course, I have a bunch of questions that hopefully you wonderful mothers can help me with! 1. My baby drinks ... More

I recently flew 13 hours with my infant as a lap child. We were lucky enough to fly first class but I had a pretty awful experience with one of the flight attendants where about 8 hours on when my baby started to fuss she told us that we were welcome to go back to economy where there were plenty of open seats, as the crew was trying to get some much needed rest in the seats next to us. She didn... More

They are smashed tight in width and I have to scoot my passenger seat close to allow leg ... More
Moms I need some advice. I am traveling with my baby a lot over the next few months. Every airline tells me it is ok to fly with an infant in my arms and that I do not need a ticket. However I am seeing posts on the dangers of doing this in case of turbulence. And of course there are also posts of parents who bought a ticket, brought the car seat and were not allowed to use it. If you can share... More
We're well set for entertainment, but I've not needed to do multiple days of long driving with him. How long did you drive a day? How many days in a row? How were your break days scheduled? Or did you just go with it until the behavior meter said you needed a break day? SD to CA with flexible timeline. Might add GA and Carolinas this winter before MN in mid-April.
Am traveling with my 10mos old son internationally. It will be very long flight like 14-15hrs (1hault) Please suggest something to engage my son during long flight. What should I carry.

Do I need to car... More
Thinking of going to Iceland early September with our son, for approx 3-4 days. This will be our first trip on a “long” flight from NYC. Any tips on flying to make it easier with a baby? Since he’s so young, this mean we have to bring the car seat with us, right? So they have a safe place to sit in the taxi there? Any suggestions on things to do, places to see with a baby in Iceland? What ar... More
Anybody ever utilize car seats for a rental car at the airport? Flying to Colorado and the rental company says they will have a car seat for my two year old but I'm not sure how much I trust them. Weighing the option of lugging my child car seat between multiple airports or not.
I'm looking for hotels that have bunk beds or extra rooms...we will have 6 kiddos with us. We were thinking of stopping near lexington?
We are taking our baby to Australia for Christmas with my husband’s whole family (his sisters live there) and all 8 of us will be camping out in his sisters’ two bed, one bath apartment for two weeks (insane, I know. I’m trying to be cool with it). My baby will be 9 months and likely crawling by then and I’ve asked if their place is baby proof. They said yes but they don’t have their own kids a... More

Can anyone recommend a vacation rental (continental US) that is baby proof/toddler friendly? Would love to get away (beach/mountain - somewhere outside) but kids get into everything and looking for a place that is already baby proofed. I know relaxing not really in the cards with this age group, but would love a change of scenery without anxiety of stairs to fall down and expensive furnishings ... More
