This was an argument for me and dh today and I was just wondering how other people view it. Both my mom and mil have asked to take my one year old out of state (without us/me) and I have said no to both. My husband is upset I said no to his mom. So fellow parents what’s your opinion on it? Out of town vs out of state. Or overnights with either your parent of SO’s parent/in law. At what age? Etc.
Next month we’ll be traveling to Colorado with my boys. One is 2 years and the other is 10 months. I’m so lost on what to do about car seats. Should we bring them with us? We have two graco 4 ever so they’re heavy and bulky. But I’ve also heard renting car seats from a rental car agency is a bad idea. Also, has anyone experienced altitude sickness? We live at the beach in Florida so we’re at se... More
I was wondering who has used one of the fold up travel bassinets and if they thought it was worth it? It seems like it would be nice to use for camping, vacations, and even just going over to family’s house but I was curious what everyone thought? Thank you in advance :)
We're aobut to head out on our yearly two week camping trip! We use a pretty cool app for finding camping sites called ParkAdvisor. It shows all the private and government owned campsites in any area, including a huge number of them we never would have found, but loved. Many of the campsites we wound up in were an hour or so up ever narrowing, apparently deserted, dirt roads through the m... More

At what age was your little one when you stopped sitting in the backseat with them? My son is 7 months and I still sit in the backseat with him, I don’t mind but I would like to be in the front enjoying the outside view and holding my husbands hand. It’s the little things I miss...
There's a mom & dad that are tag teaming their 3 & 1 year-old on our flight, & it's adorable! The dad managed to get seated in a row with the two kids, the mom stayed further back. The kids are super adorbs & the mom's taking each them for walks when she can. Meanwhile, the dad's hanging out with the other kid (kids when the seatbelt sign's on). It's super-fun to see all the teamwork!
Going to a community festival that will just have portable toilets. Not a fan of those and definitely don’t want to take my 2.5 yr old inside when he has to touch everything in sight. I have the OXO 2 in 1 potty seat that I’m just planning on setting up with a plastic bag away from crowded places. Is it considered public indecency if I were to set up my son on a potty like that without closed... More
He is already in a toddler bed at home. Thanks!
My husband has a conference in Amsterdam every September and wants me and our daughter, who will be nearly three, to come. He has to work 3 full days (8am-8pm), and 3 half days (where the other half of the day we could tag along on a work outing like a boat trip or something), and we can extend the trip before or after the conference. The hotel will be paid for, but we'd have to pay for the... More
Me, my husband and 2 kids will be flying for the first time to SF from LAX for a weekend. We'll be flying with Alaskan Airlines. Does anyone know of a rideshare service similar to Uber/Lyft that includes a carseat? We won't be renting a car so we won't be bringing our toddler's bulky car seat. Also how does transporting a double stroller into the airplane work? We have the Uno2D... More
We are very anxious parents (at least the mom is) traveling to another state by plane with an 18 month old child. Mom is curious about logistics and germs. We need to travel with a stroller (city mini) and a car seat but my wife adamant about boxing the car seat and stroller so neither will be damaged or contaminated in the cargo hold. How does everyone else do this? Will we need to purchase a ... More
