• Tips and tricks for traveling with a baby

    2010-05-07

    Mother's Day is this weekend and throughout the country new mothers will be traveling to visit their newly minted grandmothers for a multi-generational celebration. Yet while traveling to visit one's mother is a great idea, bringing along a baby is a different story altogether.

    One suggestion to make travel easier is to book a flight with another family. While arranging a joint vacation can be difficult, keeping the newborn entertained and happy makes the journey that much easier, and by letting two babies play together both families win. This can also be achieved by traveling with older relatives like aunts or grandparents, who can watch the children for a while, allowing parents a chance to relax.

    Another consideration is to ask about borrowing baby gear at the final destination. With the mounting airline fees being tacked on for baggage, using a friend of family member's stroller can save a lot of money when booking a flight.

    Parents will also want to stretch out their vacation schedule so as not to agitate or tire out little ones. A tired baby typically means a fussy baby, so parents would be advised to take things a little slower while traveling with children.
