Travels with Baby: The Ultimate Guide for Planning Travel with Your Baby, Toddler, and Preschooler


* Winner of the Society of American Travel Writers Foundation’s Lowell Thomas Awards for Bronze Medal in Guidebooks and Gold Award winner in Travel Books from the North American Travel Journalists Association * From award-winning family travel author and blogger Shelly Rivoli comes this revised and expanded second edition of her original Travels with Baby guide, which received a NAPPA Gold Award in Parenting Resources and was a finalist for two ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Awards (Parenting and Travel Guides). Travels with Baby helps parents plan virtually every trip they take with their child from birth through four years, from the earliest weekend getaways to overseas adventures. Airline and cruise line comparison charts, as well as all-inclusive resort and hotel comparisons, help parents pinpoint where their vacation dollars and time may best be spent, based on the ages of their young children, interests, and needs. Family road trips are also addressed in detail, as well as train travel with children in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. However, getting from A to B is only one small part of successful travel with the younger set, as the author and mother of three knows very well. Additional sections offer a wealth of helpful information on topics including: * traveling with children of different temperaments, * managing changes in sleeping and feeding routines, * reserving and using airplane bassinets for overseas flights, * traveling with potty trainees, * packing lists and checklists, * traveler’s health issues for young children and breastfeeding mothers, * childproofing during travel, * and helpful suggestions for where to travel when during a child’s first years. Plenty of money-saving tips are included along the way, as well as additional websites and resources to simplify travel planning for busy parents.
