This post is also a guide for those traveling for the first time with their babies/toddlers.
I can tell you from experience that traveling with your baby for the first time is probably one of the most nerve wracking moments you’ll ever experience. There’s just a lot to consider and a lot of uncertainties. And it needs massive preparation. I planned our first out of the country trip with Light months prior (if you’re using your miles, you have to consider the time it takes to transfer, etc.) and I think there were still a few elements that surprised me.
If you are planning to travel with your baby for the first time and haven’t decided on anything yet, you might want to get a copy of this book – The Toddler Travels by Genevieve Gutierrez-Figueroa. It will give you ideas on where to go first, what to do/expect on your first travel with your baby or toddler. I did a review about it here. You can check it first before getting the book. 🙂
