As a mom who’s changed diapers on four continents and traveled widely with three children, I know the importance of finding the best travel stroller for your family’s brand of adventures. But I also know that finding the best travel stroller for your trip with a growing baby or toddler–or combination of little ones–can be a tricky business! If you forego features in favor of a lighter load, will you regret it on your vacation? Can a compact stroller be too compact to keep a baby or toddler — or jet-lagged preschooler — happy on day trips far from home? Let’s start with some important buyi ..read more

Travels with Baby | The ultimate guide for travel with children from birth to 5 years.
by Shelly Rivoli
1y ago
When flying with car seats — whether you plan to use your child’s car seat on the airplane or not — it’s far better to check the car seat at the gate than subject it to the rigors of the airport baggage system and 50 lb. suitcases traveling through it. (Remember, any car seat that’s been in even a low-speed accident should be replaced.) Fortunately, getting that one extra–and often cumbersome–item, AKA your car seat through the airport may be easier than you think. Here are the seven best ways to get a car seat through the airport.

See (really) Big Trees at Calaveras Big Trees State Park | Northern California
Travels with Baby | The ultimate guide for travel with children from birth to 5 years.

To complete our Eastern Sierra road trip, I felt it was only natural that we should call upon one of my favorite California state parks: Calaveras Big Trees. The park is home to two groves of massive giant sequoias (AKA Sierra redwoods). As it happened, we would be “practically passing right by” on our way home — if we just took the Sonora Pass (Hwy 108) and drove a little way north. Famous last words. I remember hearing once that if you could take all the blood vessels and veins in the human body and lay them end-to-end, they could wrap around the earth nearly three times. I’m not sure i ..read more
