Difficult is an understatement when it comes to describing the parents' situation when they bring their baby or toddler with them on trips. Taking care of a child at home is already a hassle to begin with, what more when you bring said child to an unfamiliar place with lots of unfamiliar people, customs, and rules. It's a recipe for disaster.
Thankfully, we have some experienced parents who have gone through the hassle and devised ways to make their trips with their children a lot smoother and easier, or at the very least, decent. Here is a list of seven tips for traveling with your baby or toddler. The first one is probably a traveling rule of thumb, that is, to pack light:
Skip the crib. Babies are heavy—or rather, their accouterments are. So don’t bring what you don’t have to. “On Airbnb, I filter by houses with cribs or high chairs. (It's hidden in amenities.) This makes traveling with my eight-month-old and three-year-old much easier.” Searches can also be customized to suit families - and you can add “infants” to the guests to only show homes that are baby friendly.
