Happy fall to you!
Quick note to say the new Travels with Baby site is looking great and is very close to coming online! Also, my other family travel site geared toward TRAVEL WITH KIDS 5 YEARS AND OLDER has a number of new articles that may be of interest to you, including The 411 on Dublin with Kids, The 411 on Adirondack Park with Kids, and How to build a budget-friendly Maui family vacation. Stop by and see what you think! And without further ado, these 3 Most Important Travels with Baby Tips you might miss…
I was recently reminded how the “miracle that is the internet” makes it so easy to find the answers to the questions you have. The only problem is when you don’t know all of the questions you should be asking.
Each year I hear from at least one parent who was unpleasantly surprised by the “letter of consent” needed for trips just over the U.S./Canada or U.S./Mexico borders, and parents who are mystified that an airline insisted on seeing proof of an infant’s age on a domestic flight with a baby. Don’t let it happen to you!
If you’ll be traveling in any of these circumstances, be sure to read these posts first:
1. Parents traveling solo with a child – Will your child need a “letter of consent for minor to travel abroad”?
2. Domestic flights with an infant or child under 2 years old – The real reason babies and toddlers need I.D. for domestic flights
3. Closed-loop cruises with babies and children – Ask Shelly: Cruise to Bahamas without passport?
For answers to other travel questions you might not know to ask (yet), be sure to consult your trusty Travels with Baby: The Ultimate Guide for Planning Travel with Your Baby, Toddler, and Preschooler. BTW, it’s on sale and eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping at Amazon! 😉
