Shelly Rivoli with 7-month-old daughter in ThailandSince August of 2007, the "Travels with Baby Tips" blog has provided new parents with inspiration, expert advice, and insightful tips to help families with young children have their most rewarding travel experiences possible.

Unlike most bloggers writing on the topic of family travel today, Shelly researched, lived and wrote an award-winning 320-page book on the topic for before her Travels with Baby Tips blog even began (2007), and in February 2014 she completed a revised and expanded edition of Travels with Baby: The Ultimate Guide for Planning Travel with Your Baby, Toddler, and Preschooler of more than 400 pages.

Shelly's expertise extends far beyond her own personal travel experiences with one, two, and now three children -- though you can bet that having changed diapers on four continents and continuing to travel with her family of five keeps the content lively and extremely relevant. 

Now with an international following and weekly questions from readers planning travel with infants through school-age children, the Travels with Baby Tips blog continues to address the real questions and conundrums parents face when planning travel with young children.
