The first Christmas after my oldest daughter Harlan was born, my husband was living here in New York City and I was still in Florida. Because he had a new job, he couldn’t take off too many days to come down and spend the holidays with us. Due to his lack of time off of work, we decided that I was going to travel up to New York City for the holidays with Harlan. She was only three months old at the time and although I had travelled with her alone before, this was the first time that I was traveling alone during the craziness of the holidays.
It’s not the ideal time to travel by yourself with a baby, but it can be completely manageable if you plan well and remain relaxed (easier said than done.) We’ve all heard the general travel tips with a baby of arriving early, bring things to keep them entertained, and packing all of the necessities, but the holidays can bring on an extra level of stress. Why not have some fun while traveling with your little one this holiday season with some fun holiday themed activities to keep your baby entertained. Check out some of my favorite activities for traveling during the holidays after the jump!
