Baby Travel – Basics and Extras
Trains , Planes, or Automobiles. Traveling with an infant should fall somewhere on the stress chart near losing your job, or a death in the family. An enclosed space, unsympathetic seat neighbors (occasionally sympathetic), and your sweet little baby AKA ticking time bomb. Nothing on this list is a must have but some of these might make your travel experience better.
- Car Seat Cover If you check your car seat as luggage when you fly, protect it with a car seat cover. The J.L. Childress is a smart choice because it can be used as a backpack. And when you are traveling with an infant, a free hand is your most precious commodity.
- Stroller Cover Even if you check your stroller at the gate the luggage handlers will find a way to break it. Protect your small investment with a stroller cover.
- Car Mirror Those rear facing car seats make it hard to stare at your baby all day long. One of these will remedy that situation.
- Sun Shade Baby’s don’t like sun in their eyes and they don’t make Chanel sunglasses in baby size. Especially if you drive a lot, these retractable sun shades will get a lot of use.
The best part of traveling with an infant, you’ll get to go in the expedited security check line. To make sure you get noticed ask the line guard what line your “family” should get in.
