Holy smokes! Only one week until the 2nd edition Travels with Baby guidebook will be released! I tell you, I am so excited that it’s not been easy to sleep. But I figured what better way to pass the time than by kicking off the first giveaway in celebration of the new edition?!
Who could use a CARES flight safety harness???
The good people at Kids Fly Safe are going to give one lucky reader a new CARES flight safety harness—the easy way to keep your child at least 1 year and 22 lbs. and older safe on airplanes without the use of a car seat. Hooray! I have used CARES now with all 3 of my children at different times and on different trips. You can read all about my experiences with CARES in the new 2nd edition Travels with Baby and in my online review of CARES here.
And since I can’t wait to share the new guidebook with you (418 pages of travel planning advice, insights, how-to’s, checklists, and resources!), I’m going to go ahead and give you a sneak preview of the Table of Contents as part of the fun, and send one of the first printed copies to the lucky winner, too!
So, you wanna win a CARES flight safety harness—and a copy of the new 2nd edition Travels with Baby ($97 value)? Here’s what to do:
