Travels with Baby

The Ultimate Guide for Planning Travel with Your Baby, Toddler, and Preschooler by Shelly Rivoli

2014 Lowell Thomas Bronze Award Winner in Guidebooks

2014 NAPPA Silver Award Winner in Parenting Resources

From award-winning family travel author and blogger Shelly Rivoli comes this revised and expanded second edition of her original Travels with Baby guide, which received a NAPPA Gold Award in Parenting Resources and was a finalist for two ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Awards (Parenting and Travel Guides).

Travels with Baby helps parents plan virtually every trip they take with their child from birth through four years, from the earliest weekend getaways to overseas adventures. Airline and cruise line comparison tables, as well as all-inclusive resort and hotel comparisons, help parents pinpoint where their vacation dollars and time may best be spent, based on the ages of their young children, interests, and needs. Family road trips are also addressed in detail, as well as train travel with children in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

However, getting from A to B is only one small part of successful travel with the younger set, as the author and mother of three knows very well. Additional sections offer a wealth of helpful information on topics including:

  • traveling with children of different temperaments,

  • managing changes in sleeping and feeding routines,

  • reserving and using airplane bassinets on overseas flights,

  • unique products and helpful gear for travel with babies and toddlers,

  • traveling with potty trainees,

  • packing lists and checklists,

  • travelerís health issues for young children and breastfeeding mothers,

  • childproofing during travel,

  • and suggestions for where to travel when during a childís first years.

Plenty of money-saving tips are included along the way, as well as additional websites and resources to simplify travel planning for busy parents.. Click here to see the Table of Contents of the new Travels with Baby.

Also available for Kindle and Nook

  Praise for the new edition of Travels with Baby:

The Ultimate Guide for Planning Travel with Your Baby, Toddler, and Preschooler


" In this revised edition of her invaluable guide for peripatetic parents, she offers a wealth of practical suggestions for every conceivable situation, from a longhaul flight with an infant to backcountry camping with a toddler. Naturally there is a healthy measure of autobiography in this volume too. For a start, the book is illustrated with lots of the author's holidays snaps of her children, now 10, 8 and 5. But her wisdom has been widened by insights shared on her blog (www.travelswithbaby.com) which has been going for a decade."    - Susan Griffiths, Perceptive Travel


"The book offers detailed packing lists, depending on what type of trip youíre taking (beach, urban, camping); tips for transporting children (with stroller, sling and other carrier recommendations); and advice for handling changes in routine (whether itís sleeping, eating or, later, potty training)... Indeed, this book covers travel with children as young as a couple months, but also address issues unique to 3- and 4-year-olds, such as games and activities to keep preschoolers busy on the plane and during an airport layover, as well as ways young children can help plan a trip so they 'own' the vacation as much as adults do." - Kara Williams, The Vacation Gals

"Shelly's a real travel writer who is out and about with her family more than most and she strikes a good balance between urging you to explore and staying safe and healthy along the way. Good solid advice if you're a parent wanting to travel with little ones."     - Tim Leffel, author of The World's Cheapest Destinations

"...add up all the helpful knowledge packed into this one tome...and Travels with Baby is the best general family travel guidebook on the market today." - Spot Cool Stuff/Travel
