Up In the Air with a Baby


Up in the Air starring George Clooney was one of most acclaimed movies of 2009. If someone were to make a movie about your family traveling across country, what would the reviews be? Two thumbs up, or run screaming from the theater? Taking a baby on a plane doesn't have to be a travel nightmare for you, your baby, or the other passengers. All it takes is a little planning and you can be sure that the only turbulence will be caused on the outside of the plane.


For starters, make it easy on yourself as you travel through the airport. Kiddie travel systems such as Go-Go Kidz Travelmate help keep kids in one place so you don't have keep one eye out for your little one while you are trying to check your bags. It's lightweight and fits most car seats.

Once you are on the plane, there is no reason to sacrifice safety. You can keep your baby safely on your lap during flight with this Baby B'Air Seatbelt system. It's comfy for your baby and lightweight enough to fit in your diaper bag after you land.


While you are on the plane it is important to keep your child occupied. We have traveled with our laptop and played kid friendly movies during the trip. If that is not an option then purchase a few inexpensive new toys to entertain your baby. Small toys such as these small puzzles will keep your baby occupied during the flight.


If your children are older, don't forget classics like the Uno Card Game. They are a great solution to keep idle hands busy during flight.


Don't forget the landing. This is a time when many people get sick or experience uncomfortable pressure in their ears. Luckily, you can solve this problem by giving your child a lollipop or sippy cup. The swallowing action will open up their ears giving your child some comfort.

Now that you are prepared for the plane ride, you can start planning the rest of the trip. If all goes well, you won't need a vacation from your vacation.

On the road again, with baby


The summer travel season is upon us. It actually reminds me of Christmas time. Make your list, check it twice. Babies show no forgiveness if an essential item is forgotten on a vacation. Of course, you have the basics like a safe and sturdy car seat for road trips. But there are a few items to take along that you might not think of. Pacifier Wipes are useful when your baby likes to play "fetch" with you. You know the game when your baby drops the pacifier and you get to pick it up 15 times?


Another travel necessity is toys. Toys, toys, toys. These can't be just any set of toys. They have to be new and exciting. Small but colorful toys like Jacques the Peacock are just what your baby needs to stay entertained. He has plenty of features to keep your baby busy and there is a clip that will keep him from rolling away if your baby lets go of him.


You probably plan to bring snacks. Good idea. You need to serve these snacks in a travel friendly and kid friendly way or you will have a real mess on your hands. Snack traps keep food in the cup and are soft enough for little fingers to reach in and grab what they need. If you think your little one is old enough to forego the sippy cup on this trip and you opt for juice boxes, you may want to consider a firm juice box holder like this one.


This drink box holder is available in several colors and fits almost all juice box and juice bag brands. No more squeezy surprises that will cover your baby and car in a sticky mess.

Last, don't forget how much garbage a little person can create on a road trip. Bring plenty of bags that you saved from grocery shopping. It's a great way to contain any mess, from dirty diapers to snack wrappers. After a long drive, the last thing you will want to do is clean out a cluttered car.

Getting away on an old fashioned family road trip can be fun. The key is to prepare and prepare some more. Go get ready and hit the road!

This one can be installed without a hanging cord that can be a safety hazard. It also has anti skipping technology to prevent interruptions during a bumpy ride.

Texthook: push buttons while pushing a stroller


Many people would agree that texting while driving is unsafe. How about texting while pushing a stroller? If you are a parent who wants to keep your technology close and your loved ones closer, this texthook is for you. It attaches to almost any mobile object that has a handle bar, such as a bike, exercise equipment and even a shopping cart. Although, I doubt you should use it while attempting to use any moving object. It is pretty universally sized. Most phones and blackberrys will fit in the texthook. If you know a work at home mom, this might be an ideal Mother's Day gift. Now your favorite mom can take the baby for a walk in the middle of the day without missing any important emails. It's the ultimate in work life balance.
