Travel Advice Needed

I have been a really bad blogger lately- and a really bad a lot of things to be honest- but that will have to wait for a later post.

We're about to embark on our first air travel trip with Nora and I need advice from some seasoned mom-travelers. Here is our scenario (thank the Lord this is all the same time zone):

  • Leave our home at 9:00 am
  • Flight leaves airport at 11:20 am and arrives destination 2:44 pm
  • Layover- 2:44 pm - 5:10 pm
  • Arrive destination: 7:40 pm
  • Go through customs, get rental car, leave airport: 8:4o pm
  • Arrive resort 10:40 pm

This schedule makes me feel like I'm going to need a week on the beach to recuperate from our travel. I know it's totally do-able with some good planning, so, I'm counting on all of you moms to give me some expert advice on traveling with an 11 month old by car, plane and 4WD.

Thanks in advance for any tricks you might have!


  1. My bff just posted about this topic today!! She is a seasoned world traveler with her two in tow!

  2. You can take liquids over 3 oz. for the baby, but they may want to test them (in my case I opened the bottle and they waved a test strip over the liquid), but I think it's easier to have powdered formula and buy water after you get through security. I bought a bunch of evenflo plastic bottles ($1 each or less) but if I had to do it over again I would probably go with a drop-in system. I took dish liquid and a Tupperware container to wash them at the hotel. Do you want any travel size dapple dish? I had to buy a case and still have a ton left. Also I have the pea pod travel bed which I love. Have a great trip and call or email me if you need anything I might have.

  3. Oh and in your carry on pack a change of clothes for you as well as for Nora!
