Hi there! So, we're getting into the holiday season and I figure it might be good to have a place to share tips and ask for help. We are potentially traveling for the very first time with LO and I have so many questions! Anyone who is experienced with baby travel care to help out?
1. If you stay in a hotel, do all hotels have cribs? Or only some? Do they have standard crib mattresses, so that our sheets will fit fine? 2. Plane travel! If you're doing the lap baby thing - do you check your car seat? Or can it be a carryon? Can you have a carseat and a stroller as a carry on? If you're buying the baby a seat, do they sit in their carseats? Or if they're sitting up fine, can they just sit as normal in a seat with a seatbelt? 3. Car rental - do they ever come with car seat bases or do you have to bring a base? (or install a seat without a base - I hear this can be done, though I need to look into it more.)
Btw the whole thought of traveling with a baby is so intimidating to me! I'm not even worried about crying on the plane at this point - there's just so much gear!
