I'm glad I finally have somewhere to ask this without bothering non-baby boards. Please share anecdotes of traveling with your child.
Can you give me realistic expectations of traveling with a child? I know it's supposed to be easier before they are mobile, but can you give me an idea of what it entails?
We love to travel and are really enjoying being able to take advantage of the ability to cheaply explore our current location in the world. We leave the country on average about once or twice a month. Neither of us want that to change that, but I'm starting to wonder if maybe I'm not lying to myself about what traveling with a kid actually entails. I've got a picture in my head of just throwing a kid in a carrier and just going.
Also (and I'm looking at you for this Wordsmith), is taking a small child on a 24+ hour day of traveling as miserable for the parent as I'm thinking it might be? Does it make a difference if the kid has its own seat?
