Have Baby, Will Travel!

Baby on the Go
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9

We finally have our first official vacation as a family of 3 planned!  I think Leighton will just love the beach even though she is still so young (I can tell you she absolutely loves the water just from her bath each day though!)  With a new baby comes an entire caravan of things that you need to pack when traveling with a little one, so today I am going to share some of the things I plan on packing for our trip. 

Even though Leighton will only be 10 months old on the trip, we plan on using Audible audibooks during the 7 hour drive.  Audible has some great titles available including a great selection of children's books like Paddington, The Cat in the Hat and even Charlotte's Web.  I know she is too young to completely understand, but I still think she would love listening to them (while staring at the back of the seat in her carseat.)  I think it would definitely entertain her, and she would enjoy hearing the stories told by a professional narrator.  And with such a long drive, I would enjoy listening to some books myself since I get carsick if reading.  It is the perfect way to pass the time on our trip, and I think the older she gets, the more she will even enjoy it.  Right now you can even try Audible free for 30 days.  Make sure you check out the Coupons.com Audible coupons too.  What are your must haves when traveling with a baby?  How do you pass the time on road trips?

  2. Oh traveling with babies... Always a fun experience. We drove across the country with a 2.5 year old and a 7 month old. Best of luck on your travels. xo ~ Megan The Fashionista Momma
