"...I am going to be in Indonesia and Thailand in January with my toddler who is almost two years old. I've been to Indonesia 4 times, but it's a whole new world of travel with my babe. I am trying to figure out what size stroller to take, and any other tips on travelling with a baby would be very helpful..."

"...We're a kiwi family with well travelled kids aged 8 & 11. In May 06, we are going to spend a couple of weeks eurailing in Europe before heading off to the UK for a wedding. Can anyone recommend reasonable moderately priced family accomodation in Munich, Vienna & Paris. We would also like to have a few days in a French village in maybe Provence or Bordeaux though we are open to almost anything at this stage. Any ideas/hints/best places to stay/vacation spots/vacation packages,etc would be appreciated..."
"...I am planning a vacation with a 9 months old and a 2 y. old, and looking for a nice toddler-friendly place with following features ( if possible)
Beach with calm, quite waters. All inclusive hotel, if possible. Relatively close to civilization ( = grosery stores w/ diapers + baby food!).
Good snorkeiling nearby ( this is for us!). Can somebody make a suggestion ? Thank you.."
We like traveling with our children, and wish the same to you. Well, it can be if you follow a few tips to help you
enjoy getting there as much as being there. Children, even little ones, learn there's something beyond their own homes and families. The practicalities may change as the children grow.
But the memories made during any trip will remain long after the vacation is over.
Good planning means the difference between a
fabulous vacation and a family feud on wheels. The Internet makes it easy to
research destinations and hotels, read travelers' reviews and download
checklists and safety strategies. Family-focused
are also helpful. We have taken our kids
and are taking them again in 4 weeks. Safe and nice beach. We have also taken them on
a Carnival cruise and 2 Disney
and they are only 3 and 6. They love the beach in Playa del Carmen, they had fun
in Grand Cayman
the beach and water in Nassau Bahamas
waters were a little rough.......have fun!

your baby will need
away from home, to any travel destinations worldwide
. You can

home. For a small convenience charge Babies

favorite baby supplies.
3. Get travel assistance insurance
But review carefully
as there are different levels of coverage. We are usually well-prepared when we travel,
but whilst most of us take out insurance before we travel, many of us don't read
the policy- so we may not know what our cover is until it is too late.
Insurance will ensure the child is cared
for should parent be hospitalized. Coverage should include ability to fly home if treatment
is needed in the US by the patient. We recommend you
consumer-oriented online travel insurance aggregator
. You can make it easy for
travel insurance for any type of journey
. They provide travel insurance
policies from Access America, CSA Travel Protection, Global Underwriters, HTH Worldwide,
International Medical Group, M.H. Ross, Medex, MedjetAssist, MultiNational Underwriters,
RBC Travel Protection, Specialty Risk International, Travel Guard, Travel Insured,
Travelex and TravelSafe. All companies have 24 hour claim or assistance call centers.
You will have a great time, but be warned vacationing with
a toddler is definitely not a relaxing adult vacation.
4. Make a medical kit
A small medical kit containing medications for common
child illnesses is very helpful should children become ill when traveling. The kit should contain
medications for illnesses that children experience at home and for potential travel-related illnesses,
and it should contain the telephone numbers of all the childrenís health-care providers.
Choosing a destination where there is no ready way of
communicating with competent medical professionals adds an element of risk to the trip. Standards of health
care often differ from country to country, so contact your personal physician before any treatment
is undertaken. Your physician may be able to recommend what you have packed in medical kit to care
for your child.
5. Don't skip the snacks
|Family-time is Fun-time!:
Something for everyone from Mom & Dad to the teenagers & smaller kids,
that's what these family destinations have in store.

Food can entertain and educate, especially if you bring foods
relating to your destination. Besides, if you're traveling on a plane, you and
your young ones will likely need more nourishment than the airline provides.
Best bets: boxed juices and healthful, crumb-free snacks like
baby carrots, sliced turkey,
cheese, bagels and drinkable
yogurt. Avoid overly sugary and salty snacks.
The key to successful trips
especially with children
is to keep everyone entertained throughout the journey. Here are
some great travel games
which will help you pass the time whether you are travelling by road, air or sea.
7. Plan for adult time
True, you're here to spend time with the kids,
but it's your vacation as well. Keep yourself refreshed enough
to enjoy your family. At a resort, for example, hit the spa while the children
do arts and crafts at the kids' club. In a city, hire a sitter through the
hotel's concierge service, and go out to dinner while the youngsters sleep.
Include something for everyone. Some families spend a third of their vacation on
kids' preferences, a third on family choices and a third on adult interests.
However you divide your time, be sure to include everyone's desires. Relax some
rules. Youngsters respond differently to new foods, disruptions in sleep
patterns and jet lag. This is not the time to introduce new disciplinary
methods. Remember, the kids are on vacation, too. Your best
bet? Slow down. Get in tune with your children. Experience the
destination at their pace.
Itís a vacation remember! Do
less! For today's overscheduled kids, an entire
afternoon doing nothing but building a sand castle with their parents may be
their most cherished vacation memory. So make room for
downtime. Figure out what you want to see, then plan on doing
half of that. If at the end of your trip you want to return to see more, the
vacation has been successful.
Worry less and enjoy
more, your baby will too...
