Do you know why babies really cry on planes?

Do you know what sends toddlers to hospitals while on vacation?

Do you know how to get twins to sleep in a tiny hotel room?

Believe it or not, infants used to be stowed in the overhead compartments on airplanes. Now, you just need a handful of things to successfully travel with a baby or toddler (even twins), and one of them is duct tape. Combining tested guerrilla tactics with scholarly research, Items May Have Shifted: How to Travel With Your Baby or Toddler offers guidance on everything from altitude sickness to zoological hazards for the under 5 set.

This guide will help you

  • Develop goodwill on an airplane with a crying baby
  • Use the B STUPID packing list
  • Get a picky toddler to eat unidentifiable food
  • Unpack your emotional baggage
  • Childproof a hotel room with no equipment
  • Decide when to whine and when to wine

Chapters include: Packing and Hacking, Flying, Accommodation, Eating on the Go, Health and Safety, and more. Items May Have Shifted: How to Travel With Your Baby or Toddler also offers links to additional resources for readers.

How is this book different from other “travel with baby” guides?

  • MacGyver approach to common sense (you would be surprised what you can do with a shoelace, duct tape, pipe cleaners, and a sock)
  • Doing the maximum with the minimum supplies
  • Supported by scholarly research, including medical journals

So don't throw out your passport when you have a baby! You can travel with them without losing your mind or your moxie!
