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!
