Traveling with a Newborn? Springtime is coming! For most families, this means travel. And if you have a newborn in tow, this can sometimes be a lengthier (and difficult) process. I’m often reminded of the trips we took with my son while he was a newborn. It isn’t easy, but here are a few things I learned along the way through some trial and error.
When preparing for long distance travel destinations, consider these tips that I used, for those long trips in the car…
1. Plan Extra Time for Feedings I exclusively breastfed my son, but this applies to everything – breast, bottle, or tube. You must allow a certain amount of time for feedings. [...]
We are HUGE Disney fans in our house! I grew up 20 minutes away from Disneyland, so needless to say, Disney was a big part of my childhood. So many of my memories as a little girl involve Disney, and some of my absolute favorite photos of myself were taken at Disneyland. Now that I have children of my own, I want them to experience Disney for themselves, and I hope they will grow to love it just as much as their mama!
We took our oldest, Noah, to Disney World for the first time last summer right before he turned 3. We visited in late August, which made it a great time to visit with relatively low crowds. Most people would say to avoid traveling to Disney World in [...]

Last summer my husband received orders to transfer from the Coast Guard station in Elizabeth City, North Carolina to Kodiak, Alaska. To get from North Carolina to our new home in Alaska, we embarked on a 12-day road trip with our 6-month old daughter and our yellow lab. Traveling anywhere with a baby can be stressful, even if you’re just driving to the grocery store. Road trips with baby have the potential to be traumatizing. [...]

Disney World is such a magical place, especially for toddlers. A trip to Disney World can be exciting, exhausting, and overwhelming as a family with a toddler. But, can you imagine taking a trip alone with your toddler?
The first time I tried, I was nearly in tears! I was trying to make the best use of our annual passes at the time, so I decided to take a trip to Disney World with my toddler when my husband was gone for a few days. The difference was that I was rolling all of the emotions, expectations, and responsibilities onto myself. No one would be there to rescue me when I was too tired to move or if my toddler decided to have a meltdown.

I cannot stand jet lag – it seems such a waste of time and energy.
I am currently in the throes of jet lag and can’t wait for it to end so that I can begin to think and act like a normal adult and not a hangry toddler.
I used to think that jet lag was all in the mind and something you could just snap out of or just distract yourself from, but it turns out I am wrong. There are a whole bunch of biological factors that contribute to jet lag with your brain being in control of the discomfort you experience.
Below is a set of facts that I have sourced from all over the place which give a good understanding of where jet lag stems from and what it [...]
