Travelin' with Baby Giveaway Hop!


As promised, GreenPath Baby blog is participating in the Travelin' with Baby Giveaway Hop hosted by So Easy Being Green and According to Jenny!  Our giveaway this month is sponsored by the GreenPath Baby Cloth Diapering Store!  This Event will run from October 10th - 24th with a Twitter Party Grand Finale on October 25th from 9-10 PM EST!  In this Hop, each blogger has a great prize, worth at least $25, to make traveling with your baby easy and fun! Don’t miss out on the fabulous Grand Prize worth over $500 featuring the best, must-have Baby Travel Products!  I have recently traveled with baby, and one of the things I really used besides my Baby K'tan was my CJ's BUTTer spray to keep baby rash free throughout the trip.  The spray contains Coconut oil, which for a baby that has eczema is a wonderful solution to keep his skin moisturized as well.  We are giving away a Baby Travel Pack that includes a Baberoo Minky Necksaver (to keep baby's head well positioned on those long car or plane trips), as well as a CJ's BUTTer Spritz Lavender and Tea Tree Oil Scent, A Hemp Babies Raw Silk cloth diaper liner, and three 100% 30x30 Organic Cotton burp cloths.

  1. We have only traveled to the beach and some local places. I always have a special backpack for the kids, they only get the backpack when we travel. It is filled with new crayons/coloring books, a new toy, some favorite smaller toys, a reading book or two, and some fun music CDs.

  2. I have learned to always have something ready for them to do! And also that being hands free with a baby in tow is much easier! Wear your baby and you will both be happier!

  3. We drove to California from Arizona with a 3 month old. at first it was fine but toward the end of the drive baby Loki had had enough! We should have taken more breaks.

  5. baby is easy to travel with since she is still growing in my tummy :) Babe is due dec 3rd, so hopefully she sleeps during our christmas travels!

  6. Only in the car with my newborn - it's rough. My only tip is to bring extra pacifiers - you never know when one is going to hit the floor.

  7. I traveled with my newborn from East Texas to southern Floriday (18 hour drive!) Since we cloth diaper and exclusively breastfeed, there were a lot of stops. My only suggestion would be to keep a positive outlook and know that it won't go on forever.

  8. I have not traveled with my baby yet, so all these tips are useful to me!

  9. Several times.... Pack lots of snacks and books.

  10. I have traveled with babies - pack some new toys and bring them out one at a time, also bring along some CD's with stories or songs on them. For babies I strung a rope across the back and hung things on it. terri.moore30@yahoo.com

  11. We drove 12 hours with my daughter when she was 1--we headed out as early as we could so she would sleep the entire ride.

    ReplyDelete
  12. We play "store" while driving long distances. The kids earn "money" for good behavior and then they can purchace stuff from mommy's "store"

    ReplyDelete
  13. Frequent breaks and some snacks help a lot!

  14. I have traveled and I think having lots of patience is key and going with the flow. Careful preparation and being organized helps as well!

  15. My experiences have been everything from smooth to awful lol! As long as I remember to pack the night before and bring extra snacks and a few toys they don't get very often, it usually goes well :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have only traveled with my little nephew, and that to the mall! I remember wishing the stroller was lighter to pack up more quickly into the car.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Also, I tried to subscribe to the newsletter as well as the blog but don't see how to do both.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Bring lots of snacks and and small toys/activities :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. we have done several car trips (about 8 hours) and they have gone pretty well. we need to make sure we have my sons favorite music, snacks and toys. we have not tried flying yet but are talking about it!

    ReplyDelete
  20. We've traveled to two different states with our baby and unfortunately, it did not go well. He HATES the carseat and cried a lot :(

    ReplyDelete
  21. Short distances under 3 hours and once by airplane. Have lots of snacks and on the airplane pack a few new fun small toys to bring out when a meltdown starts or to pass the time!

    ReplyDelete
  22. my duaghter was wonderful on our road trip we drove from massachusetts to florida. it was all her doing just after her first birthday. we just kept her dry and fed and she was happy

    ReplyDelete
  23. Only short trips of under 2 hours. I made sure to have lots of snacks, and a couple small toys.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It is best to leave after a feeding and before bedtime

    ReplyDelete
  25. We haven't traveled more than 3 hours with my little one. My best tip is to leave right after a feeding. Toys (or even a recees pieces box) work well to distract my daughter. We're flying in January, though, so more tips are great!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haven't travelled yet for long distances with my daughter. But when we do go on a long car ride I do remember to bring her favorite doll and sit in the back with her while my husband drives.

  27. I traveled with my son in an airplane when he was about a year and also at almost 2. I made sure to bring lots of snacks and some new toys/books. I also make sure to bring his 2 favorite monkey stuffies! A carrier (we used a Boba) was also a lifesaver to help carry him and still have 2 free hands and to help him sleep.

  28. I've never traveled with my 6 month old but I'm about to try. Hope it goes well.

  29. Here is the link to our most recent travel excursion with a 5 and 6 year old. http://wethinkpink365.blogspot.com/2012/07/are-we-there-yet.html

  30. I've only taken my oldest daughter to family visits. We haven't traveled with my 2 month old yet. It will be interesting traveling with 2 under 2 come Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I travelled with my first son when he was 6 months old and we flew at night so it was a lot less stressful.

    ReplyDelete
  32. My son was 3 months old when we did a 2,500 mile drive trip and it was super hard. We did it again at 7 months old going the other direction. Definitely having things to keep him busy helped.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I travel with my baby, fairly often. My best tip is to bring more diapers and wipes than you think you need, plus a change of clothes in case of accidents.

  35. I love my iPad for travel! We travel 5 and 6 hours quite frequently to see family!

    ReplyDelete
  36. We have never gone very far. But no matter where we go I over pack

    ReplyDelete
  37. We did an RV trip with my parents. We brought the Fischer Price collapsable infant to toddler rocking chair for naps in my parents bedroom.

    ReplyDelete
  38. i haven't traveled far.. i do always try to keep water, snacks, toys & music around for longer car rides though!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I traveled with my 2 month old and it went pretty well. Make sure you don't have a time limit on when to get to your destination so no one is stressed about the numerous stops you'll need to make! And have a car seat cover

    ReplyDelete
  40. Our oldest who is now 6 throw up down my shirt on his first airplane ride when he was 18 months. Bring a change of clothes for mom too

    ReplyDelete
  41. A change of clothes and lot of toys and snacks. Give only one toy at a time so that they don't get bored later.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Get to your destination before their fussy time of evening if they have one, and so they can run around before bed.

  43. my son threw up on me on a plane and i was traveling alone with him

    ReplyDelete
  44. If you have a long drive, drive at night while baby is sleeping :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. yeah, I am pregnant with #7 so I have been traveling with kids for years. THe biggest thing is to leave your schedule open. Don't try to plan everything. Let things unfold as you go so it stays stress free

    ReplyDelete
  46. yes and they were twin one was day one night and then i had to keep the kid occupied while driving got the dvd thing and then gave them stuff for there hands to keep them occupied

    ReplyDelete
  47. I've flown a few times with my daughter who is now 15 months old. It's much easier when they're tiny and sleep the whole time. It's tough to keep a busy toddler in one spot on a 3 hour flight!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I've traveled several times with little ones. The worst is the bus! The second worst is the train. My biggest tip is either drive yourself or fly!

    ReplyDelete
  49. We took a couple road trips with my daughter and it was not very pleasant for any of us! So I am still trying to figure out how to make it a better experience!

    ReplyDelete
  50. last month I took my 4,2, and 2 month old from Tennessee to Florida to visit my sister. We drove through the night so the kids would sleep all the way. It was a good theory, but they did not sleep nearly as much as I had hoped they would. On the way home we planned to drive all day and get home around 10. we ended up getting home at about 5AM. the kids did sleep most of the way home. we wore them out in FL! my tip, don't try to do it alone! My mom came with me to help with the kids, and I do not think I could have done it without her.

  51. just don't be in any hurry. be flexible

    ReplyDelete
  52. We've traveled all over the world with our kids. My best tip is to bribe with food. =)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I haven't, but she's not here yet. :)

    But pregnant, I have travelled, and I recommend putting something under your feet to elevate your legs a little. It helps reduce the swelling :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. We have traveled internationally with my son from 9 months. It takes planning and packing of food, clothes, diapers and a baby carrier.

    ReplyDelete
  55. i have traveled lots with my daughter. No matter what we bring a stroller. Even when I wear her, the stroller holds our stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I haven never traveled with kids. No advice from me;-)

    ReplyDelete
  57. The longest I traveled was 3 hours it was okay but make sure to take a lot of different things to keep them entertained

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have traveled to the kid’s park and always had a special backpack for the kids. It kept my kid happy.
