Welcome to the Baby Flyer Blog! Travel has been a part of our lives for a long time, both out of a sense of adventure, as well as practicality. We have family, friends, and interests across the country, and think it is also important to see other parts of the world. As a couple, we found ourselves flying frequently around the country, and regularly making international trips as well. Travel, miles, points, and airline status were a part of our lives, and as a result, we’ve had many unforgettable experiences. When we told people we were expecting our first child, many people winked, and implied our traveling days were over.
We knew this wouldn’t be the case.
Since having ‘Baby Flyer’ earlier this year, we’ve continued to travel. Our little one has spent her fair share of time in airports and on planes. Travelling as a family has changed our approach to some trips, but we’ve enjoyed the journey, and so has Baby Flyer. She’s been on more than 20 flights in her first 9 months, and in that time, we’ve learned a lot about travel with babies. Even more, we’ve been asked many, many times for advice from our friends and acquaintances who find themselves planning their first, second, or even third, trips as new parents.
This is where the idea for the Baby Flyer Blog was ‘born.’ We know that travel with babies and small children can be stressful, but much of this anxiety comes from not knowing what to expect, or what the potential pitfalls are in navigating the world of airports, airlines, and hotels as a new family.
However, it doesn’t have to be stressful. Planned well, family travel can be fun and rewarding. Its been an amazing experience to share our passion for travel with Baby Flyer, and we want to help others do the same!
