If you have any reservations about flying with your little one, this site is the best to go to for all things flying with baby. This site is committed to making flying as painless as possible. Considering the owner of the site, Carrie, was a flight attendant for over 12 years, we are certain that we are getting the best advice. Flyingwithababy.com has advice before you book, before you fly, during the flight and arrival. There is also a lot of extra information for families who have children with special needs. We also like that their is product reviews (what is the best stroller for travel?) for parents to make informed choices. This is the bio of Flyingwithababy.com:
My Bio
 
I’m an ex flight attendant and primary teacher.  Now a mummy to a very well traveled toddler,  whose first flight was when I was pregnant and she completed  over 17 flights short, medium and long haul before she was 1.  We have  a new baby due in October, who I can’t wait to take traveling with us… I’m wife to an Australian ( I think those trips count as ultra long haul!) and we own a lovely black labrador..

 I couldn’t find any quick reference guide to everything about flying with a baby,  with all the answers I required in one place, to make ANY flight as painless & easy as possible. So Flying With A  baby was born.  I knew many things from working on  flights which have helped us travel  & others greatly, but some practicalities you learn as parent along the way & earn your badge, or in this case wings. My information is based on personal experience & research to help you. Happy Flying!  www.flyingwithababy.com
Blogger of The Month:Mrs. ATWWAH

Mrs. ATWWAH and her family are jet setters! From Mexico to the UAE, this family is on the move. This blog is not only about the far off exotic places, but the fun day trips as well! The blog also has hotel reviews, a kids zone for apps, books, games and toys and festivals! This personal approach to world travel with your toddler is a fantastic read for those dreaming of those exotic destinations to families who want to give it a try!
A little about Mrs. ATWWAH:

Aroundtheworldwithahighchair follows London based Mrs ATWWAH and her family of three (soon to be four) on their travels.  The idea for the blog came about after a holiday to France where Master ATWWAH’s highchair literally went along too and they realised having children can make you do things that are fairly crazy.  No matter how easygoing a parent you are, or think you are, taking a child on holiday can bring out the slightly bonkers in anyone.

So, the blog was conceived and shares tales and tips of family travel as well as reassuring people that no matter what they have packed for a family holiday someone else has probably gone one better.

As well as writing the blog, which recently won Best Individual Travel Blog in the UK National Blog Awards, Mrs ATWWAH writes for familytraveller.com and is always looking for opportunities to write about family travel.  The day job is in marketing and Mrs ATWWAH has worked on entertainment and travel brands including Merlin Entertainments, ODEON cinemas and UKTV.

A little about Danielle:

I am a wife and stay at home mom to a beautiful one year old girl named Annabelle.  I love spending time with friends and family, as well as doing anything crafty.

 

As a first time mom, after having Annabelle I had lots of questions.  While I could always ask my mom or mother  in-law, I didn’t think they would appreciate a 5am call.  As I searched the internet for tips and ideas I came across a few mom blogs (Little Baby Garvin, House of Rose and The Busy Budgeting Mama).  Not only did they give me wonderful ideas, but they also made me laugh.  I found myself checking them for updates and just enjoying reading what they post.  These blogs inspired me to start my blog, Sundaes and Spaghetti.  I figured it would be a good way to keep family up to date on what was going on with us, and it was a good way for me to get my ideas and feelings out there.  Later when Annabelle was diagnosed with brachycephaly and had to wear a helmet, I decided to blog about her journey.   My hope is that that will help others going through similar situations.  Now I try to include recipes, DIY projects and other tips that moms can use to make their lives easier.

 

As I mentioned earlier, I am a crafter.  This led me to create a diaper clutch/changing pad.  I hated having a changing pad and diapers all mixed up in my diaper bag.  After looking at the changing pad I figured why not make a clutch that folds out to use as a changing pad.  After a few trials I completed one I was happy with.  I posted a picture on Facebook, and a few people said that I should sell them.  I thought about it a bit, and decided to open up my Etsy store Althready Sew Sweet.  I searched Etsy for diaper clutches/changing pads, and while there were quite a few I didn’t see many like mine.  A lot of them seemed to be kind of expensive as well.   I wanted my shop to be affordable so I try to keep my prices low  After opening my store I added tutu’s, and diaper bags to sell.  I will soon be adding highchair tutus to use for birthdays.
