That time of year is quickly approaching. Maybe it fills you with joy or dread, but one thing is for sure, it is never easy! Yes, that’s right, the season of traveling in order to celebrate the holiday season with loved ones. Whether by car or plane, near or far, traveling with a baby is always an interesting and often times harrowing experience.

Welcome to the Travelin’ With Baby Giveaway Hop Event, hosted by So Easy Being Green and According to Jenny! This Event will run from October 10th – 24th with a Twitter Party Grand Finale on October 25th from 9-10 PM EST! 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 TWO Grand Prizes worth over $550 EACH – featuring the best, must-have Baby Travel Products – including a Britax Car Seat, QuickSmart Backpack Stroller, Beco Baby Carrier and MUCH more!

I actually do not plan on going far this year since much of our family only lives an hour or two away. However, that does not mean sitting in my cozy living room and avoiding the world this holiday season. There are gifts to buy, cookies to bake, and events to attend! Living in the land of 10,000 malls (or is it lakes?) I will be dealing with my fair share of crowds and rushing. One thing that is essential for crowded shopping with two kids is a way to transport them. Have your ever tried pushing a double stroller through the Mall of America near Christmas, or through the airport on Thanksgiving, or even Ikea any day? It is nearly impossible. A great baby carrier is a must!

Just Add Cloth is giving away an awesome Baby K’Tan Baby Carrier in the winner’s choice of size and color. Baby K’Tan is like a wrap without the wrapping! it is easily the simplest and most versatile carrier I have used and I absolutely love it.

  1. Bring plenty of snacks and extra sippy cups 🙂

  2. As hard as it is the very best thing you can do while traveling is to stay relaxed and Pass off baby duty between you and hubby (if possible) as much as possible.

  3. Take the iPad with movies downloaded onto it!

  4. bring extras of everything!

  5. To go with the flow. You never know how a child is going to react, so be open to everything going wrong and you won’t be surprised and it won’t ruin your trip


  6. If you cloth diaper I highly recommend disposable bamboo liners (we used rearz) they make cleaning up poopy messes on the go soooo much easier.

  60. Well the only tip i have is to have a pacifier with you.. It always worked wonders for me.

  61. […] *Baby K’Tan Carrier from Just Add Cloth (ends 10/24) RC […]

  62. I haven’t had to do any traveling, but I’ve heard to try to travel when baby is sleeping. But if you must travel while they’re awake to bring one new toy for each hour in the car/plane/etc. 🙂

  66. My best tip for traveling with a baby is, if you’re going on a long trip, try to time it to when your baby naps/sleeps. We once made an 8 hour trip to visit family and we made the drive at night so both our kids slept the entire way!

  67. If you plan for the unexpected, you’ll always be prepared.

  68. I always travel with a carrier and extra patience.

    When my girls were small we didn’t really have carriers and things like that {you should google the images of the carseats! lol} but I would think that would make traveling tons easier.
    We didn’t travel much but if I’d have nursed that would have made going anywhere just easier! {my daughter, who is smarter than I was, is nursing and is realizing this}
    Thanks for the giveaway.
