As part of my personal evolution as a travel blogger, this is an early post from Upgrd.com where I joined Matthew and other talented writers (including my husband) which would then merge with Travel Codex, another Boarding Area blog. Finally, we found our home here at Live and Let’s Fly with Matthew. As this is an early post, references have not been updated and may no longer remain accurate. Please enjoy this time capsule blog post.
“What is the best way to tote along baby during your travels?”
“What about the stroller? Should we check it at the counter, gate check it or leave it behind?”
- Baby wrap – A baby wrap is a long piece of material you wrap around your body in different ways so that it will hold your baby close to your body. Wraps are popular because they are lightweight and comfortable, provide a “hands-free” way of carrying your baby, and provide a closeness with your little one.
- Baby strap – A baby strap, or carrier, looks a lot like a backpack worn on the front or back of your body and made to fit a baby. Like wraps, carriers also provide a closeness with your baby, and give you the freedom of being “hands free”, but the quality of a carrier is imperative as some have been known to cause neck and back pain.
- Stroller– A stroller (for our purposes) is a wheeled device that you place your baby into, secure with a safety strap and then have the ability to push around. There are many types of strollers with different features and functionalities (also called a pram).
