Packing Baby Travel Kit

Packing Baby Travel Kit. Sure you can bring more than 3.4 ounces of formula, expressed breast milk, baby food, and medicines for your infant or toddler in your carry-on bag (see specifics here). But I recommend keeping a ready-to-go cabin-friendly baby travel kit in your diaper bag. It helps streamline your travels every time you leave the house together–especially when you’re airport bound and have enough other things to remember.

Remember, the 3-1-1 allowance is per passenger, so you can keep your own air travel kit in its own zip-top bag as well, or combine for simplicity if it all fits in one.

Here is a sample modified “travel kit” for your diaper bag, with some items you may like to have on board, especially for longer flights...

12 Don’t-Miss

In native language, the area known as Capitol Reef means “the land of the sleeping rainbow.”

There is probably no more accurate poetic reference than this colorful playground protected for the benefit of all who wish to walk amongst its beauty.

The colors of the massive domes, towering cliffs, twisting canyons, arches and bridges change with the light, moving from deep reds to pastel pinks, sunburnt orang...

Family Road Trip Safety Packing List (with Printable). It’s all too easy to assume our smartphones will help us out of any difficulty we may encounter on a Family Road Trip. But not only can those smart-when-they-work gadgets lose signal the moment you really begin to rely on that navigation–or need to call AAA, they have a hard time replacing that burnt headlight on a late night’s drive or keeping everyone well hydrated in an overheated car while you wait much longer than expected for roadside assistance.

Here is a quick list of what to make sure you have with you on the open road for your next family road trip–and a printable copy to keep in your glove box for future trips.

National Parks in Kenya

National Parks

National Parks in Kenya. A Kenya safari offers ultimate place and activity for a holiday of great adventure. However, it’s not easy to find a place to visit in Kenya. In this article, we will list some of the greatest National Parks in Kenya, the country with their specific and original sites and activities.

Masai Mara National Reserve

Probably the mostly densely big game populated reserve in Kenya, the Masai Mara is a haven for those wanting to spot the African ‘big five’ that is made up of lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo and leopard. However, there are also many other varieties of animals that inhabit this park that are more than worth of a mention, such as hippo, Masai and Rothschild’s giraffe, topi, warthog and white rhino.

Lives Beyond Vegas

Wowed at what lives Beyond Vegas Week 17: Keeping a commitment can be challenging, but there is one important reason why you should: If you don’t you lose confidence in yourself. If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?

How can you build confidence and competence if you continue to give yourself a back door?

It’s so easy to quit.

It’s so easy to say you’re too tired, or broke, or unhealthy, or time strapped, or whatever. It’s hard to show up each day and remain true to your word. But you will kill your success if you don’t.

Sure life can get in the way sometimes and things can’t be helped.

But always ask yourself before you let it get in the way

Is this really true? Am I 100% held back now? Or, am I just...

Hollywood Interesting

Hollywood, Interesting Things to Do in Los Angeles with Kids. LA is the second biggest city in the USA, and as a visitor it seems like there are endless things to do in Los Angeles with kids!

Over the years we’ve been able to visit Los Angeles several times. Firstly solo, then as a couple, and now with our two daughters, Kalyra and Savannah.

Hollywood 20 Fun and Interesting Things

To be honest we weren’t initially big fans, and it’s taken a while for LA to grow on us.

Sometimes you have to visit a place a second or third or even forth time before you can appreciate it.

I think it’s because we change so much with age and family makeup and what we look for in a destination. And destinations can evolve too.

Utah BLOWS Our Mind

Utah BLOWS Our Mind. Bring out every superlative on the planet and you still won’t do this state justice. It’s why we’ve chosen to spend at least 5 weeks in Utah!

I can’t get enough of the colors in God’s Art Studio. Not only that it’s full, and I mean, full of epic outdoor adventures and memory making opportunities.

Snow Canyon State Park

There’s Savannah and Kalyra yelling at me over the ATV engine as I screamed and drove up a steep sand dune,

“You’ve got this Mum!” ‘Show them what you’re made of!”

The girls racing to the Zion Visitor Center to get their Junior Rangers Program so they can start learning about the park.

Enthusiastically stating that this was by far the most fun ever when we climbed up and around the small waterfall to explore ...

Flying Alaska Airlines with a Baby or Toddler

Need to Know: Flying Alaska Airlines with a Baby or Toddler. Will you be flying Alaska Airlines with a baby or toddler? As part of my “Need to Know” airlines series for parents flying with infants and young children, here are some important points to be aware of (and be prepared for) before your flight–and possibly booking.

Flying Alaska Airlines with an infant on your lap?

If you plan to fly Alaska Airlines with a lap-held baby or “lap child,” be aware they make no luggage allowance for unticketed passengers (no matter how cute they may be). That means your diaper bag will count toward your own carry-on bag allowance, or at least toward one of the ticketed passengers in your party.

The only exceptions are car seats and strollers as ...
