Traveling Alone With Baby
One of the most common questions new moms have is how they will manage to travel alone with their baby. It sounds daunting, but it doesn’t have to be!

One great idea is to bring a friend with you who wants to travel too they’ll be there to help you out with your baby while you’re both exploring the area.
The same thing applies if you don’t know anyone who wants to go on vacation with you. This can be simple if you are traveling within close range of friends or family members, but if not, consider hiring a local sitter. A local sitter will likely be cheaper than an agency or service, which means more money for your actual vacation!
