New Lower Prices!
Our travel guides were published in 2014-15. They are still great guides full of useful information for parents, but they need a little attention – updated URL’s, etc. We’ve dropped the price on our destination guides from $9.99 to $5.99 USD for a limited time until we publish a new edition. Enjoy!!
BE MORE PREPARED BY DOING LESS
Feeding, changing & doing laundry all take time out of your day; planning your trip doesn’t have to.
It’s 5pm, you’re frantically getting dinner ready while bouncing a tired and cranky baby on your hip. There’s a pile of laundry in the corner and a stack of Thank-You cards for baby gifts unwritten on the table. Your trip is right around the corner and you don’t have any energy at the end of the day to even think about doing any research.
We’ve been there! As soon as we knew our baby was healthy enough to go on a trip, we booked flights to Barcelona. Then we had to figure out how to travel with a baby, let alone where to stay and what to do.
When our newborn would grace us with sleep, we managed to sneak in some time for trip planning. It was difficult to get answers to specific questions; the answers online were conflicting and the pages were often outdated. What’s more is that newborns don’t sleep very long, so our planning was erratic and by the time we got back to the computer we no longer remembered which pages we had read. To top it off, there were many wonderful blogs about travelling to Barcelona or flying with a baby, but nothing that addressed both.
In the end, we did the best we could on our trip with the information we were able to pull together through traditional guide books and blog posts, but we still made many mistakes along the way… mistakes that could have been avoided.
We had so much we wanted to see, but we didn’t fully appreciate how much our baby would slow down our pace of travel. We didn’t know whether we should bring a stroller or baby carrier when sightseeing. We wanted to pack lightly and travel without a car seat, but weren’t sure if this was possible.
We wrote these travel guides with new parents, just like you (and us) in mind. New parents who want to keep travelling but are new to travelling with a baby. New parents who want to get the most out of their trip, but just don’t have the time to do all the research.
Our travel guides include everything you, as a new parent travelling with a baby need, nothing more and nothing less.
The Challenges of Travelling as a Parent
We LOVE travelling with our little ones, but we confess, it isn’t always easy. The truth is that with a baby, real life doesn’t go away simply because you are on vacation.
Your baby will still cry, randomly decide to nap or not, get new teeth and will spit up on your outfit seconds before leaving the hotel. You will need to carry more stuff and will have less time to see the sights. You’ll need to know whether or not you can bring a stroller with you each day and whether or not the restaurants have high chairs.
There’s a lot to know and a lot that can go sideways.
That Sounds Awful!
Wrong! Yes, you bring your family dynamic with you on the road, but travelling as a family is much more rewarding and fulfilling than you’ve ever known before.
Sharing new experiences with your baby is one of the most gratifying things a new parent can do. Travel is an incredible developmental activity which engages all of your baby’s senses. You can have an amazing trip and create memories that will last a lifetime – the key is being prepared.
Baby Can Travel Guides to the Rescue
Be prepared?!? I’d love to, but who has time?
We get it… with the lack of sleep and never-ending laundry, it’s hard to find the spare time to eat lunch, let alone spend hours online researching for your trip. That’s where we come in.
The Baby Can Travel guides were written with you in mind. They are not massive 500 page Lonely Planet guides – we only include the information you need to know as a new parent.

Props to @babycantravel for all of their help with our Paris leg of our journey. Their city travel guides include everything you might be wondering about sites (places to breastfeed, stroller accessibility, interest for baby, etc). They truly have thought of everything, even baby packing lists! And they are from Canmore! #babycantravel #paris

Je t’aime mon amour ? #6months #henryedward #heman #hankthetank #6months #thekinderchronicles #babycantravel #paris . Thank you to @babycantravel for the suggestions for visiting the Eiffel Tower with an infant! They recommended not bringing a stroller, and using a carrier instead. Probably the best advice ever after watching other parents wrestle with their strollers and kids since they must be folded up!

A week ago we took our babes alone on a Christmas trip to NYC! What a beautiful time of year to explore the city. Thanks to our @babycantravel guide to NYC we decided to take the staten island ferry and knew the perfect place to hang out to get the best view of lady liberty.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can’t I find this information online for free?
One of the reasons we wrote these guides was that we had difficulty finding information relevant to new parents. Yes, there is some basic information out there on a variety of blogs, but it is scattered, incomplete and hard to find. Baby Can Travel guides have all you need to know in one convenient place.
I know how to travel – why do I need your guide?
It’s not hard to get on a plane and take your baby somewhere – literally anyone can do it. But travelling with a baby is a lot more complicated – if you book the wrong flights, stay at the wrong hotel, or show up at an attraction with a stroller when none are allowed, it will negatively impact the quality of your trip. Being prepared is essential to making the most of your time. Our travel guides will prepare you for the trip, help you make good decisions and enable you to create lasting memories for your new family!
I have a baby – I don’t have time to read a travel guide.
Our travel guides will actually save you time – both before and during your trip. It contains all the information you need for your trip in one convenient place which saves you the time and effort of endlessly searching blogs for similar information. It is laid out in a logical order – from planning your trip, to surviving your travel days, to enjoying your destination. And it is also easy to navigate which allows you to quickly and easily read the sections which are of interest to you.
And even more importantly, during your trip you will be able to maximize the enjoyment of every single day by being prepared with all you need to know.
What makes you an expert on travelling with a baby?
We are veteran travellers and expert trip planners. Pre-children, we travelled to 34 countries together over 5 continents. Since having kids, we have travelled with our babies to 6 countries over 3 continents (and counting). We enjoy sharing our knowledge and experiences to help make travelling with infants easier, more accessible and enjoyable for other families.
My baby is already one year old – will this book help me?
Absolutely! Our books are written for parents with babies between 0 – 18 months of age. Babies are so different at each stage of development – we share all the essential information you need to know for each stage.
What’s the difference between the version on your site vs. Amazon?
The version available for sale on our web page is a full color version optimized for larger screens, such as a tablet or computer screen. If you have such a device, this version will be a more enjoyable read. If you’d prefer to read our books on an e-reader or phone, we recommend buying our books from a major retailer such as Amazon. The e-reader version will adjust automatically to the size of your screen, making it easy to read on all devices
