Editorial Reviews

Review

Travels with Baby is an indispensable guide for parents wandering the world with kids, from infants to preschoolers. Its comprehensive advice on useful gear and different modes of transportation (car, taxi, train, plane, ship) will smooth the way on any trip, and I especially liked the insightful advice on matching your travel plans to your child's individual temperament. --Cynthia Harriman, author of Take Your Kids to Europe

...what differentiates Rivoli's book are the extra details, like comparison charts of different airlines and cruise lines. --Oakland Tribune

This guide is chock full of useful tips for traveling with babies and toddlers, what gear to bring (including specifics about car seats and a travel kit for carry-on), childproofing your accommodations, healthy travels, managing baggage on trains, and more. --Travel for Kids

We were only interested in the infant sections but the book has thorough sections on toddlers and older children.
Deborah Fischer
They're planning their first trip to Europe, and this is going to be a great help for them, I think.

This is a must have book for everyone that has a baby or a toddler and intends to travel with it. It is full of extremely helpful information that will make your journey easier and cheaper. I have a 5 year old and we have been traveling with her a lot abroad during the last 3 years and I deeply regret that this book was not available at those travels to ease my trip planning and organizing. It will definitely reduce the expenses for my next trip substantially - with the information on rail tickets in Europe and the cruise lines. Not to mention all the helpful hints in all the nesessary things to pack for your child, which you alway forget to.
The book is also very easy to read with lots of humor and nice photos.
I aintend to give it to some of my friends as a present too.

A great resource for families who love to travel-- whether it is to the next town over or across the globe. The author has great checklists, comparison charts, travel tips, ideas for gear & helpful websites. She throws in funny & touching stories (& pictures!) of her own family's travel adventures.

I work with new moms & read MANY of the baby books-- this one is DEFINITELY a keeper! It answers pretty much every question a traveling family might have (or points you in the direction of someone who can).

Format: Paperback
I picked up this book since we have both a preschooler and a newborn and are planning two overseas trips in the coming year, and I have to say Rivoli is riveting! Replete with practical tips, the book also reads as a sharp travelogue and a bit of escapist literature for this blurry-eyed mom. The best aspect of this book is that it encourages parents of small children to pack their bags AND their babes and get traveling, whether to a nearby state park or 'round the world. While an unabashed travel enthusiast, Rivoli also devotes a considerable amount of the book to safety tips and precautions, and I greatly appreciated her practiced and measured tone throughout the book in discussing such considerations. It is an excellent resource and refresher for our family as we were able to do a fair number of fun trips with our older child but felt we needed expert guidance on planning a trip that included our new addition.

I am about to travel to Europe for 2 weeks (cruise for part of the time) with my 7 month old and I found this book to be very useful. It had ideas that I would not have considered and I am now much less stressed about the trip. It seems very realistic about what to expect and what to pack and she also does not ignore the fact that no matter how prepared you are going to be, things will still not go as planned and you must be flexible. She gives great tips for these types of situations. Would recommend to anyone about to travel with baby and/or toddlers. Very easy read and easy to reference when necessary.

Format: Paperback
I was given this book as a gift. I didn't think I would get much out of it because frankly, I'm a bit of a homebody--didn't love to travel before kids and certainly don't love it more now that I have two.

But we do *have* to travel several times a year to see family and "Travels With Baby", because it is so thorough, has helped make a few recent trips run more smoothly. The author is so enthusiastic and understanding of the nitty gritty of little kids' routines--I feel like I can leave home now and not get the kids too messed up from their all-important routines.

This book has actually made me excited to go to a kid-friendly resort some time in the near future. Rivoli covers the details--vaccinations, passports, etc., in such detail that there is no guess work for me. I really appreciate that.

Format: Paperback
This book has some great suggestions for different types of travel (overseas, on a cruise ship, camping, etc) with recommendations for the type of travel that is best for different ages.

I found several products recommendations very helpful, and saved myself from disaster by reading about the documentation my baby will need when we go to Peru without my husband. Other gems were about airline fares for babies and how they vary by carrier.

She doesn't mention the Ergo baby carrier, which I would vote as the best because of its front, back or side options. The number of suggestions that I do pass along to friends that are taken from this book speak to its strengths.

Ok I know the title of the book is Travels with Baby, but it also says toddlers, and children. And truly did not tell me anything I didn't already know. Now if you are a first time mom, who has never traveled with a baby up to age 2, then sure its probably very helpful, especially if you have never had any advice from anyone else. Though it was how ever informational on, how to obtain passports, now that we (the) parents are no longer together, what you need to do. It also had lists of contact info on where to rent baby/ child items, like strollers, carseats, for traveling where you dont want to bring all that stuff, which can be rather helpful, so I give it 3 stars, for being semi-helpful!

We love to travel and travelled often before we had kids. We would like to continue to travel, but are hesitant with infant twins. I bought this book to try and give us ideas on travelling with babies. It really does have some great advice. In fact, we have our first trip planned in a couple months thanks to this book.
