Travel to Australia with a baby

We often have moms traveling to Australia with an infant that are very nervous about the long trip with such a little one. Who wouldn't be nervous. I was nervous on a two-hour plane trip with my baby, wondering what I would do if they screamed the entire trip. I've never flown internationally with my children, so unfortunately, I'm not much help in this area.

However, I've located a website from a seasoned traveled Mom who knows all about flying to Australia with a baby and she has a great resources on her website. The website is Lucy Loves Australia and her story is called "Lots more info on flying to Australia with babies and toddlers". It contains great information and even some tips on dealing with the jet lag. If you are planning any long trip with your babies, it's well worth the read!

Also, we get many calls on whether you can ship food and formula to Australia. The answer is YES. It's a bit tricky because there are some special documents that are required by the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service and there is a weight limit on the amount you can ship ahead into the country, but we have done it successfully many times.

So relax moms, and go ahead and keep planning that trip of a lifetime!!! It can be done.
