the lazy girl’s guide to traveling with a baby // 0-12 months

I promise not to bore you with all the mom cliches, but earlier this year, my little lazy baby turned one. I can’t believe how quickly a year went, so much has happened, etc., etc. Instead, I’ll bore you with something else! Unsolicited advice about something I’m now mildly familiar with, and as such, am an expert. There’s a whole chapter about it in the manual they give you at new parent orientation. Today’s topic? Margot’s first flight was when she was just over seven weeks old. Since then, she’s been across the Atlantic on four roundtrip flights, visited nine countries, and traversed over a dozen cities. We’ve taken her on trains and planes and road trips, and have a line-up of adventures…

a perfect day in firenze

If you follow us on Instagram and/or Snapchat, then you know one thing to be true: lazy baby‘s entry into the world may have put our travel days on pause this winter, but we’ve certainly been making up for lost time. After her first trip to Cannes in March, we reset the clock and started counting down to our next adventure: a week-long visit with my parents, featuring a mini hop to Italy for three beautiful days in Tuscany. But while Chianti was our real destination, we couldn’t take these two first-timers to Italy without a quick stint in Florence! Like our last trip to Chianti, we flew into Pisa and picked up a rental…

#lazybaby on the go with @LittlePeanutOTG

Like all first-time parents, I spent the week leading up to our first trip with Margot wondering how the hell we were going to function in France without every single thing we’ve gotten used to having on hand for her at home. I’d wake in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, shaking over what we would do without our changing table and nappy bin and bassinet and boppy and THIS SERENITY STAR?! I kid. Mostly. That Serenity Star is awesome. Luckily, Le Majestic made our lives generally easier, but unfortunately, once the hubs’s conference started, we relocated halfway through the week to a hotel that did pretty much the complete opposite. That’s…

We made it! We took our 8 week old on a plane, flew to another country, spent a week on the French Riviera, and here we are: back on the other side. Older, wiser, and a little more confident as parents. I have plenty to share about the logistics of our first trip as a family of three, but first! I must sing the praises of the Hôtel Barrière Le Majestic.

She slept the entire flight, and I learned…

travel announcement! #lazybaby’s first adventure…

I realized yesterday that I haven’t been on a plane since the end of November, and I haven’t left London since the first week of December. Parenting DOES change you, it turns out. This is the longest stretch of time I haven’t traveled since… I don’t even know! Luckily, as of Saturday, that is all about to change. We’re getting out of our little London bubble, and heading off to celebrate two big birthdays next week: Margot’s 2nd month, and my 360th. In case your mom-math isn’t so great… 30, here I come! Cannes you guess where we’re heading?! OUI, Margot’s first visit to the continent will, appropriately, take her to France, and more specifically,…
