Travel with Me and Baby | London | Part One

Travel with Me and Baby | London | Part One, London, England (B)

Well, we did it! This October we took the risk, packed up our bags, and made our way across the Atlantic Ocean to the UK – with our 18-month-old. I have always wanted to travel with our children during all life stages, and while we have done a bit of domestic travel with Carson, this was our first international trip as a family of three. So today I’m sharing our trip with you including all of the toddler-friendly things we did while there. I hope it can be used as a guide for others planning trips to London with littles.

Of course we had some hard moments on this trip. For example, Carson did NOT want to sit still during our nice Sunday roast and, on another day, he refused to eat his children’s afternoon tea that we ordered as a special treat for him. But we didn’t have any major tantrums at all, and his sleep (which I was worried about the most of all) was essentially unaffected by the time change.

London is one of the most baby-friendly places I’ve ever been to. There are changing tables in the women’s AND men’s restrooms everywhere, nearly all restaurants we went to had high chairs and kids menus, coffee shops often had toy nooks for kids, public transit nearly always had a spot to park the stroller, etc. It was a wonderful family trip, and I cannot recommend London enough as a place to take small children. ......
