Product Details

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Lutz, a writing instructor at UC Berkeley and columnist for the Babyzone.com Web site, understands that many parents find traveling with their babies and toddlers a major hassle. Between the diapers, carriage, changes of clothing, toys and other paraphernalia, sometimes it's simpler to just stay home. A parent and inveterate traveler herself, Lutz shares her own experiences as she offer advice on different kinds of excursions, from plane trips to long car drives to strolls around the block. Some of her topics finding family-friendly hotels, choosing vacation spots can be found in other travel guides, but most of the book addresses specific baby-oriented issues like nursing on the road, eating out with infants and picky eaters, or taking kids to stadiums. A particularly useful chapter on work covers home offices, taking offspring on business trips, choosing child care and planning meetings around a baby's schedule. Lutz also includes a trouble-shooting section that covers a range of terrifying scenarios, from running out of baby wipes to traveling with the little one through malaria country. For first-time parents, this is a first-rate guide.

1.0 out of 5 stars Few Specifics Nov. 14 2003
On the Go with Baby contains many amusing anecdotes about Lutz's travels with her daughter. However, as someone who resides overseas, and has already traveled to Hong Kong, Bali, and back and forth across the Pacific with an eight month old I was looking for more specific information. Her book did not even contain something as simple and helpful as a travel checklist of items to bring for around town or for out of town trips--I found that on the Babies R Us website and modified it to my needs. As someone who has, an will continue to take long flights with a little one I was also looking for ingenious ways to keep the little guy entertained on long hauls--no such luck. The strategies for eating out are common sense and ones you are probably doing already. There is really nothing new or enlightening in this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where's the real info anyway? May 14 2003
By A Customer
I bought this book for my wife upon the birth of our child. We travel often and were hoping for some actual information that would help us TRAVEL with our baby, we already knew what to pack when visiting our neighbor. We were bored out of our minds listening to stories about the author's 'little junior'- don't waist your money on this one! We are still looking for a book with REAL information concerning the technicalities of traveling with our baby.

Cross Erma Bombeck with Vicki Iovine and add a touch of tongue-in-cheek West Coast friendly irony and you've got "On the Go with Baby." In my social circle, this has become a favorite shower/new baby gift.
No, this isn't your standard Fodor's type guidebook that gives prices (which change) and hotel suggestions (which also change). I'd suggest Fodors for that. BUT! If you want something quirky and very useful, get this book. It's such a great book for raising the spirits of frustrated new parents. The information in here is *real* child care information. The author is has been here, there, and everywhere with her child and stepkids and it shows. Want to start a home business with a baby around? Want to know how to order in a cafe with a baby around? Want to go camping or overseas? It's all here. A great tip book, especially for sleep deprived and stressed new parents -- that would be all of us.

1.0 out of 5 stars ugh. Sept. 15 2002
By A Customer
THis book had lots and lots of "adorable" stories about cute things the author's child did while traveling. It did not have much information that you couldn't figure out yourself, using common sense. I tired quickly of the author's anecdotes, and wished she had more substantial information, such as info on renting/availability of car seats, high chairs, services in different hotels , services provided by airlines, etc. Don't waste your money on this book, unless you are the type that never tires of hearing endearing stories about a stranger's child!
