Car Seat Backpack and Air Travel

Hi! I have an 8 week old adorable baby girl and I plan to be doing some traveling without my hubby. Since I plan to go alone, I need some advice on travel gear.

How to Dress Infant for Cold Weather

My daughter is 6 months old and the recent cool weather made me realize we'll need some warm outerwear for the winter months ahead.

Do you find that jackets, etc make babies too bulky for their carseats? What items are worth purchasing?
