I hope to visit Canada next year. I would be traveling with my toddler son who then will be three years old and my baby daughter who then will be one year old. I have read a travel book about Canada and looked at some transport websites. To travel with my children the mini bus companies want me to have car seats for my children. I will be traveling with a double buggy and my toddler son is disabled so with all that and our luggage I wouldn't be able to bring along their car seats. I have traveled with my toddler son to five different countries and didn't have a car seat for him with me. What do you think I could do about not having cat seats with me in Canada? Is there a company that I could hire baby equipment like car seats from?

Haven't been on mylot for a while, so you've had another baby since? I have too! I think the best thing for you to do is to rent the car seats. unfortunately I don't live in canada so I can't direct you to one. do you have a good carrier such as the ergo baby? I have that and used it for my baby until she was 1. it was especially good for our trip to bangkok.

It is lovely that you are back on wonderful My Lot and that you also have had another baby. My baby girls is now 6 months old. How old is your baby? My baby is so heavy that she does go well in any make of baby carrier. I might try her on my back because she doesn't go well in a front carrier. I hope that you had a great time in Thailand.

Hi!I think you should consider your children's safety, if it's good for your children, you should do it! By the way, why don't you leave your babies to someone or somewhere? For my part, I like travelling alone, so that I can enjoy myself better!

I wouldn't be able to leave my toddler son with anyone. He needs me to do his catheter care and leg exercises. He is disabled. My baby girl is still really young and needs me. I did used to travel alone and I really liked that.

Hi, If you happen to come to Toronto, I will get you couple of car seats, you could keep as long as you stay here, in Canada. You happen to be the second lady from UK, I happen to know thru MYLOT visiting Canada. If you any kind of help during your stay here, please feel free to let me know.
