    Has anyone taken a 3 month old to the parks. Do you have any tips?

    Hi, Chris!  I have not taken a three month old into the Walt Disney World theme parks, but I did take a four month old - actually, all three of my girls were visiting the parks at the age of four months.  The big thing is to keep the baby cool and well hydrated. 

    I LOVE the clip on fans that attach to your stroller as a way to at least keep air circulating around the baby.  I always bought mine from one of the online baby stores, but they now sell them in the theme parks.  Keep the canopy up over your stroller to help keep the sun off the baby - not only to help with the heat, but to keep the baby from getting sun burned.

    Try to do one thing outside, then one thing inside - especially if you plan on visiting during the summer.  Walk through the shops when you can to get from one place to another while staying cool.

    Check with your pediatrician about keeping the baby hydrated.  Some docs will suggest supplementing with water, others suggest additional breast or bottle feedings, so ask your doctor what their recommendations are.

    When you need a break and a cool, comfortable place for both you and the baby to rest, check out the Baby Care Centers at each theme park.  They are fully stocked with baby essentials, plus there is a nice place for breast feeding, comfortable changing tables, and high chairs. 

    I never found we needed to head back to the hotel for naps, but if you are going at the peak of the summer season, when it is so hot and humid, you might want to consider heading back to your room for a bit of a break. 

    Have a wonderful time, and take a ton of pictures!
