    I am leaving for WDW in 2 weeks with a 8 mo. I have been several times but neer with a baby. Being as it is hot and summer should I bring a front carrier or just stick with the stroller only? I dont want the baby to get too hot. Any tips

    Hi Shanna,

    I am so excited for your vacation which is approaching very soon!  I have traveled with an infant as young as 6 weeks, so I understand your concerns.  Since it is so hot out and sunny, I would probably stick with a stroller that is capable of folding down and has a canopy.  You can always put a light colored blanket on the canopy for more shade for your baby.  I think that the front back would be too hot for you and they baby, and I would worry about your baby having too much sun. Bring a sun hat for the baby as well so when you do take the baby out of the stroller, this will help shield his or her eyes.  I want you to know that all the theme parks have Baby Care Centers.  These are wonderful places where you can get out of the heat and noise.  They have changing tables, rocking chairs, and complementary Carnation Baby formula. Other air-conditioned areas are some of the shows and Table Service restaurants.  Just take the days slowly and enjoy your new baby!  Be sure to get some pictures of your little one with the characters;  you will treasure them as she grows up.  I know your vacation will be magical!
