USA - New York, Baby

The city that never sleeps welcomed us again!

We have been in New York 3 times - twice as a couple in 2017 and 2018 and this year we have traveled as a family having also our daughter with us.

Since I have received many questions about how I prepared for traveling to NYC with a 7.5 months old baby and since I realized that would have been helpful to have all the places where we have been in the past stored in a place, I decided to add this experience in my blog - maybe it inspires/helps some of you or even myself if we travel again there soon :).

We traveled KLM . They really make traveling with a baby fun and easy. (Thank you, KLM). Children who are younger than 2 years old can travel sitting on your lap free of charge (you only pay few airport fees). On the way there we had an extra seat where we could put the car seat of Anastasia and on the way back we have requested the special baby bed that was provided by KLM and put on the wall of the plane. She slept like a baby inside it.

Once we arrived there, we took an Uber and went straight to the hotel. We stayed this time on 8th Ave. Before we stayed on 6th and Lexington - I think I liked it more before. Nevertheless, the main attraction areas are all quite close by.

As it is still pandemy, wee decided to walk throughout the city and not take metro, bus or ubers (except to and from airport). Our stroller did amazing and we walked daily between 20.000 and 30.000 steps. We have Bugaboo Fox 3 and are very happy with it. Also Anastasia was amazing - she allowed us to feed and change her in museums, shops or restaurants :)

Below I would like to share the key attractions for us when traveling to New York and few advices, or well maybe too much said advices - things that helped me while I traveled with a baby.
