Having a baby doesn’t mean that you need to stop traveling the world and discovering new things! Instead, you just need to carefully consider where you are going and if your chosen destination is going to be baby-friendly. Thankfully, most places around the world are perfect for babies, but a few of those destinations are much better than all the others.

Things To Consider When Choosing Your Next Family Vacation Destination
Here are some of the best baby-friendly destinations:
1. Bali, Indonesia
There are numerous baby-friendly resorts in Bali, plus most of them offer affordable babysitting services for those parents who want a couple of hours to themselves. Little ones will enjoy seeing the animals at the nearby zoos and parks, while also playing in the wide-open spaces. Parents can choose to do a few of the more thrilling adventures, while their babies are sleeping under strict supervision, or they can choose a few of the safer options that they can do with their baby in tow.

2. Tokyo, Japan
The culture in Japan may be different than other places in the world, especially when it comes to moms breastfeeding in public, but it is still one of the most baby-friendly places to visit. The city has done a tremendous job of ensuring that moms are comfortable in the provided family rooms at businesses, restaurants, and other buildings. These luxurious rooms can be used for nursing and diaper changes, but they are not the only amenities offered for parents within the city. Parents can also visit the numerous Baby Cafes, where they can have something to eat and relax, while their little one is sleeping or playing.

3. Florence, Italy
Florence is full of color and sounds, which makes it perfect for a curious baby who is beginning to learn about everything. Parents will find that they can take their little ones to the wineries and vineyards with them, because there are always other babies visiting with their parents. Small children will love being upright in this area of the country, instead of in a stroller, because they will want to catch a glimpse of all the action. At the restaurants, the servers understand that babies do not like to wait, so they are very quick with taking orders and delivering food.
4. London, England
There are numerous parks and green spaces in the city of London, which is why it is one of the best places to travel to with a baby. The streets are easy to navigate with a stroller, and babies love seeing the animals at the zoo. While a baby isn’t going to love visiting every museum within the city, they will sleep through some of them and be intrigued by the rest. While London can get crowded during peak times of the year, it is still safe, and visitors will find that the locals are quite friendly.

5. Chicago, Illinois
Chicago may have earned the nickname of the Windy City, but that doesn’t mean that parents need to shy away from this popular attraction. Instead, parents should bundle their infant up and take advantage of the many stroller tours that are offered at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Field Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art. The marine life at the Shedd Aquarium will keep the fussiest baby entertained for a few minutes, and the fresh air down by the Navy Pier will have them snoozing sooner than later.

6. Montreal, Canada
Babies love being walked through the city streets of Montreal, because there are plenty of other people to see along the way. Thankfully, the streets are easy to maneuver, whether parents are just walking along with their baby in a carrier or if they are pushing a stroller around from one area to another. The best part about Montreal is that there are multiple child-friendly festivals held throughout the year. That means that parents will be able to keep their little ones entertained without completely overwhelming them.

I think Armenia. Georgia and Azerbaijan, all these east European countries are great for kids. Even Turkey, saw so many kids having a good time there
Good website ..and i love it..
I believe Japan should be the top! I witness it first-hand and it is baby-and-kid-friendly place.
I loved this article! I wish there was one like this available when my son was a toddler.
I’m sure it can be challenging to travel with children. That’s nice that you’ve offered up some great choices that the whole family can enjoy beyond the usual playground, Disney or waterpark.
Travelling gives me happiness !! BUT with kids i m little bit worried !! whenever i read your post i got a something new tips and tricks !! Now my first destination with my kids is “Florence Italy” thanks for sharing <3
Over the years we’ve realized we really love the convenience of taking cruises with kids. We did the Mediterranean and visited 3 countries with two young kids.
For Tokyo, I beg to disagree, Osaka, Kobe and Nara would be a perfect substitute. Tokyo is noisy, crowded, and sometimes unfriendly to tourists.
Your family looks so perfect. Haven’t thought much of traveling to these destinations. You just gave me some ideas.
Great to read, I never thought as Bali as a baby-friendly destination.
definitely going to send this to my mom friends!!!
I guess I had never thought about traveling to some of these places with kids! I will or sure add them to the list of places to go now.
I have been to Montreal several times. It is definitely a place to bring children. I am still planning a trip to Bali 🙂
Hi Wellington Family,
I’m yet a lonely traveller, But I got some ideas for my travel book from your website. Thank you !
I have traveled solo to those places, so I know they are great destinations. I can’t wait to visit them with my kids.
Love to see that Chicago is baby friendly! That’s my hometown, and I love babies 🙂
Traveling with babies is really difficult. This post has great travel suggestions.
