A. Non Mouse, who blogs over at NaCl and hv, has just written a great series of posts about her strategies for successfully bringing a baby to a conference. Check out her how-to posts on childcare, transportation, gear, and accommodations.
This is a subject that is close to my heart, and one that I’ve written about before (here, here, and here on a trip when Minnow was 9 months old, here at 18 months, and here’s a manifesto on the subject that was featured in last year’s Open Lab ).
And it’s funny timing too that A. Non Mouse writes about motherhood and conference travel now, when I am trying to figure out how I’ll manage this fall’s big conference. The conference combined with a pre-meeting field trip and cross-country flights has me away from home for almost 9 days. I’m weighing my options but right now I’m just not sure what I’ll do.
