Have Baby Will Travel’s mission is to inspire, motivate, and help families travel with their babies, toddlers, and young children…
How Have Baby Will Travel Was “Born”…
In 2006, Corinne McDermott+ wanted to take a family vacation before her first maternity leave was over. She was frustrated by the scattered information available on baby travel. She wanted specific information on destinations, packing, flying tips, and family-specific hotel reviews. So, she decided to create a one-stop web brochure for busy parents with questions on traveling with baby. Her supportive husband taught himself the basics, and Have Baby Will Travel was launched from their basement in the spring of 2007.
Have Baby Will Travel is that online guide for travel with babies, toddlers, and small children. Corinne has been able to combine her two greatest loves: family and exploring the world. This mother of two loves to share baby travel advice, trip reports, and helpful tips, tricks, and resources. She is also a passionate advocate of the value these experiences can have for everyone in the family.
Sharing Family & Baby Travel Advice…
Corinne is a prolific writer on the topic of family and baby travel, and her articles have appeared in Canadian Family, Today’s Parent, the Toronto Star, The Huffington Post, WestJet Magazine, WhatToExpect.com, and Oh Baby Magazine to name but a few. She is a noted family travel expert by FlipKey.com, a TripAdvisor company, and a busy freelance travel and parenting writer with a large following on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Out of the success of Have Baby Will Travel, Corinne launched Have Baby Will Travel Consulting.
She is a TICO-certified, Authorized Independent Travel Consultant and Family Travel Specialist.
In Addition to Have Baby Will Travel…
Before founding Have Baby Will Travel, Corinne was a veteran television producer. She enjoyed a long and successful career with Canada’s largest broadcaster. She produced entertainment documentaries and specials on the world’s biggest music stars. Her last production was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award.
In the Spring of 2013 she was lured back to Canada’s largest media company, and is currently the editor of Movie Entertainment Magazine and an occasional contributor to TheLoop.ca – a lifestyle destination website.
Corinne is the proud wife of veteran broadcast producer and content creator Darcy Fedorchuk and mother to Megan and Riley. They aren’t babies anymore! Their YouTube channel is Reviews for Kids. Corinne and her family call Toronto home… when they are not off on their next great adventure.
A Word from Corinne…
The first few months of motherhood were challenging, and I felt proud if I made it out of the house, never mind out of the country. But as my daughter became more settled, my confidence grew – and so did my desire to travel again.
A lot of people thought we were nuts for taking the baby on vacation, but it was such a wonderful experience that I wanted to make it easier for other families as well. I hope you find this website useful in making your travel plans, and please send us your trip report when you get back!
