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 looked online for baby travel advice and was frustrated by the scattered and limited information available.

As a first-time mom, Corinne wanted an online guide with specific information on destinations, packing, flying tips, and family-specific hotel reviews. So, she decided to create a website for busy parents with questions on traveling with baby. Her husband taught himself the basics, and Have Baby Will Travel 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 combines her two greatest loves: family and exploring the world. This mother of two loves sharing 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 StarThe Huffington Post, WestJet Magazine, WhatToExpect.com, and Oh Baby Magazine to name 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.

Her knowledge and expertise have made her a popular resource for television producers and journalists. Corinne appears on a number of news and lifestyle shows, including: Fox News’ Fox & Friends Weekend, CBC’s Steven and Chris, CTV’s Canada AM, CityTVs Breakfast Television, GlobalBC’s Noon Newshour.

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 tell us how it went when you get back!

Happy travels!
