British Airways and Britax

British Airways announced this summer that they will be flying into the Calgary airport on a regular schedule again. Yipee!

We seem to have more and more friends living here from the UK. One of my friends just came back from a trip to England with her 3 year old and 5 year old. Deciding whether or not to take her own car seats on board was a dilemma that stressed her out.

Well, leave it to a company like British Airways to offer families all the amenities of first class travel. The airline is now offering BRITAX car seats (known as the best in the biz) for use on board their flights. Their website says that, “We (BA) also have a limited number of on-board Britax seats which are attached to the bassinet positions. These seats are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and can be requested from cabin crew on-board the aircraft.”

How cool is that! Now all my British mommy friends can travel back home to see family and friends with one less stresser on the trip.

Diapers, Forumla & Baby Food in paradise!

Ever since I started One Tiny Suitcase I continually find really cool services for traveling families, that I had never heard about.

If you were like me, you might be planning your first trip and as the departure grows closer you realize just how much stuff you need to take with you. It is staggering.

Well, here is one service that will lighten the load of your luggage. There are some really cool companies that will ship Baby Supplies to your vacation destination for you. You go on-line and ‘shop’ for your favorite products, they charge a convenience fee plus the shipping costs for their service. You get diapers, formula, baby food, sunscreen, and more waiting for you in your hotel room. Now that’s relaxing….
