Edwards blogs about their adventures, as well as reviews of baby travel products and advice for traveling parents, as the Travel Mad Mum. While the occasional tantrum or lost toy might cause a few bumps in the road, Edwards loves traveling as a family and seeing the world with a baby on her back.
I was just like, ‘I can’t give this up yet,’ she said. We started thinking, ‘Well maybe we could bring the baby with us.’ And it was quite an instant decision.
Edwards said she would have started it earlier, but Just like any other new mom, I was definitely in that same daze.
