Children are welcome in this country and you can find many beautiful towns to explore where you won’t be overwhelmed with tourists. You can take a tour through the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Boboli Gardens. I’d advise you to pre-book your taxi online, so you could request for the baby car seat. Also, bring along your baby carrier as the main attractions in Italy are full of stairs.
If you’re looking for where to travel with your kid in Asia, Japan is one of the best places you can opt for as it is kid-friendly. Tokyo has various Baby Cafes that have childproof areas as well as the food you can purchase for yourself. The larger cities also have family rooms located throughout where moms can nurse their little ones. Bring your baby carrier along and I’d advise you choose Airbnb’s over small hotel rooms.
10. London, England
In Europe, London is one of the best places to go on vacation with your kid. There are changing facilities as well as parent rooms readily available and accessible. You can also have a tour of the monumental buildings and colourful environment with your kid either on foot or by public transportation. One thing most parents love about London is how you’re able to move around with a stroller. You can find your way through the underground with your stroller by making use of the step-free Tube map. Breastfeeding in the public is considered perfectly normal and is accepted. Also, children under the age of 5 get to have a free ride on public transports. You can explore the city farms, zoos, and there are many parks.
11. Bali, Indonesia
Bali has it all. From beaches to waterfalls to rice paddies and also wonderful people. It is also baby-friendly because nannies are very much affordable. You also get to rent baby gears if you need them and they are sold for really cheap prices. The hotels are equipped with baby cots and I highly recommend you head to family-friendly areas such as Canggu, Legian, Lembongan or Ubud and avoid Kuta. You can enjoy the rice paddy atmosphere in Ubud and also have some beachside relaxation in Canggu. So for those living in Australia, Bali would be a great choice.

If your baby decides to opt for something other than their formula, you can be certain that the local food will get the job done as it isn’t spicy and is quite soft.
27. Vail, Colorado
The astonishing view provided by the elegant mountains, boundless open space and reflecting lakes makes Vail, Colorado one of the best places to travel with your kids. The destination is kids-friendly as there is an entire baby brand called “Travel Vail Baby ” which gives you an insight into how awesome that place would be for you and your kid. The kids equipment rental company provides hiking backpack, cribs, strollers, high chairs and bouncy seats to make you and your kid comfortable when riding through the peaks and slopes of Vail.
28. Barcelona, Spain
You can stimulate your baby’s creativity from a young age by taking a trip to Barcelona. Your kid will have a very little time to cry as they will be awed by fascinating the neighbourhood. The best time to travel to Barcelona is during the summer when you can have access to multiple parks and outdoors as babies tend to relax more when they have moved around. There are multiple sights and attractions to see and visit. Make sure you take with you a baby carrier because the bumps in the streets of Barcelona could make your baby uncomfortable.

The is one the easiest place to visit with a baby as it caters for their attractions with amazing music, shopping and food experience. There are so many free and budget-friendly attractions to enjoy. It has tons of Kids cafes which are indoor playgrounds that are great for kids. This will keep the fun going during the extreme weather conditions where it could get uncomfortably cold or hot. The city also has a very efficient public transportation system that is budget-friendly and kids-friendly. Several kids-friendly accommodation options make day-to-day living stress-free. I would strongly recommend not to breastfeed in public as the Koreans do not engage in that practice and seeing someone engaging in such a habit would create unwanted attention. However, there are baby nursing stations in larger subway stations, restaurants and department stores.
Selecting baby-friendly travel destinations is one way to have a wonderful vacation experience. Just because you are nursing a child doesn’t mean you have to be stuck at home. This is the time to create fun-filled memories with your little one and explore beautiful places.
