My son is a Canadian citizen by descent — because I was born in Canada. Applying for his U.S. passport was relatively easy. But when it came to his Canadian passport, my first attempt at his application was denied. See why. Plus, how to apply for a Canadian passport for a child while living in the U.S.
I recently flew solo with my 14-month-old son on his first airplane ride. Most airlines let you gate-check strollers & car seats for FREE. Since I knew that I would need a car seat once I arrived at my destination (and I wouldn’t be comfortable renting one), I made a portable car seat dolly using a cheap luggage cart! After attaching the car seat to the luggage cart, I could use it like a stroller to get him from the car to the plane AND keep him confined while exploring the airports during layovers.
