My wife and I like the idea of taking our son on a pair of one-on-one vacations, one with each parent, to build special memories with each parent. We'd like to extend the offer to our beloved nieces, whose immigrant parents couldn't afford these kinds of trips, but I'd appreciate any input on whether that sounds grandiose or distasteful.

Childproofing hacks for traveling? I'll be traveling in Mexico with my 2yo and 5.5yo, staying in a variety of places (rental houses, condos, B&Bs, and hotels). Given my experience with hotels in general, I think I'll need to childproof on the spot without knowing in advance what the trouble spots are and without having access to lots of supplies. Will the traveling parents of MeFi lend me their hacks? [more inside]

This summer I'll be traveling with an infant from New Jersey to Florida (Tampa Bay area/Tarpin Springs). I've gone to a few sites and picked up a book, but I was hoping for some personal tips/stories from parents that might not have been gone over before. Also, which would be better, traveling by car train or plane? Thanks!
