France with a Baby General Recommendations

  • Airbnbs are great because you can make it feel more like home
  • Bring a stroller like the Baby Zen Yoyo
  • Be prepared to change diapers in the stroller or on the grass. Most restaurants in France don't have room for a big changing table.
  • Trains are difficult with a baby or children, it adds a lot of stress. Consider renting a car instead.
  • Don't assume people speak English. Try French first! Ask "parlez-vous Anglais ?"
