I'm still trying to think through the logistics and make sure I'm prepared for the entire trip. My sister lives downtown in Chicago. She and her husband either walk or take public transit (and cabs, occasionally); they do not drive or own a car. I'll rent a car for part of my time there (mostly to drive to Ohio to visit other family), but will primarily be on foot with DD and my sister. It'll be sort of a dry run for my sister, who's expecting twins in August - how to manage the city with a baby!
So, I'd love any tips or advice on the logistics of such a trip. I will wear DD a lot, but what if I need to put her down while we're out? I will, of course, be taking her car seat, and will need a stroller to get it (and our stuff) from the train station to their home. Should I take a regular stroller, or just an infant seat carrier stroller? I've envisioned her sitting opposite me on the train, playing in "her" seat, but then I wondered if I shouldn't get something like a Bumbo to ensure she *stays* there, as she's mobile, already, and getting moreso by the day. Or should I just use her carseat when I need her to be still?
I'm sure there are many more things to think about (and that I've considered at some level, already), but mostly I'm just realizing that I *really* need to get things in order and figured out so that I'm ready in 25 days! I appreciate any tips or info from those who have been there and done that!
