Best Airports for Babies /Toddlers

Airports are getting better at finding ways to keep children occupied. The European airports seem to be catching on fairly quickly. Send us your thoughts on airports that are good or bad for baby travel. Here are just a few:

GREAT- Amsterdam Schiphol has a new state of the art nursery that is dark and quiet with beautiful cribs and leather couches for parents.

GREAT- Madrid Barajas has cribs and two playgrounds- one for younger children and one for older children. They are also happy to look after your children if you would like to leave them there- not sure about that one but it is there none the less.

BAD- Stockholm Arlanda does not allow strollers passed security and although their new terminal finally has good changing facilities, the stroller issue poses real problem if you are changing over at another stop- or maybe even two. You are without a stroller for the rest of your trip. Strange coming from arguably the most family friendly country in the world.

Send your list of dreaded or loved airports for babies and toddlers to- or leave us a comment.
