The true story of two crazy parents traveling with four small children…on a budget

Passports and Pacifiers follows a naïve, baby-wearing family on eight memorable, affordable, and nap-centered trips. It starts with two bumbling parents taking their Never-Sleep infant to child-loving Italy and ends six years later with an adventure across Scandinavia.

Readers are regaled with honest, often hilarious, accounts of their misadventures, like losing the only pacifier of the trip, missing ferries, and soothing tantrums across the globe. The Jains find deals—traveling just a tad off the prime season, finding buy one get two flights, and using credit card miles and free grandparent babysitters—and save where they can. They stay cheap, shack up with in-laws, and visit generous family and friends.
