Can you imagine starting your career with a whopping one thousand dollars (or seventy-five thousand rupees) each month? Also, can you imagine starting your career before you could even possibly walk? No, we aren’t joking, and no, this isn’t fiction. This is the true story of Briggs Darrington, who has been trotting as many places as possible — and making good bucks while at it, all at the age one and counting.
Social media influencers pave the way for the next big hit on social media — an awwdorable traveler, and might we add, one who is probably less than half your size! This little munchkin is taking the virtual (and real) world by storm, and we just can’t get enough.
The Cutest Globetrotter Ever!
When you make your way to baby Briggs’ social media handle, you’ll most likely witness a cuteness overload. But that’s not all. This tiny globetrotter is also seen alongside some of the most captivating landscapes. The little munchkin, along with his mommy, Jess, has been sharing all their travel adventures, so we get to see them having fun hot air balloon rides, enjoying the sun on sandy beaches, and sometimes, just unwinding in some of the most beautiful resorts.
His mother handles the Instagram account called “whereisbriggs”, but it’s safe to say that baby Briggs has positively grabbed the spotlight! With close to thirty-two thousand followers, his Instagram page is almost like a user manual for parents who want to explore the world with their babies. The baby influencer shares details of baby-friendly spots, travel products that are a must-have when you’re still in your diapers, and a bunch of hotel tips that you simply cannot miss.
How It All Began
Briggs was born on the fourteenth of July last year (2020) to travel blogger parents Steve and Jess. It goes without saying that the little one got the travel bug from Steve and Jess — they too find joy in exploring and discovering what the world has to offer. Pregnancy and childbirth can turn your life around, so although the arrival of her newborn was the most fantastic news ever, it also meant that her travel plans had to take the backburner. Or, at least that is what we all thought!
Never one to give up, Jess decided that maybe, her career didn’t have to come to a halt. She and her husband decided to give baby travel a shot, so the newborn had his first overnight glamping experience at three weeks of age. For those who are wondering what glamping is, it is essentially camping but with a lot more luxury! Let’s admit it — it’s totally acceptable to ask for camping and luxury when you’re all of three weeks!
Since then, the youngest traveler in the world (perhaps) has visited and explored almost sixteen states in the United States of America. Also, he’s boarded close to forty-five flights!
Experience And A Lot Of Diapers
With travel comes experience. Every road you take when you travel offers a brand new experience for you to look back on. But for Briggs, in addition to experience, he had something else — free diapers and wipers. Yes, you read that right. All that traveling requires quite a load of diapers, so this baby earned this for free! Travel boards and players in the tourism sector collaborate with the baby and his mother, and that is how he gets paid close to a thousand dollars each month. As they say, hard work pays off, and this baby sure has a dream job!
Baby Travel Tips…In Case You Want To Jump On The Bandwagon!
Let’s start by saying that we have an ongoing pandemic, so consider all safety precautions before you begin traveling (that is if you can be traveling in the first place). Here are a few baby travel tips that you should keep in mind before starting any kind of travel:
- Make sure you always prepare your baby for the climate. Never compromise on the safety and comfort of your baby.
- Invest in breast pumps so you can express your milk in case breastfeeding isn’t possible.
- Invest in a baby carrier — it is an absolute necessity!
- Carry a separate bag that holds all of your baby’s items, so you don’t have to look too hard to find what you need.
- Most countries require newborns to have passports, so this should be taken care of, especially if you plan to travel internationally.
- Carry a first aid kit with all the necessary medications in case of an emergency.
- Take a picture of an emergency contact, and make it the lock screen wallpaper on your phone. Also, keep a family member or friend aware of your itinerary at all times.
There’s a good reason why baby Briggs is so popular and the most loved influencer out there — he’s doing something we all wish we could do! Add to this the fact that he is super cute! It sure is tempting to follow in his steps and take your baby out, but check with your doctor before doing so. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments below!
