Moms, we feel you. The constant battle of wanting to take your little one to explore the world and the hassle of traveling with kids can be endless. But if you just know the right tips and lifehacks to traveling with your toddler, you will definitely want to travel more with your little darlings. Without further ado, here is our 10 best tips aka the survival guide to easy traveling with your toddler:
They say “ if you fail to plan, you plan to fail” - and this couldn’t be any truer for when you’re traveling with kids. It helps to be diligent with your research, from the places you’ll be going, types of outfit your toddler will be wearing, to even the most unlikely scenario that might happen during your traveling.
We recommend you get planning at least a week before flying and get your agenda and pens ready. There is going to be a lot of scribbling and making notes involved.
There won’t be any lack of source to find the smart way to pack these days. Just browse any youtube videos for the most efficient ways to pack and make sure that you use durable luggage to store all the important things for you and the little buddy.
Plan for the flights that work best for your toddler. For example : if it’s an early flight, just carry your dear one while she is sleeping without the need to wake her up. You can also plan for afternoon flight where it coincides with her naptime. This way, the flight won’t be too taxing to your kid’s normal routine.
Plan to take the stroller? This seat on the wheels can be the perfect lifesaver when your toddler refuses to walk and too heavy to carry. However, not all cities are stroller friendly so it’s best to do your research well or you’ll end up with your hands full. For the cities that are not going to welcome stroller, ditch it and switch to your favorite sling or carrier instead.
Grumpy kids need their snacks and drinks. It’s important to keep their hydration level on check while keeping them happy with little treats. You might want to be selective though with your snacks, because high sugar content can pump their energy and bring them to a lousy mood after! Stick with low-sugar and healthy snacks on the go.
Introducing your kids on museums, zoos, theme parks and the likes is a great idea for a fun holiday. However, do consider the burden of being in crowded places or going through rush hour to get to your attraction spot. Arrange so that they can still visit these fancy places in the quiet hour and you’ll be sure to have more fun together.
Pack travel-friendly busy books, small toys, or install new games in your smartphone just to make sure they have the right distraction when boredom attacks.
Put your mind at ease by putting aside an emergency pouch for the familiar remedy your kid may just need during the holiday. From the fever reliever, gel for insect bites, bandages for cuts to his favorite vaporub, put it in a waterproof bag and at the easiest to reach position in your luggage or bag .
A happy momma makes a happy toddler. Pay attention to your own well being by keeping positive and enjoy the holiday too.
Teamwork makes the dream work. Involve daddy or other family member in creating an enjoyable holiday for all. Brief your hubby before going that he’s going to be an active parent in caring for your little one.
