Real Mom Talk: Traveling with Children
December 16, 2014 8:30 pm | by

IMG_7291When it comes to traveling with a baby/toddler, I think I’ve become quite the pro at it. Recently, we traveled 25+ hours, by car — with an energetic 2 year old. What an experience that was. With the holidays in full swing, I know many of you will be busy traveling with your own children. Here are a few helpful tips to make getting to your destination a little smoother. 

  • Create a “Fun Box.” This was a lifesaver on our trip. I picked up a small plastic basket from the store and filled it with things that were fun like small toys, books, flash cards, fruit snacks, wooden shapes, coloring books, etc. It would keep my little one entertained.
  • Don’t Rush. Give yourself plenty of travel time. When you’re with kids, traveling usually takes a bit longer, so be sure to plan for that. 
  • Take Long Breaks. During pit stops, be sure to let your little ones stretch and burn off some energy. I will usually plan out a few places to stop that are kid friendly and take a couple extra minutes to let my baby play while we are there. 
  • Technology. I’m usually not one to enforce technology on kids, but I must say our iPad kept our little one quite entertained on our long drive. I downloaded a few of his favorite shows and some educational apps. The Tiny Hands apps are a must! 
  • Make Traveling Educational. On our long drive, I would make up fun interactive games with my little one. We’d count stop signs or guess the colors of passing cars. You would be surprised how educational these little games are and how occupied they will keep your little one.
  • Pack Lots of Snacks. Lunchskins Reusable Snack Bags come in handy 🙂 I packed things that were healthy and easy to eat on the road. 
  • Flip Covers make traveling with cloth diapers easy! Flip Diapers provide parents with options and flexibility. You can use one cloth diaper cover with three absorbent insert options to meet your needs, allowing you to change it up and enjoy life wherever, whenever.

I hope you all find these tips helpful during your holiday travels. What tips or tricks do you have for traveling with your little ones?

Safe travels this holiday season!
