Traveling with Kids
Whether it’s by plane, train, or automobile, traveling with toddlers can be a real challenge — especially if you’re flying by the seat of your pants! Don’t get caught unprepared. With planning, you can reach your destination with a minimum of fuss (and maybe even a little fun).
Consider your youngster’s daily routine when scheduling travel time. Some parents like to drive after dinner so their tots can have some awake time (and a full tummy), then sleep through much of the trip. If you’re flying you might not have that option, but do try and stay close to your kiddo’s schedule — meaning meals and naps should not be delayed by much.
Take your child’s comfort item. He might be able to better nap on a trip if he can snuggle his favorite blue blanket. If your child normally has a small drink of water before he naps, have it available. Get a good shade for your child’s window, too. He might snooze better if he doesn’t have sunshine in his eyes.
If you’re driving, stop once in a while. Your kiddo will be much more content if he gets the chance to burn off some energy!
You’ll need to bring plenty of entertainment. Small toys, music, and DVDs are ideal for distracting stir-crazy kids. Even more fun are travel games you can play together. How many red cars can he count on the road? “I Spy” is a super game to play together on a train or plane where the scenery inside doesn’t change much.
Don’t forget the snacks! There’s not much worse than a hungry tot who’s off his schedule. Bring extra in case your travel is delayed.
Lastly, don’t forget a positive outlook and sense of humor. A smile can go a long way!
