3 ways to make travelling with a toddler easy



Travelling with a toddler is one of those things that most parents tent to fret about. You envision them kicking off, screaming public transport down, being hard work and so on. That doesn't need to be the case, at all. It pays to be prepared when travelling with children and here are my top 3 tips on how to make travelling as easy and stress free as possible.


1. Pack a travel bag for them.
In May we took Noah abroad for the first time and after hearing so many horror stories about how awful it is to fly with a toddler I decided I needed to have some plans set in stone. The first one was to pack him a flight back to keep him occupied and entertained whilst we travelled. Inside I included a sticker book, games, toys, surprise eggs, a colouring book and even the iPad as back up but we really didn't need it. His travel bag kept him entertained all the way to Majorca and back and he would even read his books whilst sat in his pushchair in the airport. It was a godsend and my top tip for anyone planning on travelling with children anytime soon.

2. Make sure they are comfortable.
I'm quite fortunate that Noah is quite an easy going toddler but one of the reasons why he will complain is when he isn't comfortable. When travelling either locally or as far as abroad it's always important to make sure they are comfortable whether it's in their buggy, carrier or booster seat. A comfortable toddler is a happy toddler. I also make sure to pack clothes for all different types of weather too as you don't want them getting chilly or overly warm, especially when going overseas.

3. Pack lots of snacks.
Toddlers are rather easy to please if you think about it and one of the keys to their heart is through their tummies. Pack them lots of of their favourite snacks and you're in for an easy ride, or at least we were anyway!
