Useful Tips For Traveling With Kids

>> May 26, 2017

Do you know that children under two years old can be granted free tickets by all airlines? So, why don’t you seize this opportunity to start a trip together with your family? If you are worrying about the inconvenience you may face when traveling with children, some tips below I draw from my own experience may be helpful.

1. Take a note of what you possibly need to use for your trip a few weeks before your departure. It includes the items you use every day or every week, especially babies’ clothes.

2. Make a good preparation of a cloth band so that you can carry your child pick-a-back or right in front of you. This helps reduce the amount of time you have to spend holding your child in your arms while moving, so you can do other things by yourself instead. Remember to choose the type of cloth band with waterproof liner.

3. Don’t forget to bring a small blanket or a piece of thin cloth with you to cover in case you breastfeed your baby on the plane or a crowded train. This may make you feel more comfortable because of your protected privacy. In addition, such item also makes your baby feel warmer.

4. Get ready to confront with the situation when your baby cries because he or she may suffer an earache. This is a result of the pressure change during the process of takeoff and landing. To solve this problem, you can breastfeed your baby or use baby bottles or rubber nipples at that time.


5. Get ready to cope with the weather

A simple advice is that children should be dressed comfortably depending on the terrain and weather. This helps them adapt better under any circumstance. With the availability of all the items, it will be totally blameworthy if you forget toddlers’ gloves, dress them in four-sized ski-suits that seem too large, or cover their feet with nothing on a beach with lurking sea urchins.


6. Make preparation for travel potty

It is really terrible to travel by planes and means of public transportation when you are participating in the potty training days. However, the best travel potty will make everything become easier.

With the compact design, you can fold travel potty down to save room for other items and put them in the bottom of the diaper bag or your car's trunk. Generally, travel potty is used for a short period and accompanied by a potty chair or potty seat.

7. Underwear and diapers

These items are a little delicate, so there are a few things you have to notice. It is necessary to bring enough such items and two extra backups for everyday use. 

In addition, before traveling with your children, you should consider how many diapers in a day your baby needs because you may not buy them at the destination. 


8. Cameras and digital cameras

These are also indispensable things for each trip to take photos. For example, you can take a photo of a parking spot at the airport, so you can find that place quickly and easily when you come back.

Some types of mobile phones are equipped with cameras with high resolution, so you can save room for other items in your suitcase instead of bringing with a camera.


9. Medicines

The first thing parents have to prepare for your children when traveling is drugs or pharmaceutical products for the emergency.
In addition to prescriptions, you should also bring with the first aid kit including bandages, painkillers, and antimicrobial lipids.

10. Cleaning solution

If you can’t spend 20 seconds washing your hands with soap and water, it is advised that you should bring cleaning solution. And one notable thing is that you have to read the instruction manual carefully before applying it to children.


11. Paper bags

Clean plastic bags are very useful because you can use them to contain leftovers, waste, dirty clothes as well as swimming costumes after a whole day of full joy at sea.

Family travel is supposed to be an exciting and important opportunity for parents to raise their children’s awareness of the world as well as gain more experiences. Therefore, it is really necessary for fathers and mothers to make a good preparation before traveling. 


12. Travel High chair

If you intend to go on holiday with children at the age between 6 months and around 3 years old, one of the important pieces of travel kit you should definitely bring with is a travel highchair. With the help of such tool, feeding children is not a difficult task anymore. Also, you won’t have to face the dirty floor every day because of your children’s naughtiness while eating.
