I️ started traveling with Jax as early as 6 weeks postpartum. I️ took him back to Nebraska to visit the rest of my family! I️ do visit them pretty frequently and of course Jax would come along. We visited Nebraska last week to for Christmas and it was the 10th time we’ve traveled by air. My oh my how he has changed in just 16 months! Hahahaha 😂😂! The behaviors on the airplane! Im sharing some things I’ve found to be helpful when traveling with your little one
• A back-pack diaper bag
I️ absolutely love my Fawn Design diaper bag, it can hold so much!! I️t was about 4 little pockets that you can put different items in, such as diapers, wipes, extra clothes, bottles. I️ love that it comes in different neutral colors! It is super sturdy and I️ highly recommend one! They also make the mini version, which I’m thinking about buying as well just because the bag is so versatile! It is a bit pricy to spend on a diaper bag, and I️ believe a similar style at everyone’s favorite store, Target, 😊 will be just as great!
Always carry snacks. Always. No matter how long the trip is, or how you don’t think they’ll want it, or whatever the reason may be, just stop. A L W A Y S C A R R Y S N A C K S
Books are a great way to keep them engage on the airplane! Jax seems to really love those pop-up books, I️ think it’s only so that he has things to grab and destroy.. 😑. I️ have been on flights where I️ had forgot the books and I️ noticed that he does get all over the place and it’s harder to keep him sitting still
• traveling strollers
Okay so I️ was skeptical about this one, because I’m thinking ‘why should I️ waste money on another stroller when I️ already have one with the car seat set?’ This quickly changes after about the 8th time I’ve traveled. The regular stroller is heavy!!! And it is very hard to go through security with a baby, a diaper bag and a stroller! Also! TSA at airports are NOT consistent with what they want you to do with the stroller! Some will say you can walk it through the little metal door, whereas some will make you fold it and go through the belt. It is UNCLEAR! I’ve been in situation where I️ didn’t know and they told me to put it on the belt, and also where I’ve spent all the energy and work to fold it and put it on the belt and then being told I️ have to take it back down.. 😑😑😑. So, travel strollers??! Yes, please!!
Those are the tips I’ve found to be helpful! Let me know what helps you the most when you travel with a baby!!
Thanks for reading! Much love ❤️❤️
