Traveling with Toddlers: Tips for You

1.) Do pack 4 sets of back-up activities and snacks. You will go through at least 2 sets, so it's best to be double prepared.
2.) Do become friends with whoever you're seated next to on the airplane. That way, when your kid throws her puzzle piece at him, he will just smile and pick it up, instead of shooting you dirty looks.
3.) Change diapers BEFORE boarding the plane. Can you believe there are no changing tables anywhere on an airplane? Passengers think your kids are cute, until they poop. :)
4.) DON'T care what people think when your child is running full speed and screaming at the top of her lungs through the airport. If she doesn't get her energy out in the airport, she will decide she would rather climb under the seats of the plane than sit on your lap.
5.) Bring the favorite of all favorite books. Just pretend you don't know it by heart.
6.) Escalators in airports=the most exciting part of travel! Take them over and over again if possible.
7.) Don't get your hopes up about sleeping on the plane.
8.) Bring paper to color on. The flight attendant's don't think it's funny when they find crayon on the tray tables.

I hope you have enjoyed my flying with toddler tips. Thank you for flying Hewlett airways.
