What’s the one thing you absolutely HATE when it comes to travelling with kids? If you are anything like me, it’s packing. I hate packing for a family trip. I love travelling, but packing suitcases? No! Having said that, after visiting many countries and covering more than 70,000 nautical miles with our son (to date), I have learned a thing or two during the many times I’ve been getting us ready to jet off. So, to make your life easier, here are my top travel packing tips for families to help you pack like a pro when travelling with kids!
Hey, guess what? Our son at the ripe old age of 6 has done over 70,000 nautical miles by plane so far. How do I know? By totalling up the miles recorded in his flight logbook. And since we’ve accompanied him during those flights, either both parents together or mum on her own, it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about flying with a baby and traveling with toddlers. With our experience comes a certain level of knowledge and to help you with your forthcoming flights, I’m going to share with you some awesome tips for flying with a baby or toddler.
So, you’re considering jetting off with your kids but are looking for some hints, tips and secrets to travelling with kids to ensure it’s a pain free, enjoyable experience. In this post you’ll find some great information about travelling with kids, tips for flying with young kids, and what to do once you reach your holiday destination with my A to Z of travelling with kids. This is written from personal experience, so if I miss anything I apologise in advance!
When flying with young kids, parents often stress themselves out over what they should pack in their kids luggage for them. For us, it’s no longer a source of worry or stress. Having flown with our son so many times, we’ve got our kids’ carry on luggage down to a T. So, to help out other families, here is a list of awesome hand luggage essentials for young kids that we don’t leave home without.
There’s only one thing I dread about flying with our son and that is flights that involve more than a couple of hours or an overnight flight. Why you may ask? Because have you ever flown with a child in economy for more than a couple of hours and tried to get them comfortable enough to sleep? Well we have, and it’s nigh-on impossible, at least with our child. But that may be about to change thanks to the JetKids BedBox. We were given the chance to receive one and today I want to share with you our JetKids BedBox review, what might just be an ideal plane bed for kids.
