Travel seats with toddlers

One thing to be aware of is that airline regulations require that large travel seats – any which jut out past the edge of the airplane seat – must be in the window position.

This is to prevent it from blocking easy exit; if you want your child sitting in the aisle position, you may want to invest in a smaller scale travel safety seat.

Entertaining children in the car

For long car trips, sit in the back with the child. This may seem so “Leave It to Beaver,” but it is easier to entertain your child while next to him.

Safety tip for traveling with toddlers

When traveling during the hoidays consider “labeling” your toddler with an ID bracelet. Some airlines advise this just in case your child gets lost in airport crowds. Include your child’s name, your name, your destination and your home address and phone number.

Travel tip

When traveling, pack a cooler that sits in the backseat with you, but out of reach of your toddler.

Car seats and air travel

For air travel, consider buying or borrowing the car seat that converts into a stroller and fits down the plane aisles.

It is easier to get around the airport without carrying the kid; with no need to wake a sleeper when you land. They are FAA approved and actually fits in the airplane seat.

Plan frequent stops

If your journey is longer than 3 hours, plan to stop every two hours… even if it’s only for a 10-minute potty break.

Traveling with youngsters in diapers

When traveling by plane, bring a lot more diapers /pull ups/ snacks than you think you’ll ever need.

Pack 3x as much as expected. The extras don’t take up too much space and you would be disgusted at the limited food options available either on a plane or at an airport.

Toddler airport safety tip.

Carry a current photo of each child you are traveling with.

If your child does get separated from you, you can immediately hand the photo to security at the airport (or theme park or mall) and they will photocopy it and circulate it very quickly.
