Tips for Travelling with Toddlers and Young Kids

It is one thing to have decided on the destination, but another to be travelling there with a young one. Embarking on the journey with toddlers might seem daunting, but with the right preparation and mindset, it can be equally enjoyable and stress-free! Here are some invaluable tips to help you navigate the adventures of travelling with young kids:

1. Plan Your Packing List

You want to feel prepared at all times without bringing more than you can manage. Create a comprehensive packing checklist tailored for travelling with your toddler to prevent that. We would recommend highlighting items that need to be packed at the last minute so you can do a final check before hitting the road!

2. Bring The Right Travel Gear

Travelling with a toddler can be stressful but the right travel gear can make all the difference. Save yourself the trouble of chasing after restless toddlers and juggling multiple bags with the Miamily MultiCarry Ride-On Luggage (available in 18” Carry-On and 24” Check-In sizes). Have your toddlers sit atop the suitcase and cruise through any destination with ease. Plus, it holds up to 100kg in weight, making it a portable seat even for adults.

3. Entertainment Is Key

Travelling to your destination can involve hours on planes, cars, buses, trains, and more. Keeping your little ones entertained during these long rides is crucial. Prepare a variety of age-appropriate entertainment options, including their favourite movies, TV shows, interactive games, and beloved toys. And don’t forget to pack their treasured books from Josh & Cherie!

4. Keep Calm And Carry On

No matter how well you prepare, tantrums and meltdowns are inevitable when travelling with toddlers. In those moments, do your best to stay calm and composed. Take a deep breath and focus on comforting your child. As long as you are trying (and what parent isn’t?), you will find empathy from those around you.
