Okay so first of all, this is a list of items I bought to travel with my toddler BUT we have not used them yet so I’ll for sure come back and review them once the trip is over! Some may find it excessive, but let’s just say I am hoping to be over prepared for any situation! haha We have traveled quite a bit and know that things get delayed/canceled so I guess you can say we are planning for the worst and hoping for the best!
We will be traveling international and it will be our first time traveling with little man since he has been mobile. We traveled with him internationally last year when he was 8 months old but he was not mobile yet. You can read all about that travel experience HERE.
For this trip, we have decided to not take an overnight flight since the flight times did not work for us, so we have one stop and each leg of the trip will be about 3 hours on the way there but we will have a 5 hour stretch on the way back.
Our first flight leaves at 6am which means we have to leave our house at 2:30am so wish us luck haha We are not entirely sure how the day will unfold in terms of naps but since his night time sleep is so solid now, we are hoping once we arrive, he will get that full nights rest and we can go from there.
Okay! So now onto the items I bought to try and keep our toddler busy and entertained while traveling.
So far that is everything we have purchased to keep him busy while traveling and a lot of this can also be used in our hotel room while getting ready or needing some down time.
I will work on a blog of a packing list but I will wait to post it after we return so I can tell you what I am thankful we had and what I think we would have benefitted from also bringing!
Wish us luck on our first travels with a toddler! We are very excited about the memories we will make as a family!
