We are on an East coast tour from Boston to NYC to Philadelphia through early December and couldn't be more excited about traveling to family for the holidays! Have you been watching some of the nightmares on my stories of traveling with a toddler and a newborn? 😳😬😂#ad -
People have been asking me for travel tips with a toddler via DM from my stories. Since Rainier was 7 weeks old we traveled a couple of times a year on a plane. Newborn/baby travel is a whole different beast than toddler travel.
As Rainier got to the toddler stage, I needed a way to transport him in the airport, the car seat and to strap him in to keep him with me as I rushed through security and had to stay in one place for bottle checks. I found the best way to handle all of this was to transport the car seat to the gate and gate check it. This way I could strap him in so he would stay with me, I can check the car seat for free, and with the @tippytraveler I now have one less thing to pack and worry about. So gate check your car seat and wheel it to the gate! 👍🏻
Another tip, when shopping for a car seat, not only buy based on safety ratings but weight too. We didn't think of that at first but recently just got a @nuna_usa Rava car seat for its sleek and stylish design but also because it's much lighter to travel with than our last car seat! -
After all, who doesn't want to look like super woman traveling through the airport with baby in a car seat, Toddler in his car seat, luggage and in a small heel. 💪🏻🙌🏻
Moms of toddlers, what are your travel tips? #holidaytravel #momlife
