Traveling with Kids

Traveling with Kids
by Mrs. Party... Gail Leino

Vacation time is meant to be a relaxing experience, a time to rejuvenate.  Taking a few simple steps with careful planning ahead of time can truly make your travel adventure an effortless trip for the whole family.  Organizing your flight plans, car rental arrangements and hotels reservations in advance will help to make pleasant vacation. 

Flying Tips:

Ear pressure during take-off and landing can cause a lot of pain.  Help your child by providing them with gum or a chewy food.
Many flights no longer serve food, bring food and snacks.
Keep the kids occupied by bringing activities such as coloring books and cards.
Ask the airline attendant at the start of the flight for pillows and blankets.  They run out quickly so ask right away even if you think you might not need them.
Stand up and walk around periodically with the kids, even if they don't quite need to stretch yet.  This is great preventative medicine to avoid a possible melt down.  Because if the kids are ready for a stretch and the fasten seat belt sign is on, that could cause frustration for the kids.

Car Rental Tips:

Check ahead of time the rules/laws for car seats.  Make sure the car rental company has the proper weight car seat.
Ask the car rental company if the vehicle has child proof locks.
Make sure your stroller will fit in the truck.
Check the inside of the car for cup holders before leaving the rental agency.
Bring water bottles in the car freezing them the night before.

Hotel Tips for Kids:

Arrange for a rollaway bed or crib ahead of time, hotels do run out.
Ask about a welcome package for the kids, many higher end hotels do provide welcome gifts for the kids.
Kids clubs are available at many hotels, check for hours and ages groups.
Resorts tend to schedule special activities for the kids especially during the summer months, ask the concierge about this.
Some hotels limit the pool hours and fitness center for kids, inquire about this prior your vacation.
