Traveling With A Toddler

Sale PSA: A camel cashmere bicolor coat from Max Mara, now 40% off, a draped short sleeve romper from Halogen, now under $55 (I picked up one in black), a pretty and quite sexy little black dress from Bailey 44, now under $150, and a pretty embroidered summer dress from SEA (why is everything from this brand so pretty and so $$?), now under $200. 

We just returned from a trip to Maui with baby Feather – a sort of another “babymoon” before #2 arrives, and while they’re fresh in my mind, I thought I’d share some of my learnings about traveling with a toddler.

If you have younger children, I also wrote earlier about traveling with a baby, if you’re interested!

1. Buy a seat. This is just my opinion, but once you have a kid of a certain size and wriggliness, I’d buy them a seat on the plane. I know, having a free lap baby is super tempting, and there’s always the chance that you could luck out and there’ll be empty seats, but I will say that on our way to and from Hawaii, there were empty seats in our row all the way until boarding, and then the plane filled up completely. And I really don’t know what we would have done without a seat. I think it would have been torturous (especially since I’m pregnant). Instead, our toddler sat pretty much the whole way to and from happily in his car seat, which he was very familiar with, and I felt that he was safe in case of turbulence. He didn’t sleep though. We’ve never gotten him to really sleep on a plane. It remains a pipe dream.

By the way, we used this stroller to carry the car seat through the airport, and we were the envy of all parents. It not only makes it so easy to transport your car seat, but wheels right onto the plane, and also doubles as a stroller through the airport. So, so recommended. We didn’t bring a separate stroller.
