Maybe it’s just me, but few things are more daunting than the idea of flying with a toddler. Trapped 30,000+ feet in the air and stuck in a seat as long as the fasten seatbelt sign is on. Ugh, no fun. When the hubs and I found out we were expecting our first baby we SWORE that we would definitely keep our travel on. “Our baby is gonna fit into our lives, not our lives into the baby’s.” Ahhhh sweet naivety.
While we do still travel a good amount, things are slightly different now. Going on a trip involves more than just packing a carry-on and making sure our liquids are easily accessible in zip-lock bags. So.much.more. Traveling with tiny humans isn’t easy, but it is SO worth it. I challenge you to be willing to brave the “mean muggers” and go for it. Practice makes perfect and there isn’t a better way to teach your little how to be a seasoned traveler than by making it a part of your lifestyle.
My goal here is to share some tips and tricks that I learn along the way. I’m just a typical traveler with a typical toddler who enjoys kicking the seat in front of her and peeking at the passenger behind her. Who knows, maybe I can help make your trip a little easier or motivate you to at least consider the idea of traveling with your tiny.
