Travel Tips Tuesday

Here are a few helpful travel tip for travelling with babies!

Instead of bringing a regular diaper bag, pack a book sack or back pack-type diaper bag. They have much more space for storing small items and allow for carrying more snacks and other accessories needed for park-packed days.

When traveling, keep any medications for baby with you, not in your checked luggage. Check out my previous post, Packing Lists, for a checklist of what we packed in our book sack to help you with your packing. The book sack never left our side for the entire trip, so everything that we needed was there.

Another helpful hint is to bring a few empty plastic zipper bags with you. They are great for soiled clothes, dirty diapers, eating utensils, and anything else that may smell or make a mess. This way, when you get back to your room (or to your destination if you're traveling), you'll have a contained mess that will be much easier to clean. Something that came in handy on our last trip was packing a small travel size bottle of laundry detergent in your luggage. All Walt Disney World resorts have laundry facilities for their guests to use - luckily, at the Caribbean Resort where we stayed in June, the facility was in the building next to ours, so we gladly took advantage on one of our afternoons in the room. Even if you stay somewhere where laundry machines are not available on site, you can always use the detergent to clean a soiled outfit the old-fashioned way, in the sink!

See ya real soon!
