Flights with Babies and Toddlers Require Preparation and Forethought
Flights with children are generally traumatic. I’ve just done 1 international 14 hour flight alone with two children, 1 international 11 hour flight with my husband and children, and 4 domestic flights. All in the span of 2 months. Thats a whole lot of flights.
Its not because the flights themselves are always awful, but because of a number of factors:The anticipation of the flight. The tiring nature of the flight. The jet-lag as a result of the flight (this is such a sore topic that I covered it all in [...]
I recently shared some tips for the planning stage of your Walt Disney World vacation, and today I wanted to share some tips on making sure you get the most out of your day at the parks. When it comes to doing Disney World with a toddler/preschooler, it’s all about maximizing your time and hitting the parks EARLY (i.e. right when the parks open). Here are some key things we have learned to get the most out of our park days. I am going to be speaking primarily about Magic Kingdom in this post, as this park is typically the biggest hit with the toddler/preschooler crowd.
Set your alarm and plan to arrive early. This is key. We all know that preschoolers are early risers, [...]

This is not a sponsored post. We just love cruising as a family and want to encourage other families to give it a try – even large families.
Traveling with kids is a hard task. From the constant question,” Are We There Yet?” to the statement, “I’m Bored.” As parents we try to make the car rides go as smoothly as possible. Therefore, we pack snacks, and grab the electronic devices to help keep our children occupied. But what do you do when the snacks run out and the electronics batteries are completely dead? Bring back the classics! That’s right, the games we used to play in the car when we were children.

Traveling with a Newborn? Springtime is coming! For most families, this means travel. And if you have a newborn in tow, this can sometimes be a lengthier (and difficult) process. I’m often reminded of the trips we took with my son while he was a newborn. It isn’t easy, but here are a few things I learned along the way through some trial and error.
When preparing for long distance travel destinations, consider these tips that I used, for those long trips in the car…
