Three things you can do this week to simplify holiday travels with baby

by Shelly Rivoli

Travel in peak seasons with the added chaos of gift shopping and possible weather issues can be challenging enough. For those of you who are setting out for Thanksgiving travel or journeys through the rest of the upcoming holidays with young children, do yourself a favor this week and simplify what you can—while you still can.

Here are three things you can do this week and thank yourself for later:

1. Reserve the baby gear you will want to rent at your destination. Whether it’s a car seat or a crib, a box of toys, or baby safety gates, think it through now and getting your reservations in if you haven’t done so already. See the worldwide directory of baby gear rental agencies.

2. Create a shipment of baby essentials or toddler necessities to meet you at your destination. Although nothing says, “I love you,” like a Thanksgiving hug and prompt exit to go shopping for diapers and baby food, it will be a great convenience for you and comfort to your hosts to have the goods waiting for you on arrival. Use a service like Babies Travel Lite (and save $5 with our checkout code TRAVELS) or send a package to your hosts’ address using Amazon.com.

3. Prepare, or update, your child’s Travel Kit. These are the basic products that could help your young child through a wide range of challenges that might crop up during your travels (full list of suggestions in Chapter 3 of Travels with Baby), but could be hard to come by in the middle of the night at a hotel or relative’s home. Especially recommended this season: Baby vapor rub. That’s a photo of my TSA-ready modified Travel Kit I take in my carry-on above, when I put other Travel Kit items in my checked suitcase.

Safe journey,
