It is very different to travel with children and especially with smaller children. I have an infant and toddler so traveling is not so chaotic if my wife and I plan well. It is team work where we divide and conquer each task. There are quite a few websites that provide assistance with material and steps to take. Below is my method to the madness:
- Identify target locations / type of travel like hiking, swimming, walking, long drives, long flights, etc.
- Prepare accordingly for the travel. The prep work is the painstaking part which involves packing the goodies form diapers to snacks.
My suggestion would be to make lists for each location or day of travel and identify what is needed. For example with smaller kids, 4 diapers per day, 2 – 3 sets of clothing per day and so on…
Dont forget the sunscreen (even in winter) and a set of warm clothes (even in summer). You never know when you will need one. Have a great summer.
