Tips for traveling with kids

I’ve just written, GALLEY GOSSIP: TRAVELING WITH KIDS: A FEW SUGGESTIONS… that is posted over at Gadling.com today. With summer already here, there are more kids than ever on the flights. If you haven’t brought a child on-board with you, chances are there’s going to be one (or two) on the airplane seated near you. I feel for you. Really, I do. Hey, I’ve got a two year-old little monster of my own, a seasoned traveler who has traveled once a month since he was three months old, so I know it’s not easy traveling with kids. But there are a few things you can do that I mention in my post that can make your trip a little less stressful… After you read the post, come back here and share whatever traveling tips I didn’t mention.


WANTED: TRAVELING WITH CHILDREN TIPS
– If you have a great traveling with children tip, let me know by posting a comment here. (I’ll share that tip with my readers over at Gadling) At the end of the month, I’ll choose my favorite tip and the winner will get a brand new free copy of my son’s favorite traveling book, JANE’S ANIMAL EXPEDITION, a Baby Einstein lift the flap book that kept my son busy for at least an hour on each and every flight since he was 6 months old to now! What parent doesn’t need a little peace and quite on the airplane? What, no kids, that’s fine, because you can still win 6 FLIGHT ATTENDANT GREETING CARDS designed by me! It’s your choice.

  1. Traveling with kids: Bring toys and snacks. It always drove me nuts when parents brought nothing but clean diapers with them on the plane, leaving a kid nothing to do for a two hour flight but scream bloody murder.

    Another tip: sedatives.

  3. Put the kid in the window seat and suck it up and sit in the middle as a buffer. You may think it’s sweet when your kid snuggles up to you in her sleep, but perfect strangers do not especially like being drooled on on the redeye.

    And on a day flight, looking out the window can be a good distraction if you forgot that DVD player!
