Packing for a trip can get a little overwhelming. There’s such a fine balance between having everything you need and packing way too much.
Let your toddler pack a few of the travel toys in his own carry on! Just make sure to keep them small, like a few small cars so you don’t overload your toddlers’ backpack.
Even if your toddler doesn’t have a lot of screen time at home, having a few shows or fun apps can occupy your toddler for small amounts of time on the plane.
If you bring an iPad or tablet, it’s worth it to have some toddler headphones for the airplane. Our list is full of great options that are safe for your toddler’s hearing.
Your toddler can pack a few small books or puzzles in his own carry on. Bigger items should go in your carry on.
One more way to occupy your toddler during a flight is toddler airplane snacks that take a while to eat, like cheerios or blueberries.
This will help keep your toddler hydrated and avoid messes made by using the regular plastic cups (which make good airplane toys).
