Tips for Road Tripping With a Toddler
Do you really want to engage with road tripping with your toddler? The following tips will truly help you. Obviously these tips have been tested and trusted:
Drive At Night
This is the best and most recommended for so many reasons. First, your toddler will be sleeping at nights, and you won’t be worrying about feeding him or paying closer attention to him.
Driving at night will make you concentrate on the trip; the only time you will need to stop will be when you will have to refill your gas. There will be no need to stop and buy snacks, because the baby is already sleeping. Just take time to plan, and let them fall asleep as you travel.
Of course, a crucial point to this tip is getting your baby to fall asleep in the first place (something parents know can be a struggle). Having the right car seat is crucial for this, so it is something you will want to research closely. I found that the most reliable information on the best infant car seats can be found at MovingBabies.com, so I advise that you check them out if you’re looking for one.
Here is another great resource I found:
Bring New Toys
As you drive at night, there are chances that your child may wake up in the middle of the night, so make sure you come along with some toys that will distract him a little. It is advisable you bring new toys; research has shown that babies are keen to play with new toys than the ones they are used.
If you give them toys they have used in the past, they may be uninterested in playing with it and they will start disturbing or needing your attention and this can affect your trip. So, a new toy has the capacity to distract him for several hours. Just as adults love new things, kids also love new toys too.
Put Your Toddlers in Comfortable Pajamas
If you will be driving all through the night, it is necessary you put him in some pajamas- comfy clothes like a light t-shirt and stretchy pants. Car seat straps will keep your toddlers snug and tight. Your babies deserve to be in the right pajamas all through your trip.
Pack Enough Snacks for You and Your Baby
Before you set out for the trip, make sure you pack enough nutritious snacks both for yourself and your toddler. Variety, they say is the spice of life, so it is important you pack both sweet and salty things.
Toddlers love to taste sweet things, so make sure you give to them in abundance during the trip. Don’t forget you may still need to eat, so carry some energizing snacks for yourself too.
Try any of these tips mentioned above, and you will be surely experience a fun-filled trip. Have amazing and fun-driven trips!
