12 Tips (Learned the Hard Way) for Traveling with a Small Child
Pack a Bag of Tricks
Lines are longer than ever, and your baby will have a lot of time to kill. Pack accordingly: Bring your child’s favorite toys as well as a few surprises for the really difficult moments (just don’t lose the one toy or blanket that your baby can’t sleep without—I’ve lived in fear of losing my son’s stuffed bunny for years). If he or she is eating solid foods, bring those that are the least apt to spoil or make an unmanageable mess. A small backpack is a convenient, lightweight, easily accessed place to keep everything.
