Are you planning on traveling this holiday season? Maybe planning on bringing the newest edition alone with you but you are not sure about traveling with a baby. Well, we have a few tips for holiday travel with a baby we wanted to share with you in hopes it makes your holiday travels a little more enjoyable and less stressful so you can focus on what the holidays are really about.
Start a list a few weeks before your trip
Planning a trip for just you and your spouse can be enough of a nightmare adding a baby to the mix can be just plan stressful. To avoid the stress, start a list a few weeks before you plan on leaving so you can add to the list when you think of things, this always helps me make sure I remember everything.
Plan ways to keep baby busy
Before you load up and head out the door be sure and plan a few ways that you can keep your baby busy. Things like DVD’s, books, music, snacks, toys and more can be helpful because it can get a bit boring in the backseat.
Dress them nice and comfy
When you are traveling with kids of any age be sure to dress them comfortable, it will make the trip much more enjoyable for everyone.
Start packing early
Start packing a few days before you leave for your trip, so you can make sure you get everything. Don’t forget to use your list and mark items off as you pack them.
Don’t forget your camera
It’s a trip, don’t forget your camera so you can capture all those fun, silly and not so fun moments. They are all memories and you’ll be glad you have them.
Make sure you have an extra outfit handy
Life happens, in my case it never fails there is always spit up, leaky diapers and more. To avoid having to dig through everything you packed toss an outfit or two into your baby diaper bag, so you can access them quickly and easily.
I know this is one of the biggest things you’ll be taking along but it’s also something that is easily left and defiantly something you will not want to purchase along the way. There are some fabulous strollers out there like the Graco Breaze™ Click Connect™ Stroller that makes one-handing folding possible. Seriously it’s the easiest folding umbrella stroller and it even accepts Graco Click Connect car seat in one easy breeze but secure step.
The Breeze™ Click Connect™ Stroller is approved by Mr. Gavin for sure and this stroller will hold him until he is 50 pounds, which is great news for parents. The last thing we want to do is buy several strollers, right. The Breaze™ Click Connect™ Stroller is lightweight but you can still trust that it has a sturdy frame for maximum portability. Oh, and let’s not forget one of Gavin’s and my brother’s favorite things, the multi-position, reclining seat that lays flat for your littles one’s comfort, or fun times.
The Breeze™ Click Connect™ Stroller has plenty of other excellent features check it out:
- Lockable Front Swivel Wheels which include suspension to help with the stability and maneuverability.
- Convertible 3 or 5-point harness that grows along with your little one.
- Extra-large, easy access storage basket to hold all those travel essentials you’ll be carrying when you are out and about.
- Removable parent cup holder that is awesome and convenient for whoever is pushing the stroller.
- Extra-large canopy with UV 50 protection and pop out visor.
- And for easy transport you’ll love the Auto Fold Lock and Carry Strip.
- To aid your child in growing ride computability there is the adjustable calf support.
- The extra-large canopy includes a UV 50 protection and pop out visor to provide your little one with much-needed shade from the sun.
The Graco Breaze™ Click Connect™ Stroller is awesome, needless to say when we got ours Gavin was thrilled to open it. He knew it was for him and knew that my brother would be taking him for a joy ride before putting the stroller to work, lol. You know I can’t blame him my brother is pretty fun and surprisingly a great driver behind the stroller, lol.
Gett the Graco Breaze™ Click Connect™ Stroller up and running was a breeze, I promise not neatly as hard as Mattie’s face makes it look lol. I think Gavin was definitely more confident because he knew an adult was going to handle things. He just wanted someone to hurry so my brother and him could begin their fun time cruise and give the stroller a good test run, lol.
Needless to say, Gavin 100% approves of the Graco Breaze™ Click Connect™ Stroller and trust me it’s been put to work since we received it and it’s been nothing but an amazing, comfortable, easy to use, sturdy stroller that we trust almost daily.
