At the Airport
Prepare your toddler for travel, involving him or her in the trip planning process. If possible, take them to the airport to see what happens. This will make them much more comfortable with the entire process.
Remember to dress comfortably and layers are preferable because you can adjust the comfort level depending on the temperature at the airport and or the airplane. Bring entertaining and maybe new toys the kids haven't played with, as to keep them busy during long layovers or late flights.
Books: If your toddler is starting to read, check out a few books from the library and let me read out loud to you while in the car.
Movies: A portable DVD player can be a life saver. Bring along a movie they haven't watched and surprise them if they start getting cranky!
Wherever you choose to go, remember that organization is the most important thing when traveling with small children. Happy Traveling!
