Holiday Tips For Mom With Kids

1. Remember to pack smart

Every child has a favourite toy, or book they absolutely cannot do without. Imagine being stuck with a cranky baby just because you’ve forgotten their toys at home. We’ve seen it time and time again where parents have their entire holiday wasted because they forget to pack their child’s essential needs. For you a toy might be a simple item but it is a cause of comfort for your child. Never forget that. Make sure to try and pack the essentials only. Otherwise you’ll end up carrying your entire home with you. If you are travelling with an infant ensure to carry enough toiletry supplies. You never know when an emergency will delay you flight and you could be out of some really important items.

2.Carry other forms of entertainment

If your kid is responsible enough and old enough it would be a great idea to give them a camera. It will be something to occupy their time while you have fun visiting the sites. It will help you in two regards, firstly you won’t have a child constantly seeking your attention as they have some other tasks to perform and secondly it would give them a valuable lesson in responsibility at a young age. Who know’ your child might even turn out to be a real prodigy with the camera.

In case you don’t yet trust your child enough to do so make sure you have plenty of activities planned for the kids and not just for the adults. No kid wants to spend an entire day shopping with their mothers.

3.Keep a GPS tracker handy

Most parents don’t like to keep their children out of their sight. For obvious reasons, children are very curious by nature and love to explore the world around them. If you’re not in a threatening location you might even skip come attention from your child. Even for a few seconds and you child could already be racing up stairs and trying to find the best place to make mischief. Keeping a GPS tracker on them will keep you mind at ease in such situations and make them easier to locate in the event they do get separated. It really does help. Also it makes sense to sew up some tags into their clothing with your contact details. In case you’re not able to get through to them with your GPS someone might notice the tag and get in touch with you instead.

4.Avoid Sweets

This is a no brainer. Children get really affected by sugar. Their sugar rush makes little monsters out of them and you’ll spend most of your day chasing after them rather than enjoying a fun vacation. Also when the sugar rush dissipates your child will absolutely tired and fast asleep. So much so you might have to carry them around everywhere you go. You don’t want to find yourself in that situation.
