Emily’s Tips & Tricks

I found the travelling with toddlers series fascinating and I hope you did too.  It was completely inspirational and I loved connecting with all sorts of moms who were travelling the globe with their littles.

I spent a lot of time with each mom reading their submission and going back and forth.  Here are a few of the takeaways:

*Attitude is everything.  Thinking positively will get you through a lot.

Travelling with Toddlers - Johanne in Spain

*The destination *is* the activity.  Don’t feel like you have to schedule a million things to do.  Just being in a new place is enough.

Travelling with Toddlers: Jenny in San Francisco and Napa

At Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch

*Have a serious obstacle?  Get creative and find a way to overcome it – don’t let it set you back.  Even if that means catering to a kid with severe allergies by cooking his meal in the hotel on a George Foreman grill every night.

*Be open minded.  Often people are just curious and by letting them in you both gain a new understanding.

*Sometimes you don’t even need to go anywhere.  How many of us have truly explored every corner of the city we live in?

Travelling with Toddlers: Harmony's Newborn Adventure

*It’s often when they are youngest and most portable that it’s easiest to travel.

Travel with Toddlers: Melissa in Brazi

*Be prepared – winging it no longer works. This means having accommodation plans down in advance, checking car seat availability, and vaccinating your kid if needed.

*Personal advice is best!  I know that going to any of these destinations would have totally intimidated me but having these great stories gives me much more confidence to set out on my own.

A huge thanks to Emily, Johanne, Jenny, Gill, Alysa, Harmony, Melissa and Stephanie for all of your help!

And lastly, a friend of mine who recently flew from Sydney to Vancouver introduced me to the Fly Baybee:

It can be used for the stroller or an airline bassinet to completely cover the bassinet to allow your baby to sleep.  Believe me, if you’re on a long flight this may just be the solution you need.  It packs up super small too!  Thanks Amber for the suggestion.

Originally from the prairies and now in Montreal, I love exploring new places, eating great food and modern design. I'm mom of two wild things and paper and cake make me happy. Photographing your cutie family would make me very happy.
