Travel Tips for 1 year old?
Hello Parents and Happy New Year! We just figured out that this summer near the end of June we are going to South Carolina to visit my aunt on Myrtle Beach. We live in Massachusetts so it’s like a 16 hour trip! I am looking for tips from parents on here on the best way to travel with Jacob… he’ll be 1 on June 3rd!
We are driving…that is the tricky part..it is cheaper that way, and our goal is to save money so we have more money to play with when we do things down there. We also have a Hyundai Elantra…so think small car with limited room to pack things
Here are a few questions:
Should we bring the pack and play or co-sleep? Which would be easier? I am thinking we will have to find room for it since he goes to bed before us and for naps…but may by 1 yr old he could sleep on the floor for naps?
How often will Jacob need to stop to stretch his legs?
What would be the best way to transport cows milk for him and how much on average do you think he’d have in a 16 hour period?. We don’t nurse..don’t suggest that.
Any other tips? I found a cool car toy he’ll be getting for his birthday but should we also maybe buy a portable DVD player (or borrow one) so he can watch a few videos?
also what food should I bring for him? to save space we can always buy some toddler meals there at the grocery store..but just wondering.
Amanda I already have the space bag idea! GMTA!
