Getting from point A to point B with young kids is an adventure within itself. Whether by plane, train or automobile, parents are on the search for ways to make family travel a little less stressful.
To help, Sandy Chang, mom of two and founder of SandyALaMode.com, is offering her five best travel hacks. These hacks won't guarantee a tantrum-free trip, but they will help parents feel as prepared as possible for the journey ahead.
If you’re flying, bring empty bottles to fill with milk or water before boarding so your family can stay hydrated on the plane.
“I always make sure the kids are eating and drinking at takeoff and landing to help prevent their ears from hurting,” says Chang.
“The Baby Jogger City Tour stroller has been a great option for us. In addition to the backpack-style carry bag that helps keep hands free to tend to little ones, it folds up small enough to fit into many airline overhead compartments,” says Chang. She also notes that, despite its compact frame, it doesn’t compromise on storage space underneath the stroller. The stroller’s UV50+ sun canopy with built-in extension helps protect babies on sunny days, and the durable wheels swivel for greater maneuverability, which is especially helpful in crowded airports.

Many kids love chipping in. “Austin absolutely loves pushing Vivian around in her stroller. I think it gives him a sense of control, and it’s just fun,” says Chang.
Traveling with children is never easy, but having a few well-planned hacks will help ensure a smoother journey and more fun for the entire family.
