The Traveling Mom's Top 10 Essentials for Road Tripping with a Toddler
Headed out to visit family this Thanksgiving or holiday season? Road trips with little ones can be stressful. Believe me — we’ve logged enough hours together as a family in the car to learn a thing or two about making it more fun and stress-free for everyone! So I used my experience with our son on long car trips to present to you my top 10 road trip essentials from the Disney Baby Shop!
My Top 10 Road Trip Essentials!
Getting ready to spend some family time in the car? Confused on what to bring? Here’s my top 10 holiday road trip essentials from the Disney Baby shop! Click through to see them all!
Less Mess = More Happy
Spill proof cups are a major WIN for long trips in the car. You don’t have to worry if they fall upside down in your little one’s seat or on the passenger sitting nearby!
A Fun New Book To Explore
It’s all about novelty when it comes to entertaining a little one for hours in the car. So I like to pack a few brand new books and toys that will be exciting to see and hopefully hold his attention for a while.
Something Extra Cozy
Our little one fights sleep in the car until he’s a tired mess. But we’ve found keeping an extra soft and snuggly blanket nearby can help him feel more comfortable and able to relax.
Comfy Car Clothes
No one wants to be in restrictive clothing on a long car ride, toddlers included. Plus, messes and drool are bound to happen, so I pack a bunch of soft and comfy play clothes that are easy to switch out and easy to clean.
Easy Feeding Anywhere
It adds a tiny bit to our packing but we like to bring 1 set of toddler dishware so that no matter where we end up for lunch, we know we have a clean and easy system for our little one.
No Spill Snack Containers
I want to kiss whoever invented these snack containers! They are AMAZING in the car! Little ones can feed themselves without creating a huge mess. Great for small snacks like raising or crackers!
As Easy As Can Be
Toiletries can take up soooo much packing room. So I love products that do double duty like these disposable washcloths that soap up when you get them wet! Now you don’t have to worry about baby shampoo spilling all over the inside of your luggage!
I love small toys that have an interactive aspect. Like this spinning toy. Our son loves anything with buttons or levers or mechanical aspects. So stuff like this is golden for in-car entertainment
The All In One Solution
Portable systems like these are soooo amazing for travel. Yes, they take up some extra space but you can use them as a crib, a storage space, a changing table, and a playpen all while you’re on the go.
