We enjoy traveling, but with a baby or toddler, everything changes. Our priorities changes and our world is baby’s comfort and food. It is always a lovely idea to see new places and meet the family. We are always on the road to meet the family locally and international. Being in Florida, the beach is one of our main destination. Even though it is not far from home we need to think of food that baby will enjoy and have fun as well. Sharing our Tips for Traveling with a Toddler today.
Since summer is here, we need to get our summer stock so we can always have our favorite travel-ready snacks and on the road we go. We normally would go to Walmart to pick up these family snacks. Our favorite for our toddler is Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) Snack as it is appropriate for our toddler who enjoys to feed herself and it just the right size when we are on the go. And what is dangerous is that everyone enjoys baby snack a bit. Hm!
What I like the most is that it is a mess free snack. Did you know that Gerber Lil’ Beanie’s are made from navy beans and also contain 10% of the daily value of vitamin E? They are baked, non-GMO, no artificial flavors/colors/preservatives, convenient, and perfect for babies’ little fingers. It is an on the go baked treat for my lil babe that have 2g of protein and 1g of fiber per serving. Oh yes, it is a #GerberWinWin.
Honestly, I have been blessed with great travelers and always expect the unexpected. I normally prepare my babies by explaining that we are going on an adventure to see the family but we will be going on a plane with mommy and daddy. We need to sleep well and behave well as there will be lots of people going on that adventure but not to see our family. Even though, they are young and do not understand, I have always prepared them with what to expect and answer any questions that might be asked. Training them as they grow and really it seems they are more prepared than I am, really! This is my backpack for my baby when traveling locally.
Tips for Traveling with a Toddler
- Try to schedule fight during baby’s sleeping time or feed the baby when the plane is disembarking or is landing. This rpocess helps with the ear popping. To be practical, having a sleeping baby when plane disembark helps as they are not aware of the process. If the child is tired and sleepy, this can cause a very irritated child to react badly and interrupt a smooth flight for parents.
- Always have a variety of snacks to choose from. One of my favorite snack to have for my toddler is Gerber lil Beanies. There are a variety of flavors. My favorite flavors are Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) (Original) and Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) (White Cheddar & Broccoli. Both are:
- Baked snack made with beans. What I enjoy about these products is the fact that it is naturally flavored with other natural flavors. Gerber is awesome for thinking of our hearts outside our body-: our darling children.
- Highly recommended is a form of entertainment: music or their favorite storybook to keep the baby or toddler calm. If they are used to electronic device, take the device to keep them entertained. Always have several interactive game to keep them occupied.
One point that is most important is that having an extra pack of your favorite Gerber lil Beanies would make a difference during any unexpected mishaps on the road, sometimes things just don’t go according to plan. Yes, mothers uses the Girl Scout motto “Be Prepared!” Mom are you prepared for any mishaps on your road-trips? I enjoy the Gerber® Lil’ Beanies(TM) (White Cheddar & Broccoli. Please, share with us which is your baby’s favorite or is it yours?,
