Travelling with a toddler is definitely a task. Toddlers are at such an age that they want to do everything on their own while running around the place. Exploring the environment and eating everything that they get their hands on is the main agenda of their days. So while you want to travel with your kid, it would also be a cumbersome idea. So to make your travelling experience as less stressful as possible, we have curated a list of a few travel essentials which you can pack while travelling with your toddler.

7 Essentials To Pack While Travelling With A Toddler
1. Snack Cup
You will be surprised but a spill-proof snack cup is a must while travelling with your toddler. Sacks are an easy destruction for a toddler and kills the travel time easily. Toddlers usually like to hold their snack on their own and a familiar snack cup with spill-proof characteristics can cause minimal dropping of the snack.
2. Portable High Chair
It may be an add on luggage for you but it has so many advantages that cannot be ignored. Toddlers are definitely messy eaters and the restaurants you may visit on your trip may or may not have high chairs. So it's better to carry your own chair and avoid a fiasco during meals.
3. Travel Bed Or Pillow
If you have bought your toddler a separate seat on the airplane, bus or train, inflate a comfortable bed for a very young kid or a cushion for a toddler. This will ensure our toddler will have an uninterrupted sleep experience along with you.
4. Favourite Toy
If your toddler plays with a particular toy or loves any particular book, you would definitely not want to miss carrying it. Reading to your toddler while wasting for the transport or letting him play with his toy will keep him entertained on the long travel hours and will give you some time to doze off too.
5. Toddler Headphones
If your toddler likes to spend some time on a tablet watching his/her favourite cartoon, then you should invest in a comfortable pair of headphones which have volume limiting characteristics. Let the toddler get busy with informative videos or cartoon series.
6. Stroller Or Carrier
A light-weight stroller, toddler carrier or any other way that your toddler likes to be carried, is a must-have for your trip. You should be keeping the normal activities intact and familiar for the toddler as much as possible as they are already in an unfamiliar environment. It may also be easy for you to do the sight seeing, shopping or walking easily without having to worry about carrying the toddler at all times.
7. Backpack Or Diaper Bag
It is always a good idea to keep all the baby stuff in one place in a dedicated backpack or a diaper bag. You do not want to dump everything in your handbag and worry about a forgotten rash cream or toothbrush or a diaper. Assign a bag with all the things needed and carry it with you at all times.
Have safe and happy travels!
