We just got home from the happiest place on earth and I couldn’t be more sad, but so thankful for the few days we got to spend together as a family. I’ve been dreaming of bringing Chase to Disney World since the day I found out I was pregnant with him. He was definitely overwhelmed, but was loving every minute of our time away. I’ll do a rundown post about our experience, but until then I wanted to share my necessities for traveling with toddlers. Let me tell you, it was quite the adventure, but I wouldn’t change any part of it. Luckily, we had all of these items with us to make this trip easier, smoother, and happier for my little guy. Keep reading for my must haves for traveling with a toddler!
Baby Bum Hand Sanitizer Spray: I swear by this hand sanitizer. I love the travel size because it’s so compact, smells amazing, and it’s baby safe so Chase can use it too!
Suction Go Bowl: I talked about this in my Diaper Bag blog, but needed to include it here too. This travel bowl was amazing and made feeding Chase so easy while we were away.
Bibsters: These are such a game changer and make cleanup way less time consuming.
Table Topper: Another item I’ve raved about in my diaper bag! These table mats are so nice for quick snacks and meal cleanup.
Baby Utensils: Chase has become very independent and loves to feed himself. These training utensils have been so great and they even come in a travel case!
WiHoo Mini Handheld Stroller Fan: I love the idea of these stroller fans and knew we needed to have one for our Disney trip. Chase absolutely loved this!
Stroller Organizer: This was a must have for our Disney trip, but is something I use all the time. It holds so much and doesn’t get in the way at all.
Stroller Rain Cover: Rain filled strollers are a no from me. I got this rain cover to make sure that no matter what, my baby would be happy at Disney. Rain or shine!
Munchkin Cool Cat Cup: Like I mentioned before, Chase loves his independence. He uses these cups all the time and loves holding onto the handles!
Portable Charger: Mama needs a charged phone at all times! Taking pictures and videos drains my battery like no other, so this was definitely a must have. I also love that all the cords are part of the device so you don’t need to worry about lugging them!
Packing Cubes: These are AMAZING for packing luggage and carry on bags. I like to be as organized as possible with my packing and these are the best!
Stoney Clover Lane Large Pouch: I talked about this in my Diaper Bag post! Love these pouches and love the easy clean. On most days, I brought this instead of my diaper bag since it fits so much.
Nuna Mixx Stroller: A lot of people have been asking me about our stroller! We absolutely love the Nuna Mixx Stroller and loved having it on vacation with us. Its compact and comfortable for Chase and I really love that it lies completely flat for nap time and can switch from front facing to facing you! Having a stroller face both ways during covid was important to me especially in crowds.
Toddler Crayons: I’ve definitely got a little artist on my hands. Chase loves to color, plus this is great for keeping kids entertained at dinner and on the plane
Kindle Fire Tablet: This tablet is another entertainment must have for travel. Amazing for flying with a toddler and getting through long, hot ride lines. Plus it’s super hard to break!
Kids Altec Lansing Headphones: We opted to also bring headphones for Chase and his tablet just in case. He loves wearing them so it made the most sense anyways! They can be used with bluetooth or a cord.
Let me know your traveling must haves with toddlers! Love getting recommendations from other parents going through this season of life as well.
