Eid Holiday Travel Essentials

Holidays are coming in a few days. Planning a fun road trip or jet setting for the Eid Holiday? With a toddler or child in your crew list, packing for a trip might be tricky. But no sweat, we’ve rounded up our best travel essentials to make sure you’re ready for your adventure.

1) Be ready for any kind of weather with stroller add-ons

Make sure your baby is protected from the sun’s rays or from rainfall by packing important accessories for your stroller. Be in the know from your flight details to pit stops to weather predictions. Pack your clothing according to the weather in the area and find the best activities beforehand.

2) Be safe and ready

Always bring a safety essential kit for your little one.Just Essentials makes this easy for you with its Safety Kit which already has the essentials for protecting your child from places that are not yet baby-proof and to prevent any accident that might come along. An added tip: When packing for your child, bring spares of the most important things just in case.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3) Stay organized

A trip with kids means bringing around toys, care essentials, snacks and many others. Be creative with packing a wide variety of different items together by using organizers which you can stick to car seats or strollers to keep things multi-purpose and convenient for travel. You can also opt to give your toddler his own travel bag or stroller. Make sure to pick one that is lightweight, comfortable and fun

 

4) Pack light

Bring things that are versatile, lightweight and compact. Thankfully nowadays, things just find a way to be smaller and easy to carry around. Take for example the Stokke Flexi Bath which folds flat ever so easily. Remember not to bring too many clothes, you can opt to have them washed and remember to keep the shoes to a minimum, or best stick to one pair to wear that is versatile. This tip applies for both mums and kids 😉

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5) Snack or Rewards Bag

Babies, toddlers and tykes, love their playtime. Be sure to pack some fun toys and activities to keep them busy at all times. Packing an activity bag filled with fun toys to play with or books to read will keep them preoccupied during the trip. Is the long trip keeping them grumpy? Make sure to bring pocket sized snacks and drinks.

I brought my first stroller when I was three months pregnant. It was an impulse buy during one of my many nesting periods. I was passing a baby shop and suddenly the urge took me to buy a stroller. Unfortunately, as it turned out I had no idea how to fold it (there are two buttons and a leaver that need to be pushed simultaneously in order to collapse it), how much it weighed (a cool 15kg!) and as it happened, it didn’t fit in the boot of my car.
