Traveling with Toddlers

This summer was my first experience in the world of traveling with toddlers! Adding a third person (who seems to need a lot of stuff) means we need more space in our suitcases and bags! I am a pro at rolling clothes instead of packing them flat thanks to a tip my stepsister gave me many years ago.

Toddler clothes are small anyway. Right? Roll them up and go! But W always seemed to have a lot of clothes even if we were just going to Galveston for the weekend. When we got to the hotel, I had to spend time unpacking them and matching up outfits.

Then it hit me! Since his clothing is smaller and doesn’t really save much room by rolling it up, I could save myself some time.

The solution?

Put each outfit in a Ziploc bag!

It seems so simple now that I’ve realized it. I grab the shirt and shorts for each outfit and bag them up separately. At the hotel, I can just move the bags from the suitcase into the dresser. It also works great for throwing an extra outfit into the diaper bag.

I think it would work great for girls with accessories too. Shirt, shorts, underwear (for older kids), and headband. Grab and go!

Definitely a vacation lifesaver!

How do you make traveling with toddlers easier?

  2. I have thought about doing this very thing! So glad to hear it actually works – I’m definitely trying it on our next trip!

  3. That’s a great idea! Plus if their clothes get dirty and you don’t want whatever is on it to get on anything else you can put them back into the ziploc. This would work well in the diaper bag too. I’ll have to try this trick when we go on vacation later this year! Thanks!!

  4. Love this! Wish I had found this a few weeks ago before we went on vacation. Great for storing the dirty cloths in too.
