    that travelling kit for kid is so perfect for me, but for now will save bucks so I can purchase it

  2. This bed box sounds magical! Did it work well for you?

    • Natasha says:

      Yes! We LOVED it. At first we thought it may be hard to have an extra bag we cannot put on our backs but it was a lifesaver. We wouldn’t go back without it now

  3. I can totally relate with how much I have panicked that my underwear will fall of from my bag whilst searching for other things, so I tottaly understand the importance of packing cubes. It makes life so much more organised. I don’t know why I haven’t given a thought on USB chargers till now, until reading your post. It sounds like an incredibly essential thing!

  4. Have you heard of the 1st class travel pillow? We use it on long-haul flights and it’s the best thing ever. It folds up super tiny and you can put it into your carry on til you are ready to use it. We travel light so it’s perfect and lets our daughter sleep comfortably for the majority of the flight. Great list!

    You have some fabulous ideas – and oh my golly your kid’s adorable! Two Wolves Fight for Supremacy

  6. My goodness, traveling with a toddler… more power to ya! (As long as I’m not kicked too much or they’re overly loud – I understand sometimes that babies cry!) Also, good on you for keeping such good track of your children’s health while traveling! This is super important, especially with the crazy situations that can arise from a hospital visit or stay overseas.

      That is is Tom, it is better safe than sorry right? I won’t lie though, traveling with a toddler has its challenges… I feel a new post coming on about that one! Ha

    OMG! Thank you for sharing this. When I travel, I usually take my clothes all ironed from home and they turn out to be a mess by the time I try to get them out of the suitcase. I am totally going to buy those packing cubes!

    • Natasha says:

      You should! We began the clothes rolling technique for our sons clothes but I heard that it works for adults too. And it is meant to keep the creases out! Check it out and try it next time

    Oh dear. I first read this that a toddler was a travel essential for family travel. Which I guess is true. Waterproof bags are necessary for all travellers.

    Thank God for these gadgets and travel accessories travel with kids have become lot easier.
    A useful guide list for all new parents dreaming to travel the world. Some of them are good for solo travel too.

    Such an essential list! I’m travelling with my little brother this summer and will apply your advice. Saved it for later use 🙂

  11. You have some splendid ideas here! Packing for me has always been nightmarish and no matter how hard I try I can never ever travel super light. Sort of envy guys who travel out of a backpack. I love the organisers ! Sharing it with my friends who have kids!

  12. Diana Chen says:

    Great tips here for those with kids! That little suitcase is so cute. I don’t have kids – and don’t plan on it – but a lot of these are the same travel essentials for adults, so very useful post.

  13. Great tips for traveling with kids! I love the Jetkids Case and we never travel anywhere without a waterproof bag. We are in the market for new luggage and some new travel essentials, thanks for sharing your favorite things!

    Packing cubes are so great! I have recently started to use them and they completely changed the way I travel. I can fit sooooo much more now in my backpack and it takes considerably less space.

  15. Awesome brilliant. We use most of these x

  16. Katie Reese says:

    He is too cute! I barely take my two on trips to the grocery store! Haha. Do you guys still plan to travel once he gets older?

    • Natasha says:

      Haha, well I know how that goes. Even that can be a drama. He is quite well behaved when we are traveling which is a nice change for us. We hope to. Not to the delight of our families of course. We are just going to see how it goes and see how well he takes home-schooling and take it from there

    These are some great tips, we have two of the travelling kids suitcases, my two love them!
