7.Think About Reserving a Home

If you have a whole family going on vacation, consider renting a home instead of a hotel room. This can give you a more comfortable space. You could give AirBnB a try.

8.Purchase Quality Gear

From your luggage and carry-on bags to your kid’s equipment like strollers and travel crib, make sure you purchase quality equipment. You do not want to arrive at your destination with everything broken down.

9.Try To Keep Some Sort of Routine

Sightseeing and playing in the water all day can be too much for little ones. Try to keep to a consistent nap and feeding schedule. You don’t want to end up out to dinner with an exhausted and cranky child.

Just put a dime sized amount of shampoo into the sink and do a quick hand wash.The kids love to help out with this one. Wring it out, and hang to dry.

Happy Travels!
