• The best day of the week to fly is Wednesday. Friday flights are most often delayed followed closely with Thursday flights.

• While traveling wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing. Dress in layers. Younger children need to have an extra set of clothes readily available for spills and accidents.
• Parents and kids will benefit from a walk about the plane several times during the flight. Adults need to stimulate circulation, and kids, well it’s just another reason to explore.
• Avoid dehydration while flying–drink lots of water. Bring a water bottle for each member of the family. Water helps fight jet lag, cabin dryness and dehydration caused by the stress of travel. Caffeine, colas, salty snack foods, and alcohol contribute to dehydration. Sugary sodas and snacks can cause blood sugar swings, leaving one feeling tired and headachy.

• While visiting sites leave travel tickets, passports, and extra money in the hotel safe. Use a lightweight money pouch that is concealed under clothing to keep your credit cards and money safe –leaving  hands free to juggle diaper bags, kids, and snacks.
• When eating in sit-down restaurants with kids, immediately order bread or an appetizer to snack on while deciding on a meal selection. Then place food order as soon as possible.
• Options to eating in restaurants with children are to rent a condo or suite with kitchenette; order take-out food from a restaurant or deli and have a picnic; or fix prepared foods in the microwave, if available in the hotel/motel room.
