• Family membership at your local museum, aquarium or zoo can mean savings at many similar facilities across the country and some internationally. Be sure to bring your membership card with you and always present it for an often free entrance to a number of reciprocating organizations.

• When traveling by plane with an infant, plan on the possible delays and pack extra diapers and formula. An extra outfit for your child, plus an extra top for you can also come in handy.

• Security checks at most U.S. and some international airports require the inspection of shoes. Even the tiniest of shoes need to be removed. Make sure that all family members wear shoes that can easily slip on and off.
• Traveling about with your toddler in a framed back carrier provides a comfy ride with a view, and a convenient carrier for diapers, wipes, and snacks, while leaving your hands free for other tasks.

• By taking advantage of laundry facilities available throughout cities and at most hotels and condos, you’ll be able to pack less clothes and limit your luggage to one-suitcase-per-person.

• When visiting a new city, head for the park. It’s a wonderful way to experience the neighborhood. Your kids will have fun meeting new friends while getting some exercise and fresh air.

• If rain is in the forecast during your travels, be sure to pack the rain gear. Rain coats, pants, and boots will ensure that you and the kids will be able to enjoy the outdoors. A rain cover for your stroller can come in handy.
