My son and I travel a lot between Utah and Idaho. The trip is about 5 1/2 hours give or take. We make this trip every few weeks. My son was terrible at traveling and it was miserable. He’s 18 months old, so, despite everyone telling me to keep him rear facing until he’s 4 or whatever it is, I flipped him around to forward facing. Want to guess what happened? That’s right. He’s a freaking angel ... More
Hey ladies and gentlemen, my husband and I are planning a trip for my (will be three by this summer) son. He’s very attentive and has loads of excitement. To those who’ve been or have taken their little ones, What do you guys recommend? Universal Studios or Disneyland? Which one has more for a three year old to do or explore. Thank you
Taking my almost 4yr old twins on an outdoorsy trip with my family. Planning a few family friendly easy hikes while we are there. Any advice on taking kids this age hiking? I’m sure they will make a good portion of it walking themselves ... though I foresee a lot of time spent carrying them. They are probably too big for those hiking carrier backpacks right??
Need some help. My husband and I are separating. We live far away from our families (different countries) so I am trying to plan our next vacation (my daughter and I) with my family but don’t know what to do with my in laws. Don’t really want to stay with them...

We will be traveling from ca to Hawaii in April with a 2 yr old and 9 yr old that have never been on a plane. We will have family with us but I still want my kids to be as comfortable as I can make them any advice/tips?
I am a stay at home mom and in need of a break as I am the primary caregiver for my child. When we last went on vacation over a year ago, I suggested to my husband that we share some tasks such as taking turns to feed dinner, going to the beach with our kid etc so that We both could get some Me time on vacation. My husband is super nice but clueless about taking the initiative to do baby-chores... More
When was the first time your kiddo took a trip without you? My MIL has been insisting she take our 2 year old to California (1.5 hour flight) to visit my brother in law for a weekend..... I don’t know how I feel about it?? Part of me knows of course he’d have fun at the beach all day, but then that distance is kinda far without momma in a strange place.
My daughter is almost 14m and still takes a bottle to sleep - 2 bottles total a day since she’s down to 1 nap. I’ve been wanting to start to wean her off but we just decided to take our first family vacation. It’ll be a 6hr flight and her first time on the plane. When we leave she will be almost 15m and we are going for a month. I’m torn on keeping her on the bottle and weaning when we get back... More

Does anyone have any good tricks for helping a toddler to sleep in the car? My LO uses a forward facing carseat and is small for her age. She has no problem falling asleep in the car, but can only sleep for about 20 min before she wakes up crying due to neck pain. I have tried a small neck pillow, a rolled up blanket and a refular pillow. We are not often in the car for hours on end but we have... More
My daughter has been showing signs of potty training readiness for a few weeks now. She’s even peed and pooed on the potty a few times. I want to potty train her but am worried since we have an international trip coming up in 3 weeks. We’ll be out for 6 weeks with a few plane trips and road trips. With the jet lag, change in environment and new people around her, I’m worried that if I train her... More
