How does your child do when you travel?

Do they adjust well? Do they get cranky or have a hard time sleeping?

  • My son does great! As long as we have juice and some snacks he does very well! He is 4 now but has traveled a lot in his life! Between multiple 12 hour car rides and 3, 10+ plane rides. He sleeps really well when traveling as well!

  • my older one does great (sleeps most of the way). The younger one I don't know about yet since he's only been on short drives.

  • Mine do awesome but they have had an extensive amount of traveling at early ages. We travel quite a bit between Washington, Florida and Illinois.

  • Luckily, our kiddos do GREAT! We take alot of breaks and have plenty of movies to watch and I pack plenty of (healthy) snacks for them to eat.

  • My DD is 2 and she's been traveling in car and plane rides since she was 3 months old. She does awesome in car rides...we went from VA to TX. And on the plane..well...depends on the time of day it is. Mornings are good bc she's usually in a great mood, but if its around her nap time. Oh lord. But I usually have a seat open next to me so she just sits there and plays with the buckle forever and colors lol.

  • Our kids alsways did great. If we traveled several times zones away then they had to adjust over a few days to the difference, just like the rest of us.
