During our Escapes month on AT:The Nursery, we are posting great photos and tips for traveling with children from our readers. Please check here for all the details. The first twenty submissions posted will receive the official AT bib. Hope to hear from you soon!
Dad Aaron had some great airport tips:
• A lot of airports have playgrounds now . . . the airport website always has a map, we research this ahead of time.
• On shorter haul trips, we try to find flights on airplanes with the 2 seat configuration (just window and aisle). That way we have the entire row to ourselves.
• This trick worked for us twice but it's risky (when 2 adults are travelling with a lapchild): reserve the window and aisle but not the center seat. No one will take that center seat . . .
Favorite child-friendly activity?
Search out the local park and playground.
Your favorite way to make it feel like home?
Go to a place where kids are loved, and travel with other parents with similarly aged children.
Must-have travel item?
It's all about the ergo carrier.
Thank you, Aaron and Salena, for the tips.
Don't forget to send us your favorite family escape!
