traveled to Manila for our Postcrossing EB, with my little man

Traveling with the little ones can really be so much stressful + can take much from your energy. Not only will it be extra difficult moving about with a kiddo that is just a bagful of energies, but you will also have to carry a bagful of baby + children essentials, too.

That is why it is best to be Β prepared when traveling with your little ones. Here are a few tips to ace it without losing your patience or your grip!

  1. Don’t bring the entire house with you. Mums tend to go overboard + pack whichever items come to mind so they end up with a bigger baggage compared to what’s originally planned. Learn the art of organized packing and make sure to bring what’s only necessary to avoid excess baggage.
  2. To keep the tantrums at bay, keep the little ones full by bringing lots of food they can munch on, especially on long trips, and keep them entertained by packing a few toys + books, too.
  3. The little children should always be in a car seat, if you do not have a car seat {like me}, make sure you sit beside your kiddo or carry him on your lap in the duration of the trip. Sitting in front of the car is also a big no no!
  4. Make sure the little ones take their nap prior to your trip or have them sleep in the car while traveling, that way the will have enough energy to enjoy wherever it is that you are going.
  5. A few must-have’s in your baby bag: an extra change of clothes for your little one, baby wipes, extra diapers, bottles + milk, his very own water bottle.

My little man is slowly growing up + little by little we manage to travel with only too few accoutrements, that can fit my little mailman bag. Hopefully when he gets much bigger, I’ll be able to get rid of carrying bulky + over-sized carry-alls! I will tell you more about our recent trip to Manila next time πŸ™‚

Anyway, on another note, WBFCΒ {which this blog has participated on several occasions}Β has a new home + a new host. Mommy Rubz passed the torch to sis Ane just a few days ago. To start the ball rolling we are back to square one + following each other’s blog via GFC {mine is just somewhere there in my sidebar, so I hope you will indulge me ^_^}. Do leave a comment to let me know you dropped by + I shall be delighted to return the favor.

      WBFC is not always GFC following, it actually varies from week to week + I think it will be beneficial for your blog. Mine is in wp, by the way πŸ™‚

    Oh, another postcard enthusiast from Pinas πŸ™‚ Hello there!

    I used to be a postcrosser for a long time. At the time I started, we were only about 10 postcrossers in Pinas yata. Nakakatuwang marami nang postcrossers dito sa atin. But I’ve stopped with the exchanges and decided to channel my resources to another thing. But don’t get me wrong, I’m still a postcard addict, I still looooove postcards.

    I see you are completing your 50 states US map cards collection. Good luck! I think I have completed mine. Also, I’m into world heritage sites pero di ko pa na-kumpleto eh hehehe.
