This way, you wouldn’t have to worry about “supplies” running out. For example, it’s useful to have another shirt within reach should a spill occur.
Take everyone to the bathroom before your flight or ride, and see if a diaper change is in order.
Book an appointment with your doctor in advance. Inform him of your destination and travel plans, so he can give you proper medical advice (and shots, if needed).
Always have bottles of safe drinking water with you. Ensure that the kids drink often to avoid dehydration.
Look for activities the kids will love, and let them choose the ones they’d like to do. Don’t be too strict with your schedule; allow time for fun, spur-of-the-moment stops.
