Shortly after I became pregnant with my first son – the OB told me, “When you have kids – travel is what you do with the kids, and vacation is what you do without.” Hideous cold unfeeling cow I thought then – now? Not so much. Now I think you marvelous insightful woman – should you not have sought a different career path, like life counselor, spiritual advisor or 0800 psychic?
I love my children I truly do and they are wonderful, thoughtful, energetic boys. Which means when it comes to travel – which we do frequently, we have to contain their energy and enthusiasm in a small crowded space. Which often can be a challenge.
With each of my sons, long distance travel started at 6 weeks of age…. and hasn’t let up from there. Throughout out journeys I’ve learned a thing or two from experience and even more from other travelling Mums and Dads. Come share your experiences with others and learn new tips about Travelling with Kids at our next #MumsNight.
As an extra special treat we’ve been given some giveaways to share with our #MumsNight guests. Because what’s good for babies – isn’t necessarily the best for older children we have two age specific giveaways featured below.
We’ll be sharing tips, personal stories and tools to help you have fun, stay safe/sane while travelling with kids.
Please join us on Twitter from 8:30pm -9:30 pm BST Monday May 7th.

When travelling with babies – especially when we stayed in hotels, one of our biggest challenges was how to bathe baby while on the go – so imagine my delight when we found this FlexiBath collapsible, foldable – toss in your suitcase baby bath! Amazing.
