Traveling to Seattle with the Kids? We’ve got you covered!
Planning your family vacation to Seattle can be easily managed by taking a deep breath and following these simple tips and tricks for travel.
Packing for Seattle:
Pro traveler tip: keep a supply of diapers and wipes in your main bag and the rest in a carry on. These days, you should assume you will be delayed on your flight!
You know what your child needs as far as their essentials go (diapers, bottles, formula, and medication, for example). A little trick to keep your child entertained during the flight is give them their own smaller bag (light and easily carried) that is full of fun activities to pass the time. Coloring books, reading materials, crayons, a disposable camera, and stickers are all kid-friendly activities that will entertain for hours. Plus, many little ones will find the idea of their own bag thrilling in itself.
Pro traveler tip: be sure that you are the one packing this bag, especially for younger children! Offer it as a special surprise just before you leave for the airport, already stocked.
Boarding the Plane to Seattle:
Arriving in Seattle:
If you need an item over than these two basics, we can work with baby rental companies–we recommend Happy Little Traveler–to have items waiting for you in your condo on arrival!
Pro traveler tip: Write your mobile phone number on your child’s arm or tummy with a permanent marker. It is super helpful if you get separated from your child. For kiddos with sensitive skin, try the same idea on a strip of masking tape on the inside of their jacket.
