ct my children when they are in the car. I wanted to share with you from Safety 1st consumer safety experts on "How to Survive the Holiday with Kids!
- Avoid peak travel days- Try to avoid busy days like the night before thanksgiving traffic is always horrible. Try not drive for fly before or right after the actual holiday. Those days will be the absolute busiest days to travel.
- Prepare your children for the trip you are taking. When traveling or attending a party it can be overwhelming for younger children. Letting your children know that their is traveling or parties planned will help them prepare for the trip and not become overwhelmed.
- Are we there yet is the famous question while traveling. To help avoid that dreaded phrase an hour into six hour trip reserve a bag just for the kids, include books, toys, diapers a change of clothes and snacks. If you have an iPad or smartphone prepare kids friendly apps to help pass the time. Make sure you have wipes, bags and hand sanitizer for accidents. The Safety 1st Car Door Sanitation Station is a great solution.
- Car Seats – If you are flying check to make sure your car seat is FAA certified. If it’s not clearly labeled contact the manufacture. For parents with older children the Safety 1stBoostAPack can double as a kid survival kit, it’s FAA certified, and will fit in the plane overhead bin.
