What to pack in your Backpack Mommies when traveling with toddlers?

Let me start of by telling you how terrified I was to travel to Jordan with my toddlers (god bless them), but the idea was really worrying me. Before a week of my travel, I made an intensive research of what I should pack with me on the airplane. But the best advices were given to me by a close friend, who has good experience in traveling with toddlers.

First of all and most importantly travel with a single backpack which you should carry moms. No need for a purse or handbag in this situation and definitely no small bags for the toddlers ( as you will end up carrying all of them). Try to find a backpack that is easy to carry and comfortable on your shoulders. In the picture below is the backpack I carried, it had enough space to pack everything and yet it wasn’t heavy at all.


Second, pack a change of cloth  for each toddler alone in a ziplock bag(including undergarments, socks,wipes and diapers for the little ones). Why ziplock bag, and this is one of the best advices my friend gave me, incase of a spill of water or milk the cloth stay unharmed.



Third, prepare an activity bag/folder for each toddler. I personally included their favorite story books, coloring papers, small pencil case with colors, empty papers for different activities ( for sticking stickers, drawing and scribbling). And to tell you the truth, this activity bag was a life saver when visiting friends, restaurants and checking out new places. I would give it to my kids, and they would spend hours coloring, drawing etc. And yes pack extra coloring papers, colors and stickers for the whole trip.

Everything packed and ready 

Third, please pack the necessary medicines and a thermometer, as many airlines don’t provide medicines aside from Panadol tablets.

Finally, don’t forget to pack little snacks for your little ones.
