Best tips for travelling with a 1 year old


Recommended Posts

I will be travelling with my 8 month old in a couple weeks and the best tip I found so far was to get magnetic hooks and cheap blackout curtains to make a separate dark sleep space for the little one. The cabin ceiling (and walls) are metal so you can hang the curtains up. I will be trying this myself soon as I expect we will have some earlier nights in the cabin and hopefully this helps our son sleep without having my husband and I sitting in a pitch dark room lol. The hooks can also be used on the wall for extra storage.

I am looking forward to cruising with my 1.5 year old G'son too! The first thing I double checked was what pool area for non potty trained kids. Not all ships, even in the same cruise line, have dedicated space. I made sure our cabins are close to D/SIL so we could be close to help out. I made sure that we both have balcony cabins so adults could enjoy ocean views or CP balcony when he naps. Hoping we both have a fabulous time & make sweet memories!
