With the summer just around the corner and upcoming family vacations underway, I started thinking about some of the best ways to travel with kids and wanted some advice. I knew my friend Alecia, a travel enthusiast and blogger, would be the perfect person to reach out to. She is full of travel tips and inspiration. She has three kids, so I knew she could also relate to my struggles with trying to plan and prepare for trips, as well as trying to manage the family while on trips. So I asked her several questions and happy to share the knowledge with you!
I recently had to take a business trip to Chicago and there was a lot of thought behind getting ready for it. I feel like as a moms, we are always on – Planning, Prepping and Delivering. Well getting ready for this trip was no different, and so I went into full planning mode. How am I going to pump while away? Where will I store the milk? How will I get it back home? These were just some of the questions I had. I had a car adapter so I could use the rental car if needed to pump, the hotel had a refrigerator for storage, and I had a way to keep the milk cold – so I felt like I had my basis covered. So on I went.
