Alright ya’ll… I think my TTSD (toddler-traveling stress disorder) has had a chance to wear off and I’m in the right mind to write this post ?
Kidding… kind of. It honestly wasn’t that bad (thanks to all the handy tricks I’m going to share below!) but this last weekend I when I went to Montana to visit a friend was the first time I’ve ever traveled alone with P, and that was a little tiring. It’s crazy how much I’ve taken for granted the ability to ask Theron to keep an eye on P while I use the restroom, or eat my sandwich, or check my text messages. For 72 full hours this weekend, I was it. I attended to her every need. Watched her every move. Dealt with every cry and dirty diaper and spit up incident. Fed her every time she was hungry. Packed up her diaper bag every time we left the house. It was a lot. I honestly don’t know how single parents do it. It definitely put things in perspective for me.
But that all aside, I really do have some awesome tips, tricks, and products that made my traveling experience with P way smoother. Check them out below!

This list certainly isn’t exhaustive. Just a few things that helped me on my recent trips with P. Mamas who’ve traveled with kiddos, what are your tips and tricks? I’d love to hear!
