Travelling with kids made easy - Are we getting there yet?

(NC) --  As any parent will tell you, travelling with children is never boring. Whether you're in your own car, on train or in a plane, there is always the dreaded fear that something has been forgotten or that something will go wrong.

To help prepare you for your next family vacation, Playtex Infant has tips to keep you, your children and the rest of your travelling companions happy and calm.

Planning your trip:

• Try and book your trip around your children's sleep schedule. If they tend to sleep well early in the afternoon, schedule your departure for nap time.

• When flying or taking a train, book a nonstop trip. Getting off one mode of transportation and rushing to catch another with kids and baggage isn't fun for anyone.

• Try to sit at the back of the plane or train. That way you're near the bathroom, are less likely to disturb other passengers and may receive more help from attendants.

What to pack:

• Make sure you pack extra outfits for everyone, including yourself, in case of spills, accidents or lost luggage.

• Pack drinks and snacks in seal proof, spill proof containers like the Playtex Twist 'n Click snacker. If you're traveling with a baby, bring extra bottles and the new SmartPrep Portable Formula Dispenser for feeding anytime, anywhere.

• Any medication, first aid or diapering supplies you might need such as wipes and adhesive bandages.

• Any toys your kids can't live without, such as their favourite stuffed animal or a special blanket that could make a long trip more tolerable.

By thinking ahead and trying to plan according to your children's schedules and needs, travelling will end up being a more enjoyable experience for everyone.
