In 10 days, Mr Siili, Paxlet and I are hopping in a taxi, a bus, several planes and a car ride to go visit my family in the US. All in all, we’ll be traveling for roughly 25 hours. Mr Siili and I have done it several times before and while it isn’t the easiest, it isn’t so bad. Much better than 30 hours of traveling. However, this will be our first time of traveling this far and long with Paxlet. I have belief in Paxlet that he’ll do just fine and will be a trooper. Mr Siili on the other hand seems to have some reservations and worries. Mostly, I feel that he thinks I am in la-la land when it comes to the trip. (This is the guy who has stressed about getting to our next flight when there was nothing to stress about.)
However, in spite of how wonderful I know Paxlet is going to be on this trip, I’d love any and all tips you have about traveling with a 2 year old. Especially, what types of snacks and foods did you take with you? I know we’ll have some fruit, dried banana chips, raisins, fruit/smoothie pouches, oatmeal pouches and granola/breakfast bars. Mr Siili feels we need some proper food for our boy and Paxlet will NOT eat store bought veggie and meat baby foods in a jar, the easy solution for actual meal-like stuff and not snacks. HELP, please?!
