How To Survive A Hotel Stay With A Toddler

Who doesn't love to travel? Traveling is relaxing and fun, but when you add a toddler to the mix it can be a little less relaxing. Even at your hotel, where you should be able to relax, it can be a little difficult. Most toddlers want to be on the go and are always curious, so keeping your youngster from getting bored in your hotel room is going to take a little bit of effort on your part. See below for helpful tips on how to survive your hotel stay with a toddler.

Invest In A Larger Room

If your toddler has a harder time falling asleep, you may want to think about getting a larger room or even a suite. A suite with more than one room will give you some extra space so your toddler can sleep in his or her room and you can have your time in another room.

Bring Comforts Of Home

Bring your a handful of your toddler's favorite toys. You can have him or her pack a small bag full of their favorites, just be sure to keep track of those items. If your child can't fall asleep without their favorite bear, you should probably pack that item with you. If there's a favorite blanket, or even a small musical item that helps your child sleep, bring these items as well.

Pack Snacks

Be sure to pack snacks such as crackers, fruit snacks or trail mix for your child to snack on when in the room. Be sure to pack drinks such as water or juice boxes that you can keep in a small cooler. You can find take-and-toss cups if your toddler needs a drink cup. These cups can just be thrown out when finished with them, so you don't have to worry about washing them.

Use The Amenities

If the hotel has a pool, take the kids for a swim. They'll have a blast and it'll wear them out so they will hopefully fall asleep without any problems. Take advantage of any free buffet meals at the hotel to help save you some money. Your hotel room may have a DVD player, so be sure to bring your child's favorite movie with you as well.

Staying in a hotel with a toddler doesn't have to be too stressful. Just be sure to bring some of the comforts of home with you to help keep your toddler comfortable during your stay. If you're looking for a hotel to stay at, try Mt. Laurel La Quinta Inn.
