Hello Moms,
I am planning to travel to Europe with my two children 3y/o and 10months old, my husband will join us later.
So I really need some suggestions from you moms, about any good diaper bag/travel bag something that I can use during the flight and while visiting around.
I'm gonna have one connecting flight, so any advice on how to keep my kids entertained for 15 hours will be greatly appreciated.
What about travel beds, do you think it's worth to take one? If yes, can you please suggest me one?
Thank you in advance.

What can I do next?

I have 2 small kids and I am a fan of the SkipHop line of bags. I have the Spark which is sold at Target.

A double stroller that is checked at the gate and the car/plane seats. Pack a bunch of airline friendly food (no yogurt, water, or anything like that. Make all sandwiches in advance). Invest in a travel DVD player, if you need to, for the 3 year old and if you buy seats for both kids, you can take on 2 more carry-on items (so pack a big back pack for each with toys/etc they enjoy and will keep them entertained). I found that it works to travel at hours where they'd be more likely to sleep (either really early am or late pm hours). At the counter, ask them for help with your stuff. They'll have someone come and help you schlep the car seats and carry-on across the airport terminals so you don't have to do it yourself.

Have a wonderful trip!

I was recently introduced to a great diaper bag for two children... talk to Rachael and mention that you heard of her from me and there may be a discount.

When packing for the kids, be sure to pack an extra outfit for you! I'm a fan of travel aqua-doodle as well. It's flat and small and can provide minutes : ) of fun.

I like to use a rolling backpack for the plane and pack my regular diaper bag in my suitcase. The rolling backpack is big enough for my portable dvd player, extra clothes, diapers, wipes, snacks, etc. and you can throw it on your back so you have your hands free when going through the airport, or your 3 year old can wheel it if he/she wants to help like a "big" kid. Bring extra diapers. We got delayed one time and I ran out. The gift shops do sell single packs of diapers, but they are expensive! Bring an empty sippy cup. You can fill it with water, milk or juice after you get through security and have it for the plane.
Good luck!
