British Mummy Blogger's Carnival - Travelling With Children

I've been doing lots of travelling lately with the toddler what with finding a house and going back & forth from houses to where I used to live. We've had some right nightmares with the toddler developing travel sickness which isn't helped with food he's eaten or the hot weather. At least twice we've had to stop at a lay by to strip the child, clean his seat and change him. This all got me thinking about a theme for the British Mummy Blogger's Carnival which I was to host, I know I'm not the only parent out there which finds 'travelling with children' a memorable experience! So without further undo I give you the parent blogosphere posts about travelling with children.

The first post I bring you is from Vic over at Glowstars who whilst traveling with Little Mister in the car crashed. Since writing that post I've heard firsthand that the car is now a write off! Oops!

Fancy a island get away with the kids then the Isle Of Wight might be the perfect place for them. Sally & Flea have put together a post on things to do in the Isle Of Wight when you're five.

Ellen shares with us some things she learnt from her trip to Haven Holiday's Burnham-on-Sea camp. Check out her photos of her adorable little escape artist!

Going on a plane with your little one this summer? Melaina shares with us a cool gadget called Cares which helps to keep little ones in their plane seat and means no carrying on heavy car seats.

Or how about the train? Erica travels 7 hours (Eeekkk) with her little one and had the great idea of creating a train bag which is filled with lots of different items to keep her boy entertained on that rather long train journey.

Be prepared is the key criteria from Lunchbox World who talks about how times have changed when it comes to travelling with kids.

More Then Just A Mother's Flying High post has me rethink the possibility of taking my toddler on a plane anytime soon.

Where as Rachel over at Midlife Singlemum has some fantastic advice and tips about travelling alone with a baby or a toddler on a plane.

Nightmare for Frankie with her hellish trip which saw her travelling alone with a 5 month old.. Another eeekkk!

Baby on Board over at Chez Spud and no she hasn't got a bun in the oven, she's ranting about those baby on board signs found attached to most cars.

Off to the beach with the little ones? Then Tilly from two become four shares with you some great tips for keeping safe in the sun this summer.

A Scandinavian Sojourn talks about her hatred of fellow passenger's attitudes towards you when your flying with small children. She also includes so fantastic tips on flying with children.

I'm not sure what was the worst thing about Roxy's car trip, having to listen to Bieber or the fact her friend had been driving with the parking brake on? I'll let you decide!

What do you do when your 2,500 miles from home and you're still bottle feeding the child and need to sterilize bottles? Well Cheshire Mum made a vlog about sterilising in a hotel.

Mellow Mummy shows you that summer holidays with babies & toddlers don't have to break the bank and gives you some fab advice from picking up guide books for free from the library instead of buying them and taking your own car seat when hiring a car to save money.

And if after all that travelling you're hungry why not pop over to Red Ted Art who has a step by step guide on how to make Helly Kitty Cake Pops.
