CoolMomPicks' recommends our Inflatable Travel Bed as "Don't Leave Home Without" travel pick! "Loved my ginormous collapsible playpen when the kids were little. Loved. Though I admit to doing a happy dance when I no longer had to lug that thing around to hotels and overnights at the grandparents."
40 tips for a road trip with kids
Traveling with young kids made easy: Put an entire outfit (including undies and hair accessories) in a ziploc bag. One bag per day. When you get to the hotel, they can pick one per day. Huge time saver! I actually pack my own clothes this way when traveling for conventions (keep them safe from leaky cosmetic containers too).
