Traveling Toddler Review & Giveaway

Traveling By Air With A Toddler???

Your baby has transitioned from his infant carrier to a bigger bulkier convertible carseat and you are planning on traveling....Panic Sets In!!!
How are you going to carry everything & navigate through the airport???

I am excited to share a product with you that is going to change the way that you travel with a toddler... FOREVER!
(Or at least until they are no longer a toddler)


When our son transitioned to an upright carseat we were overwhelmed with trying to figure out how we were going to navigate through airports and ensure that our son's carseat would reach our destination with us. So we searched & searched and ended up  purchasing Traveling Toddler.

Traveling Toddler Turns Your Suitcase Into An Instant Stroller!
We Love It!  
We have already used it on several trips and each time we use it we are stopped by countless other families wanting to know all about it and where they can get one.  So just be prepared to be the envy of all the other parents traveling with toddlers that aren't traveling with "Traveling Toddler!"

Why It's A Must-Have:

Traveling Toddler is a T-shaped strap with 3 D-rings that utilizes your convertible carseat's latch system to secure your carseat to a rolling suitcase creating an Instant Stroller!

It allows you to push or pull a piece of luggage, your child's carseat and your child....all with one hand.

The strap is small. So you can just put it in your purse or carry-on when you are not using it.

It's Super Affordable!
Priced at about $15 & well worth every cent!

I can't imagine why anyone would pay $90 for a similar product that is on the market.  Especially, because this other product is way bulkier and can't be easily stored like Traveling Toddler can.
I also can't understand why anyone would buy a separate carseat, one of those expensive carseats with pop-out wheels that are designed for air travel, when they can utilize their own carseat for airtravel.

Let me go a step further and share the Instructions for using Traveling Toddler with you to answer any questions that you may still have about how it works & also share a couple of tips with you.

If you are planning to gate check your carseat or use it on the airplane you will need to disconnect Traveling Toddler to go through the TSA security checkpoint..... but if you practice connecting and disconnecting it before you travel it will be a piece of cake.
We use our Traveling Toddler on our rolling carry-on bag and as long as the bag is full it works great!
We gate-check our carseat (as our son is still under 2 & flies free) and reconnect it in the jetway once we land.
Please note:  Do not gate check your carry-on bag if you are going to want to use it with your Traveling Toddler at an airport where you are catching a connecting flight....the airlines will not give you your gate-checked carry-on until you reach your destination due to security restrictions (at least that has been our experience.)

I really can't believe that more families are not using Traveling Toddler.  I have to believe that it is just because they have not heard of it yet....
Precisely the reason I felt the need to post this review & get the word out!

Need One Right Away???

Want one but don't need it right away? 
Then read on.....
