Traveling with sick kids is hard. There’s no other way around it. While I would never intentionally travel when one of my kids is sick, sometimes illnesses just hit us when we’re already on the road. There was that time that the stomach bug hit while in the TSA security line at the airport. (They opted not to send the bag of vomit through the screener.) Another time, a persistent cough kept everyone up all night during a weekend away. There was even a time when the whole family came down with a fever. We have definitely had some times when sick just got real.
Although you can’t predict when traveling with sick kids will occur, you can prepare for it in case it does. Having the right products on hand is crucial. It is important to know which medicine is right for your kids. Be sure to read the labels and give the proper medicine in the right amounts. And of course consult a medical professional for urgent care or specific questions. To help get you prepared for whatever summer travel might bring your way, enter this super easy giveaway below!
