  • Traveling with small children?

    by kmom Written Aug 18, 2009

    Luggage and bags: We all know that traveling with small children can be tricky. If you want to avoid bringing everything with you that your baby or toddler might need when they are away from home, consider renting baby gear. Baby equipment rental companies are available across Canada, the US and even into Europe and beyond. Many, like Parentals in Winnipeg, rent car seats, full-sized cribs, strollers and basically anything else you might need for your baby when you are away from home. Although it is best to reserve what you need as soon as you know your travel plans, you might be able to get items last minute.

    I rent cribs and car seats when I travel with my kids. The cribs help my kids sleep more soundly when they are away from home and those convertible car seats are so big and bulky to travel with, it is so much more convenient to have them delivered to the airport when I arrive.

    I hope this travel tip helps some parents!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you come in the summer, you should bring shorts, sandals, tshirts, a swim suit, and towels. For winter warm clothing, mits, boots, toque, ect.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bug spray. Almost all accomodations are located near malls, so if you leave anything behind you can buy it there.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you come here in summer, bring some mosquito lotion (expecially if it has been raining).

    If you visit in winter, in Winnipeg it is allowed to wear a scarf, mitts and toque (see even the BSB's wear toques). In Calgary if you wear a toque, you are branded a country hick.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Winnipeg Summers are VERY HOT
    Winnipeg Winters are VERY COLD

    Many people think that Winnipeg is under a five feet of snow year round, but it isn't. Don't bring a parka for the summer!

    For the winter, get a parka, a tuque, gloves, a scarf, and boots. There can be large gusts of wind in Winnipeg, so the temperature can often seem lower than it is. (We call it a WINDCHILL)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In the winter (Nov-Apr.) bring a very warm jacket, gloves, a toque might not be a bad idea, whatever, just bring appropriate gear for extreme cold. It gets very cold in Jan and Feb (-35 C) not including the wind.

    In the summer it is quite the opposite it can get hot with temps going up to 33 C and higher. For this weather shorts, light shirts, and the like are fine.

    Fall and Spring can be anything in between, but the Red River and its tributaries threaten to flood every spring, making that time of the year wet and cool, with the odd hot day stuck in for good measure.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: In the summer definitely bring insect repellant as the mosquitos can be horrid, sunscreen is also recommended.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you are going in the winter, bring a warm winter jacket, gloves, a scarf and a toque (winter wool hat). Boots are also helpful to navigate thru the snow!
    In summer, temperatures can reach 40 C, so bring shows and a tank top and sunscreen. There can also be extreme summer storms with sudden downpours. Have an umbrella with you in case.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: There are many drug stores where you can pick up just about anything you forgot!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There are many great camping places, but be sure to bring mosquito repllant or you will be bled dry!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In winter bring warm clothing which also combats a windchill. It is not uncommon in winter to have temperatures plumet to -34 degrees Celcius and that is without the windchill. In summer have mosquitoe repellent with Deet and sun protection because it can reach plus 34 C.
