In the last 2 years, we have done countless road trips, train rides, 10 flights, and have taken our little one to 6 countries, you can do the math on how many hotels etc. we have stayed in. Hotels are so badly equipped for travelling families, and it drives me crazy. These are some of the things I wish hotels would have on hand:
A bumbo! It is one of those things that I thought would be useless, but in fact, it was the handiest thing, way too bulky to pack, but I can’t figure out why hotels can’t have these on hand, they can be sanitized between uses.
A couple of strollers.
have you ever broken your stroller while travelling, and have not been able to figure out where to buy another one? Well, that has happened to us, and hotel staff are usually a little useless when asking about baby stuff (unless you are in the U.S and they just point you in the direction of a Target)
Then there is a high chair. My little man wakes up at the crack of dawn. Have you ever tried to feed a young one in a hotel room at 6am?
After a long travelling day, why don’t they ever have a package of essentials, like milk, baby soap?
Or what about emergency diapers? I had a friend arrive at a destination very late, lost luggage and a 6 month old. The stores were closed, and they were out of diapers and wipes (this was due to a 7 hour delay on top of an emergency land. What do you do in that situation?
What about laundry service? Every trip we have taken in the last 2 years, has meant several changes, and me attempting to hand wash soiled outfits. So, why don’t they ever have a washer and dryer for parents?
What do you wish a hotel had on hand for you?
