Tips and Tricks for Moving With a Toddler

Moving with a toddler is no easy feat. Whether you’re struggling to pack because your child is in the way or your toddler is having a meltdown on the ride to the new house, you need some tips for moving with a kid.

Are you struggling to get your toddler from one house to another?

If you want to make your move less stressful, you’re in luck. Here are some moving tips to help you make the move easier on you and your baby!

Find Help

Whether you hire an extra set of hands to help load up your truck or get friends and family to help you pack, having more people around to move you are bound to make your life easier. Moving with toddlers is hard to handle on your own! The more moving help you can get, the better.

Try to Have One Day Packing Without the Kids

Odds are you’re going to have a lot of packing to get done. Having your toddlers constantly in the way can drain you while you pack. 

Having at least one child-free day can help you get a majority of your packing done without hassle. Hire a babysitter to take them out on the town or drop them off with a relative. Not only can you get things moved faster, but they can have a fun day, too!

Don’t Pack Baby’s Belongings First

You may think that packing up your toddler’s belongings first will make the move smoother, but this is not the case. Your toddler needs something to distract them while you are working on packing up your home. Without their toys and a place to nap, they can make your move a nightmare.

It’s better to leave your toddler’s belongings until the end. That way, you can make the most out of your time while your child is relaxed and happy!

Unpack the Nursery as Soon as Possible

While you should wait to pack your baby’s belongings until last, it should always be the first thing you unload and unpack when you arrive at your new home. Having your child’s toys and other belongings out in this new home will help acclimate them to their surroundings. 

You also need to make sure that you babyproof the room as soon as possible. The last thing you want after moving in is for your toddler to get into something they shouldn’t be touching!

Make Moving With a Toddler a Breeze

Moving with a toddler can be tricky, but with these moving tips, you can get from point A to point B in no time. Remember, if you’re struggling, the best thing you can do is ask for a helping hand from friends and family!
