Response to "A Minimalist's Guide to Traveling With a Toddler"

DON'T! -- though if you feel intent on ignoring my solid advice, TPG has some tips:  

1)  don't overcomplicate their outfits

You may like RenFair, but subjecting your child to your weirdness is cruel.

2)  pack light

This is the only thing I can imagine they mean by "pack light." Hotels are getting stingier with their amenities, so it's smart to bring your own lights, so you don't get charged extra to get one from the hotel. What's better is this exact light is available on eBay right now (click the pic to see)!

3)  rent items at your destination (though not lights, of course!)

From what I hear, there are boys for rent everywhere, particularly in London. You could leave your toddler at home and grab a rent boy only on the days you need one!

4)  bring an old tablet or smartphone

In case you want to strike your toddler with it because your vacation has been ruined with crying and pouting.

5)  bring allergy medications no matter what

Depending how your toddler has been on the trip, though, you don't have to use it on them. EpiPens are expensive!
