THERE’S nothing quite as stressful as trying to travel with kids.
You’re trying to keep them entertained and close by while also working out where you need to be heading.
Luckily one savvy mum has shared a clever travel hack – and it means you can leave the pushchair at home.
Racquelle, known online as @ahomeofshalom, regularly shares parenting tips with her 1,480 followers.
In a recent Instagram reel, the savvy mum is seen transforming her carry-on case into a pushchair, meaning her son can ride on top – and all you need is a hoodie.
“Best hack I’ve come up with as a mom.
“Baby carriers are bulky to travel with and annoying when you get on the plane to take off, hold child, and stow.
“Strollers are great for the before or after but such a hassle to get through security. Plus, there is a high probability the airline will break it or take 12 years to unload it.
“This method came to me on our way to AZ this past weekend and I couldn’t wait to share because it was SO helpful!!
“Next time you travel with a little one do this! They love it and it makes your life so much easier.”
During the Instagram reel, Racquelle shows how she turns her carry-on suitcase into a pushchair for her son.
She stretched his hoodie around the pull-up handle and zips it, meaning he stays on top of the case while rolling it.
Fans loved the quick and easy hack, with the video gaining more than 119,600 likes and 5.3 million views.
In the comments, Racquelle’s followers thanked her for sharing, with one writing: “Now that’s a travel hack.”
Another said: “I would 100% do this with my child, and leash any others.”
One shared their own idea, adding: “I’d turn the kid around and zip the jacket up the kids back. That way they stay warmer and they can’t unzip it, and it’s a more comfortable ride.”
