This sounds so familiar! My bunch is small (2 boys, 19 months apart), but we are very rigid about sleep because both of them melt down/tantrum/etc. without proper sleep/naps.

The thing is, they will be miserable and therefore make everyone else on vacation miserable if we don't pay attention to their sleep.

It does make us difficult visitors, though!



We travel with two pretty regularly (I think they've been on about 8-9 trips in their 1.5 and 2 years of life)....The secret is definitely definitely NOT hotel rooms. Condos. With more than one room. WITH!MORE!THAN!ONE!ROOM! You have to. For sanity. And if we could have a room for each kid, we so would, but it's not really possible most of the time!

Where on earth are you staying with all those bedrooms? That sounds great! Not a baby buncher YET but I love your blog.


Yes! Do tell! Where are you going? My parents were ultimate baby bunchers - they did it again and again - eight of us in total, 15 years apart, and we love to all get together with our own kids now - sleeps 40 sounds perfect!


boy can we relate to this. add to it that my husband is the world's lightest sleeper. UHG.

Ha! This is funny, as I am currently up to my eyebrows in packing for a vacation!! I have two step kids, 5 and 8 and then my two amazing little boys are 4 months and 17 months. So, I am definately a baby buncher. Follow your website all the time. I am very apprehensive about where everyone will sleep. I am hoping for a walk in closet too! We travel a lot to visit our families, but this vacation is going to be interesting!! Good luck!

i have figured out that i was blessed with strong sleepers... i had my concerns at first, cause #1 used to be a light sleeper, but they share a room with ease now... our problem with vacations is that neither one will sleep if we are in the room.. it's like they have parent radar or something... if we aren't there, sleeping all night long... if we are, everyone is up a couple times a night... ugh

Yes, Jess - I agree that more than one room has been the secret to our success in the past, too. We are done squishing into one hotel room - we require one of those suite-type places with a mini kitchen as well. It's just WAY easier...

And Maggie, we're off to Tennessee - http://www.hiddenmountain.com/river_lodge.html

I can give you full scoop on it in a few weeks!


Dont' forget your white noise machine, either!


(Just turned four, almost 2 and a half, and ten months. Nobody's a great sleeper.)

We stay home. We're going to a beach house with friends in August, and I don't know what the heck we'll do.

The last time we traveled with the older two they shared a room and didn't wake/keep each other up like we thought. I think the key is to be flexible - if that's possible. Maybe someone in your family would be willing to switch rooms with you if the first scenario doesn't work. Talk about it before you settle in. Sometimes just having the option to move can be a load off your mind.


Blech! Yes, this year we are staying home. No one seems to understand why all 3 of our kids can't share a bedroom- the 4-year old goes to bed an hour later and gets up an hour earlier than her siblings (13 month old twins), and they still get up multiple times at night!

And frankly, it's not much of a vacation for DH and me if we have to share a bedroom with the kids.
