Toddlers are a tough crowd. They know what they want, but can’t always communicate it. They can be picky eaters, throw tantrums in public and be so cute you can’t resist them.

Traveling with toddlers poses its own special challenges, whether it’s finding a way to keep them busy on long car rides, finding an appropriate potty stop, feeding them healthy snacks, or making sure they’re as safe as they can be.

On Sept. 26 at 9pm ET, we’ll be sharing our funniest stories and best tips for traveling with toddlers and we’ll give away two Britax car seats, worth approximately $300 each. As always, there are several ways to enter to win, all listed below.
