I can’t believe I forgot this one but if traveling with babies you must MUST wear tactical pants (or some other combat style pant). Pockets are key when you don’t have easy access to your bag. Alex swears by his tactical pants come the weekend – pockets for bottles, wipes, toys, iPhone, etc. I stupidly decided to let vanity rule the day and wore a skirt to travel in. Yes, I looked cute but no pockets, and as Alex pointed out I look cute in tactical pants too.
The other thing I forgot is that it was so nice traveling to a regional airport in the UK rather than the hell-on-earth that is Heathrow. Not only were the people flying to Scotland friendlier, and less grumpy when faced with twins but Edinburgh International is a compact airport so there was no 10 mile hike to get through immigration, and baggage claim. Bliss.
