DW- Bringing your toddler? Whose done/doing it? Tips?

Recommended Posts



We went the baby route first - now we have a 2 year old that will be coming with us! We're heading to the Mayan Riviera - resort to be determined.


The idea in theory seemed great, until I'm now trying to pick a resort and thinking of all the things you must think about when you have a toddler! Both sets of grandparents are coming so that will help us out with babysitting a bit.


I have a million things I'm wondering about - one of the biggest being how do you share a room with a sleeping toddler? I've thought about maybe bringing an extra sheet and trying to make a room divider. I just don't think she will sleep in the room with someone else in view. She is very independent and likes her space lol


Thanks for any advice :-)

Hey Terra, our inlaws brought their toddlers down and the hotel (Dreams) brought them cribs in the room - really nice ones. I'd see if your hotel does this.

Terra my nephew came to my wedding he was 14 mos old at the time. the resort provided a crib. they did have a little bit of a hard time trying to get him to sleep with them in the room. But what they eventually started to do was when they put him to bed they would go out on the patio close the curtains so he couldnt see them and wait maybe a half hour to an hour until he fell asleep. they would have a couple of drinks out there while waiting. they did have my il's to babysit so they could go out for dinner by themselves a few times or hang out late. it worked out pretty good for them.


they were really worried about the plane ride. you didnt mention it in your post but just in case your concerned what really helped them is bringing a portable DVD player, the flight was about 4 hours long and my nephew was so into his shows that he didnt make a peep the whole time.

I brought along two girls who where 18-20 months old to my wedding in Riviera Maya. It actually went quite well! We stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe and they really cater to the little ones. The pools have shallow areas where they were able to walk around and play without us having to constantly hold them. They LOVED it.

As for the sleeping in the room, we did the balcony trick. Whoever was putting them down for nap would put them in the pack n play/crib thingy and then go out on the balcony with the shade shut. As soon as they were alseep, then they were "free to move about the cabin." But honestly, the balconies are SO nice that they typically just hung out there... and of course they had room service delivered so they just would eat lunch outside with the beautiful views. It worked out very well.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
