Hi all, we're taking our two tots on a trip to South America. Does anyone have any tips for traveling with toddlers (ages1-3)?

Yea not going, with this covid and stuff going around I wouldn’t put my children in danger, but I am sure I am to late to comment. Just you and your children be safe and carefu!!!! 

While not paying for your under-2-year-old to fly is great, having to sit with her on your lap is not. Ask every gate agent and flight attendant you meet multiple times if the flight's full and if they can move people around so your family gets a coveted free open seat. It's well worth the effort if you can make it happen.

Be a mobile mama medical unit, and ALWAYS carry a first aid kit on any trip. I always carry two during travel: a small carry-on version with travel-sized essentials like Band-Aids, Neosporin, adult Tylenol, etc., and then a slightly larger version that goes in my check-in bag with non-travel sized bottles such as children's Tylenol, Benadryl, etc.

Get them vaccinated for the trip, but don't vaccinate and fly! What do diaper blowouts, fevers, and rashes all have in common? They're all usual side effects of routine vaccinations that you do not want to deal with during a travel day. Book vaccinations no closer than one week to upcoming travel to avoid any issues. Hope this helps! :)
