Tips on Travelling with Baby
We do not have to cancel or delay vacation just because we have a baby. We can take our baby to join the vacation all the time as long as we can make sure to prepare special luggage for him or her. The luggage must be loaded with their essentials. We must also protect our baby from foreign disease. Although travelling with baby is something challenging but when we can make sure his or her safety, it will be a great experience.
What We Have to Pack for Our Baby
When packing clothing for our baby, it is necessary to pack one outfit and one extra outfit per day. Preparing some pajamas for him may also useful. Depending on the destination and location of the vacation, we as parents must pack weather-appropriate clothing for our baby. If we travelling with baby to somewhere cold, we should prepare and bring articles of warm clothing, including mittens, hats, snowsuits and boots. If we want to travel to a warm place, we need to pack hats, sunglasses, sunscreen and light clothing.
The essential things we must remember and must be well prepared are such diapers, baby wipes, diaper cream, dishes, bibs, bottles, eating utensils, snacks and small cup. Fit is needed; we can bring baby blankets so that he or she can be wrapped up and swaddled to calm him or her during the busy days. It is useful to bring infant car seat, even if we travel by plane or bus because it helps our baby gets a safe place to sleep.
Ensuring from Foreign Disease
When we are travelling with baby, especially to other country, it is important to make sure that our baby is protected against foreign disease. We need to talk to our baby’s doctor about our destination. Doctor will help to decide if there are any extra vaccinations are needed for our baby.
It will be much easier to feed our baby during the travel if he she is still breastfeed. When travelling with baby on plane, mother may wish to buy a seat that gives enough privacy during nursing. If it is not possible, a nursing cover-up blanket can be brought and used. If we travel using car, we need to make regular stops to make sure that the baby is well fed. If our baby is bottle-feed, we have to bring enough bottles. If the journey takes a long amount of time, we have to bring enough bottles until we reach the place without washing. Bringing extra cans of milk will help ensure that our baby always has enough food during the travel. Other supplies are need for older babies. While it seems convenient to stop during vacation for takeout but it is not always good for our baby’s health. We can pack non-perishable foods to ensure that our baby get enough food during the journey. Foods that we are packed should include those that can be consumed with no preparation; in case our baby becomes hungry while in the bus, car or plane. .
