Traveling with your little baby is like traveling with a rock band. It is about tote and carries. My motto is that you have to be prepared. If you are prepared in advance, you and your child will be better prepared for a successful travel experience.
Here are Tips for Traveling with a Baby -
- If you are traveling by plane, reserve a seat that has a bassinet connection and a separate seat for your older child, if necessary. During the pre-boarding phase, have one of the parent board the bassinet or car seat for small children, then lower the plane until it is closer to the moment of takeoff. In this way, the bassinet or car seat is ready to go, but you and your child can use the extra 30 minutes to be active instead of waiting for that time sitting on the crowded plane.
- Prepare with snacks and liquids. Be sure to pack non-perishable food. Keep the baby hydrated because the airplanes are drying up. I also recommend bringing a cup or bottle to suck, something to suck to help relieve air pressure, especially during takeoff and landing.
- Bring a lot of extra clothes and diapers. If you travel by plane, you see your baby in layers that can be removed if your child gets too hot, or if it gets too cold. A cold baby is a crying baby. And remember, whether you are traveling by plane or car, problems can occur, so always have extra attire and diapers nearby and easily accessible.
- Bring the favorite items that your child associates with the dream. Bring your favorite toy, your favorite blanket, and your favorite pillow, so that you feel comfortable and cozy. You want to put things on the board that your baby associates with bedtime, so you can give her directions to help her sleep, instead of giving her sleep medications. And finally, lower the blinds of the plane. In a car, you can use umbrellas to block the light coming out of the windows. All this can help the baby calm down and fall asleep.
- Bring your child's favorite toys and clothes. Be sure to bring only soft toys, anything that has no sharp edges or that can hurt you if there is turbulence. Having your favorite toys with him will help him feel safe and comfortable, and will keep him happily occupied.
- Bring wrapped toys, treats, or activities. I used to wrap small, soft toys for my children, so it took time to open them and keep them busy. A small child, especially, will laboriously focus on what is hidden in a surprise package. This can be an exciting activity for him. Keep these toys in your bag until he starts to get tired or in a bad mood, and you will have something new and exciting to distract him and increase his interest.
- Pack fun items that have to do with the countries or states you are visiting. Bring snacks that are special for your final destination. Tell him stories about the places you go to. Pack a portable DVD or load your iPad with applications or games. Also, include games and storybooks about the countries or states you will be visiting. Therefore, a family trip can become a fun and memorable trip, as well as a teaching moment.
- Try not to travel for more than 6 hours. Children are little people and if they are sitting in a certain place for long periods of time, it is not healthy, as it is for adults. If you are driving, try to plan stops on the road that are safe, public and allow you to walk a little. Do your homework and trace rest stops, restaurants or well-lit shopping centers along your route; so that everyone can get out of the car and so that your baby or toddler does not just sit for hours?
- Consider scheduling trips around your child's sleep time. Your baby can get into his jammies as soon as he or she gets on board an airplane or in a car, and, with his fingers crossed, go to sleep.
- Always sit next to your baby. You are his comfort zone, you are at home with him... mom and dad is everything. So, if you are driving a car, ask one parent to do so while the other sits in the back seat with your child. In this way, you do not have to keep looking back to comfort him, because he will feel safe and secure with you sitting next to him.
- When driving, keep your child interested in music and games. Sing songs, tell stories, makeup, and play a game... the key is to keep him interested. Playing Baroque music can also help calm and calm your child; therefore, keep it at hand so you can reach it when you need it.
- Pack fully charged technology, and do not forget the portable chargers. Be prepared in advance and make sure your tablet and phone are fully charged, and that you have extra chargers available with you on the plane or in the car, in case the batteries run out during your trip.
At the end of the day, whether you are traveling by plane, train, or car, the idea is to make sure you are prepared. Plan well, pack well and program well. Children will be eager for trips if they focus on fun, child-centered adventures. Remember, you are as happy as your less happy baby, so keep in mind the age and needs of your little traveling companion, and everyone can have a good time.
I had faced many problems with writing this blog. But with the help of my mom, I completed this blog very beautifully. My mom shares an experience of Rajasthan tour packages from Delhi by flight when my sis was 1.5 years old.
