As you probably know, I am quite a well travelled little boy, and am always sharing travel tips with you. Well, I have some more for you! Here are some general tips for travelling with a baby or toddler.
Pack Your Baby’s Essentials: The first and most important thing that you need to remember while packing for your baby before you travel is not to forget to pack all your baby’s clothing and hygiene essentials. This includes nappies, formula, baby clothes, baby wipes, dummy’s and bottles. You can never pack too many of these baby essentials especially when baby is very new, as you have no idea how many ‘accidents’ they may have!
Check Medication: Before you hop onto your flight with your baby or toddler, make sure that all their vaccinations are up-to-date. Make sure you travel with any essential medications, if any, of your baby. Carrying pain relief such as liquid paracetamol and ibuprofen, and teething gel are a good idea too. Pain relief sachets are handy and can be carried in hand luggage.
Be Psychologically Ready: If you are stressed or anxious, baby will pick up on it so try and relax and plan well in advance to ensure a stress-free and happy journey with your baby. If you can, take little breaks every couple of hours if travelling by car. Let your baby stretch, wiggle, roll over, and even crawl. The moment your baby starts feeling cramped or restricted, he will probably start crying out of frustration. Try and plan your journey with baby’s nap and feed times in mind to avoid further upset and frustration.
If you need a room the night before you fly, or the day you return, don’t forget you can arrange safe and secure accommodation for you and your baby at discounted rates using the Premier Inn Coupons.
Don’t Overdress Your Baby: Last but not least, don’t overdress your baby. Dress him in a vest and soft pyjamas or joggers. You won’t need to worry about the cold getting to your baby, as you can always add extra layers for warmth if needed. Loose clothing like this is ideal for babies it can help you easily go through airport security and when changing nappies in a aeroplane loo! Don’t forget it can be chilly on an aeroplane.
