Tips for Traveling with an Infant

Traveling with Infant

If there is one thing that I learned from traveling with my two kids when they were babies, it would be that it wasn’t easy to do. There are so many different things that could potentially go wrong it seemed like I was walking on egg shell, as I was trying to avoid any disasters. My sister who recently had a baby went on a trip with her baby by herself and I tried to give her some tips on what she should think about and she was having none of it. When she got back from her trip, I asked her how it was and she said she was never flying anywhere again with her son until he gets older as a lot of things went wrong. If you are looking to take a vacation with an infant, doing these things can help you.

For traveling with an infant, I feel like one of the most important things is to always pack extra of everything. More than likely you have some type of accident, whether it be throw-up or whatever else it may be, so make sure you are prepared for it. When I traveled with my kids, I made sure that I always packed extra outfits for them to wear, brought a lot of wipes and kleenex and whatever else I thought I might need. When it comes to traveling with a baby, I feel like you can never over pack as you don’t want to run out of anything as that will lead to more problems.

Another thing that will help make it easier to travel with your baby is to make sure you get a good night rest the night before. If your baby is anything like mines were and don’t sleep on the plane, you will need to keep them occupied or they will lose it. I remember for my son that as soon as we took off, I needed to carry him up and down the aisle so he didn’t cry. When it comes to your baby crying when flying, I think this is one of the bigger things parents are most afraid of. You don’t want to drive everyone else on the plane crazy with a baby that cry’s non stop throughout the entire flight. If your baby does start crying while on an airplane, you might to make sure you stay calm and patient, because as soon as you become frustrated, it can make the entire situation a lot worse.

While on your trip, one thing that I found to be important when traveling with a baby is to make sure you plan out some time for quiet time. The one thing with babies is that the can become overstimulated very easily and when this happens they can get frustrated and fussy and can lead to a very unhappy baby. I know that when you are on a trip that you are usually go go go but you need to remember that you are traveling with a baby and you should try to take things slow as much as possible.
