Traveling by Airplane
When traveling by plane you should know that you will have a bit more limitations compared to other ways of traveling. Such as when changing the diaper or breastfeeding you will not have much freedom so we recommend going by plane for short distance destinations. Another tip for traveling by a plane is to book a seat for your baby. This way you shouldn`t have to hold him all the time.
A very important point to keep in mind is to protect the baby. It is possible that you lose your balance and baby falls due o the turbulences caused by the plane. So always have your seatbelt on. Also try to get one direct flight to your destination. Having layovers can be exhausting for the baby and the parents.
Effect of Air Pressure on the Baby
When the airplane is about to take off the pressure of the air changes and it causes pain and discomfort on your baby`s ear. So when the plane is taking off, breastfeed your baby. In this way much less pressure effects the baby`s ear.
In addition, have anything you need for your baby on your carry-on and shoulder bag. Don`t forget to pack these in your bag diapers, toys, wet wipes, nursing bottle, and some clothes.
Traveling by Train
One of the most convenience ways of traveling is trains. This way you can have some walks with your baby inside the train and breastfeed or change diaper in the privacy of your passenger carriage.
Traveling by Car
Another convenient way of traveling is by your own personal car which has its own advantage and disadvantages. Since it`s your car, you can stop anytime and anywhere that you would desire. If your child is at the age that can sit in a child safety seat, put them in the seat and enjoy your trip. If not you should be prepared and have some pillows with yourself to help you hold him in a way that won`t bother him or you. Again don`t forget about the necessary stuff that you will need constantly. Put them in a bag and put them next to yourself.
When choosing the direction that you are taking, take into consideration that how many restrooms, restaurant, and gas stations are on the way. It`s better to have a list of what things you taking so that you won`t forget anything.
Bear in Mind:
It`s better to travel during off seasons therefore you can get a better room at the hotel, the road are not that busy and sightseeing will be easy.
If your baby is on powdered formula, get plenty of it beforehand and take more than needed with yourself because there is the possibility that there might not be a store on the road or your trip takes longer than anticipated.
If possible choose an accommodation place with daycare nearby and playground facility.
Do not over pack and just take the necessities especially if you are taking bus or airplane.
