Traveling With Baby

Traveling With Baby

 Take a break – a spring break that is! It’s the much-needed break in the year where we get to take the whole week to just relax. Traveling with baby doesn’t have to be a daunting task, here are some tips and tricks to making your vacation with baby a smooth trip! Tip one, don’t panic! You’ve got this in the (diaper) bag! Plane rides can be a nerve-racking experience for even seasoned veterans. Keep these tips in your back pocket to help calm you and baby’s nerves.

  • Pack an extra set of clothes for you and baby. Just in case of any accidents that may happen before, during, or after the plane ride.
  • Book a flight that coincides with your baby’s sleep schedule.
Try to follow baby’s nap schedule as close as possible. Keeping them on their schedule prevents them from getting too finicky and helps with their growth and development. Rather than having to cut an activity short to head back to the hotel, here are some tips to help!
  • Plan your meal with naptime. Strollers like the Bugaboo Bee5 have a full reclining seat option making it easy for kiddos to nap while you enjoy a meal.
  • Trade off nap-sitting times. As one partner watches napping baby, the other one can play with the other children or go check things off their vacation bucket list.
  • If you brought your car or rented one, the perfect way to explore a new city and calm a baby down is by taking a scenic drive! The UPPAbaby 2017 Mesa Infant Car Seat is a modern favorite and offers a comfy ride for baby.
Make your hotel room a home away from home! When you first arrive, set everything up! You don’t want to have to rummage through bags to get what you need. Set up a changing station, baby’s sleeping space, and a feeding station.
  • Set up baby’s sleeping space. A portable travel crib like the Nuna Sena Aire is easy to set up and gives baby their own safe space.
  • Lay out bottles, baby food, and formula by the sink for easy cleanup!
  • Decide on where the changing area will be. Set up all the wipes, diaper, diaper cream and anything else you may need.
We hope these tips and tricks make traveling with baby a little easier. Safe travels! Check back here for more tips and tricks, DIY, and all things parenting!
