Travelling with a baby may seem like a challenge to a lot of people. But it doesn’t always have to be that way. Anyone who goes well prepared will enjoy the trip without worrying about their baby possibly annoying other people on the trip. I’ll give you some quick and practical tips on travelling with your baby!
Fly At The Right Time
By this I mean that it’s highly recommended to travel when you baby is sleepy. This way, your baby will be sleeping the entire trip and you’ll be able to relax with no problems!
Call The Airline
The airline will probably ask you to bring your baby’s documents such as a copy of his birth certificate or even a vaccine record. Just to be safe, always call in case you need something in order to travel with your baby.
Bring A Portable Changing Pad
If you don’t have one yet, I suggest buying one as soon as possible. You’ll be needing it for the trip for whenever the baby needs to be changed.
Bring One Diaper Per 2 Hours Of Travel Time
Being prepared is important during a trip. Bring as many diapers you think you’ll be needed but if you aren’t sure how many you should bring then I suggest 1 diaper per 2 hours of travel time.
Wear The Baby
I’ve done it both ways, and it was so much easier to wear the baby in the airport, especially if you are traveling alone. You don’t have to fold up anything or ask someone to hold baby at security. When wearing the baby back pack through security, they just test your hands for explosives. But, you do not have to take baby or backpack off. Going to the bathroom with a stroller alone is super tricky too. I use this baby backpack. Baby backpack allows you to have your hands free to hold your phone of coffee or whatever.
