6 Tips To Travel With An Infant
Traveling is simply an exercise of logistics; you only need to find the safest, most comfortable and efficient way to get to your destination.
However, traveling alone with an infant can be intimidating. Traveling becomes more about maintaining your patience, and keeping the infant safe and as comfortable as he/she can be.
Can it be done? Absolutely!
This article will bring you up to speed with a few tips on how to travel with an infant.
Tip#1. Pack light
It is always advisable to pack light when traveling with an infant and it’s even more important to pack light when you are the one carrying everything.
Remember, all your attention should be focused on transporting your little one, not juggling with unnecessary luggage.
Tip #2. Ensure everything is in place before leaving
Think carefully about everything you need to carry before leaving.
You do not want to be digging around the bottom of your bags looking for wipes and diapers while balancing your baby on your hips with a just-to-explode diaper.
Tip #3. Bring enough diapers (rubber diapers)
It’s always a terrible experience to have an Atom-bomb of dirty diapers around you.
Since you do not have prior knowledge of the kind of mess your infant is planning to make, always carry enough diapers and cream. You can consider carrying rubber diapers because other diapers are known to leak.
These diapers will help you contain the mess your baby makes thus saving you a good deal of hassle.
Tip #4. Use a light stroller or wear your baby
The ability to be hands free while traveling with your baby is crucial, especially since the child cannot walk.
By carrying your baby on a light stroller or wearing him or her, you can easily navigate through the airport, clear easily on check points and use the ladies room with ease.
Tip #5. Bring your own car seat
There are several car rental companies who rent cars with baby car seats.
However, you never know how old or clean the seats are.
Therefore, you should consider carrying your own car baby seat. There several inexpensive and lightweight options in the market so you do not have to carry your cushioned, heavy car seat. If you are traveling with an airplane, take advantage of the airline’s and airport travel options for kids
Tip #6. Dress sensibly
Unless you are a celebrity who plans to be greeted by paparazzi in your tour, leave your 5 inch heels at home.
You do not want to trip over with an infant on your back.
Well, those are some of the travel tips on my sleeve. I hope the information has being of great use.
With those tips, you are now ready to travel alone with an infant.
