If you're like many parents, you might not want to get out and actually go anywhere right after your new baby is born. The occasional trip to the park or to a local shop is fine, but she needs a lot of attention right after birth, and travelling long distances can feel a bit overwhelming.
It doesn't have to be, though. If you do want to travel with your new baby, here is a bit of advice that can help you do it in a stress-free way.
Babies can begin to travel soon after they are born. If you're travelling by plane, most airlines ask you to wait until your baby is at least two days old. After that, you can travel whenever you feel like it's a good idea. Newborns tend to actually make great travel companions is they feel secure, cuddled, and are fed on a regular basis. The activity and movement of travel can help them sleep as well.
With newborns, the choice of travelling will often depend on how comfortable you are with the situation. Do you feel like you're running around constantly trying to change and feed your baby? If you don't feel as if you have a moment to spare between these tasks, it might be a good idea to wait a few weeks until you feel more comfortable and settled into the life of a parent.
At three months old, both you and your new baby will be much more ready to take on a holiday. At this point, your baby will be less fragile, but she will still be at a stage where she doesn't mind where she sleeps. She can sleep just as well at a cot in a hotel room as she does in her cot at home. Once the new baby becomes mobile, around seven months, travel can become a little harder because she has developed a routine she is used to.
When you're buying for baby, the right travel gear is essential. This gear can make for a smoother, stress-free journey and make it easier for you and your new baby to explore your destination together.
If you're flying, consider using a sling or wrap baby carrier. With your little one held snugly against your chest, she will feel much safer and more relaxed. Baby slings and wraps also make things easier for you. With your hands free, you can easily hold the baby’s changing bag, find money necessary for food, and hold your passport’.
Considering a trip with your baby? It doesn't have to be stressful when you have the right baby advice and the right tools to help you.
