Travelling with Babies & Toddlers

Taking a baby/toddler on holidays for the first time can be a little daunting, but with the right planning it can be a lot of fun.

Start by considering your destination and the sort of conditions available to you. You may be staying at a resort that caters for children, in which case you won’t need to bring much equipment. If your destination is quite remote then you will need to be prepared for anything.

What is your baby going to eat while you’re in transit and once you reach your destination? Do you need pre made baby formula or are you breastfeeding? Do you need to consider airline regulations regarding the transportation of liquids? Check with the airline to get the latest rules. Do you need solid foods? Always pack more than you think you need. Delays are frequent and you don’t want to be caught short.

Will you need any sterilization equipment for bottles, feeding spoons or pacifiers etc.?

Disposable items are great for travelling as you may not be able to wash items while on the road. Check your local store for disposable bibs, change mats, soiled nappy/diaper bags, thermometers, moist wipes etc.

Pack your own first aid kit with paracetamol/ Tylenol, band aids, antiseptic cream, antihistamine, thermometer etc.

Think about the sorts of clothing your baby will need and be sure to pack plenty of extra in case of little accidents. Check the weather forecast for the area you are visiting to get a better idea of temperatures to expect and pack some extra warm clothes just in case. Hats and sunscreen are always a good idea.

Where will your baby be sleeping, and will you need bedding? Do you need to bring your own travel cot? A blanket or something with there own smell will help your child settle into a new environment quickly.

If you are flying make sure you keep a bottle on hand for your baby to suck on during take off and landing. This helps to ease the pressure on there ears.

Take a couple of there favourite small toys just to help them settle in at new place.

You may need to take your own stroller and or car seat but remember baggage handlers can be quite rough with your stroller so it might be better to take a cheaper one.

The most important thing is to relax and enjoy your trip and take lots of photos (so don’t forget the charger or batteries for your camera).
