Going places with a baby can be quite a challenge but do not fret!
We are here to help you out. Here are some ideas that will be life savers.
Pick an appropriate place – Yes, when you are travelling with a baby or a child, you must pick the right place. You cannot pick a random destination where the weather could trouble your child. Go to a place where you have relatives or is a basic working city like Mumbai, Chandigarh, Delhi, Amritsar, etc. Make sure you pick a place where you can access food, travel and staying easily. You don’t want to go to such a place where you have to go 3 to 8 km to find a grocery store or restaurant.
Carry all baby essentials – Skip over packing for your own self and concentrate on the baby. If you take all the necessary essentials and few extra measures, then your trip will be better than ever. Make sure you double or triple check everything you pack for the baby. Make sure all his/her toys, dishes, food items, etc. are kept together in one bag.
Pick the right train coach – If you are travelling by the train then don’t compromise. Pick the first class AC coach so that your baby can travel in comfort. Parents who travel with kids too should be able to sit around in comfort and hassle free. Make sure you order food from train, which is hygienic and fresh. Don’t eat or feed your child the unhealthy food served by the vendors in the train. If needed, carry tiffin of homemade food for the baby or child.
Don’t panic – We know it is not easy if this is your first trip with your little one, but if you panic and go over to the top with things, you could end up losing your cool. Stay calm and find a solution for any issues you might face during the journey. Nothing is impossible; if you plan well then you journey and trip are going to be like you wanted. So don’t panic and plan well.
Stay in sync with the weather – Always check the current weather in a certain city before you finalise or plan to travel there. Regardless of whether you are travelling with a child or not, it is necessary to have this little information. This will help you in packing the essential clothes you need and also what precautions you need to take in case you have some health issues. For example, asthma patients should avoid going to places with extreme cold weather and should carry their pump or medicines with them at all times.
