Traveling with Your Baby
Traveling by Car
Traveling by Air
Provide a neck rest for your baby so that sleeping in the car seat is more comfortable.
Dress your baby comfortably. If arriving late in the evening, dress your baby in pajamas.
Stop every couple of hours for a short break - feeding, changing or walking around.
Keep a toy bag in your car to pull out toys while driving and while visiting.
Limit carry-on items, you have the baby, diaper bag and the car seat already.
Dress your baby comfortably. If you want your baby in a special outfit to see Grandma, you can change your baby into it at the end of the flight.
When you reserve your seats try for bulkhead seats (right behind first-class) there is more leg room and it's easier to get in and out to attend to your baby.
Properly restrain your child. The airline can tell you what you'll need.
Take care and be sure that your baby has something to suck on during take-off and landings, so the pressure doesn't build up and cause ear pain.
If your child is congested, check with your pediatrician before flying.
