Traveling with Your Baby

Traveling by Car
  • 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.

Traveling by Air
  • 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.
