No matter where you are going, there is nothing like travelling. What about the trip with the child? Don’t be afraid, we have brought together the tricks that will make your journey easy while you are going on a very fun holiday with the little ones.
Dress your children in comfortable clothes
Before you overestimate traveling with the child, put yourself in their shoes and aim for them to be comfortable in this long journey. Dress your child in comfortable clothes that are not too tight and not too loose, so they are comfortable along the way. Remember how active children can be and if they do these movements with difficulty, they may cause you problems.
Plan the details of your journey in advance
Remember that you take an extra responsibility when traveling with the child. Even if you don’t normally do it, picture everything about the trip in your mind and make a ‘to-do list’.
You can tell little lies
If you are traveling by car, try to keep the white lies, which are one of the first rules of traveling with a child. To attract your child’s attention and prevent him from getting bored you can say things that will interest them, such as “The rabbit can come out here, this is the squirrels’ area.
Don’t stress yourself
This rule is very important, especially when traveling by plane. Of course, while your child is shouting and calling, you should first silence him, but know that you should not pay attention to the adverse voices around you. Because be sure, there are plenty of people everywhere who will frown and sigh and don’t know what travel with a child means. Even if your child is an angel, such people will find something to disturb. So don’t stress yourself out by thinking about those around you.
Take fun books and toys with you
Of course, you can also put a phone in your child’s hand and keep him quiet throughout the day. But make sure his favorite toys will be true friends along the way. Fun three-dimensional books, children’s tablets or talking toys that you can give according to his age will ensure that he will not be bored on the road, therefore you will not be bored in the end.
Fill your bag with snacks
The roads are long, keep in mind that the little ones’ stomach may not accept everything. Instead of forcing him to eat foods that may not like him on the road, keep his favorite snacks with you. In times of crisis or hunger, these snacks will save lives.
Don’t forget the spare nappies
When it comes to traveling with a tiny baby, the first thing you need to take with you are diapers and cleaning wipes. Your child can urinate much more frequently in different weather conditions and travel environment. Therefore, it is useful to take more spare diapers with you than usual.
Make him feel like he / she is a companion
If your child is no longer a baby, invite them to share your journey. Ask her to carry her own stroller where necessary, hand a light bag, or have her carry the backpack with her toys. Make her a part of the journey by giving her burdens that are too light to prepare for his complaint, giving her information about the destination, asking questions.
Don’t forget the medication
Make sure you take all medications for your child with you. When it comes to yourself taking only a few painkillers would be enough however, the medicines of your children should be at the forefront in this journey. Since you cannot predict what will happen during the journey with the child, compile the medications he uses and create a tiny medicine bag.
Make good memories
No matter how hard it is to travel with the child, let it remain among your best memories. At the end of the holiday, all you have to do is to look at the past and smile. Put everything aside and enjoy this journey with your child to the fullest. Be a kid with her, joke, have fun, laugh. Of course, there will be points where you will get angry, but remember, she’s a child!
