If you’re thinking of baby gifts and have decided it might be a nice idea to treat the new parents to a weekend away you might be put off by the thought of them trying to cope with the baby at a hotel. Travelling with baby need not be stressful. Most hotels provide well for babies and offer a range of products. However they may not be the brands and products that the baby is used to so the parents will need to check this out first.
Hotels also offer the use of their own baby cots. If the parents do decide to use the hotel facilities they should take blankets and toys that are familiar to the baby to help them settle in their new surroundings.
Some parents can fall into the trap of packing a week’s worth of baby paraphernalia when they go away however this isn’t practical and you can get away with taking one day’s worth of supplies for bottles and clothes. They should be prepared to wash and clean bottles and clothes so that it’s possible to minimise the baggage.
A good pushchair is essential. Pushchairs need to be lightweight and compact when travelling. A pushchair should be easily manoeuvred in and out of the vehicle. Those that have multi-positional seats are great when travelling as the parents can choose to let the baby sight-see or snooze. There are also plenty of added extras such as trays and extra compartments for storage which will be invaluable on an extended trip.
