One of the major things to consider when you have a newborn baby is travelling. The art to success is beginning the process slowly and taking time to plan. If you put in place a simple checklist both you and your baby can be sure of first-class comfort and minimum stress. Take baby steps and soon you’ll have baby travel mastered!
Start off with introducing your baby to travelling by taking him or her out on a few day trips. Perhaps go to see a locally based relative or friend. The basic equipment you are going to need is a changing bag, a pushchair and of course a car seat. You’ll find that most car seats these days convert easily into a handy carry cot. To ensure you have all the necessary bits and bobs for baby travel it’s a good idea to plan in advance of the birth and let friends and family have a list of the items you are going to need as ideas for baby gifts.
In your changing bag you’ll need items such as enough nappies to cover the time you’ll be away. A good guide is to pack one nappy for every two hours you plan to be out and about. Take a couple of blankets to swaddle the baby, extra clothing in case of nappy accidents, bottle if you are feeding the baby formula milk and an extra t-shirt for you! A changing bag with lots of pockets will help you to store wipes and creams and take some plastic bags to store soiled clothes.
