Transport selection

If we talk about children or teenagers, it is quite obvious that a plane or a train will be an excellent option for moving from one point to another. But a newborn is a completely different story. Why? For example, of the pressure difference at height, jars

with baby food can explode. Due to low pressure, jars of cottage cheese and yogurt may swell, but the quality of the product will not suffer.

A little human needs adult control and comfort literally every second. Such conditions can be created by a car. It is also important that you can be alone with your family in the car, for a child who often wakes up, this is an important condition. If you don't have a car, you can find a way out. For example, take a car from friends or use a car rental service. Hiring services are a great option because travellers can choose any car they like which meets the requirements. It can be premium cars for rent, or it can be a regular car for hire with a basic set for comfortable driving. The choice is yours!


In order to maintain a sense of calm during the journey, it is important to prepare all the necessary documents for you and the child in advance, as well as to make their scans and copies. After all, traveling can become annoying when something does not go according to your plan. Let's try to prevent all unpleasant situations and prepare in advance.

Choosing a place of rest

Obviously, it will not work anymore to choose a place of rest based on your desires. Now there is another member in your family who needs to comply with many conditions for a comfortable existence. It is worth choosing a place of rest based on the temperature regime of the country, the level of sanitation, the absence of local epidemics, dangerous insects and animals. In some countries, dangerous insects and animals appear seasonally. Keep track of this and remember that young children are especially sensitive to dangerous creatures.

First aid kit

A first aid kit is what every traveler needs on the road. First aid kits are especially important when you go on a trip with a small child. Try to predict all the risks and take into account all the features of your child's body. And, of course, don't forget about yourself. A basic set of medicines for children and adults is simply necessary.

What exactly to take with you?

Estimate how many diapers you usually use during the time that you plan to spend on the road, and prepare them for a few more pieces, with a margin. Be sure to take hygiene products — wet wipes, powder. If the baby needs a pacifier, be sure to take a few in a sterile container. It's the same with the water bottle. If the baby is breastfed, there will be no problems with nutrition. Grab only a cape or scarf to throw on yourself during feeding, if you feel embarrassed when feeding in crowded places. By the way, there are mother and child rooms stations, where you can feed your baby in more comfortable conditions.
