If you’re planning to travel with your baby or toddler, get into ‘babywearing’ without loosing a moment. Baby carriers make travelling so much easier.
Your baby will be able to nap whenever he needs and wherever you are. He will be able to snuggle his face in your chest or on your neck, forget the rest of the world and doze off. You will also be able to breastfeed whenever you wish, even where there is no convenient place to sit down.
If you are travelling by plane, focus on baby carriers without metal components. In some cases, you will be allowed to go through security without removing your baby. Based on our experience, it doesn’t work every time but it’s worth a try! Using baby carriers means you will have an easy way to get to the luggage belt when the buggies aren’t brought up to the aircraft door as I’ve seen happen regularly.
The baby carriers will also provide your baby with some comfort and security. When everything around your baby changes, new environment, new bed, new people, new toys, baby can become unsettled and weary. Giving him the familiarity of his favourite sling and the comfort of your closeness will allow him to adjust more easily.
This isn’t just for his benefits, but also for yourself. Having a contented baby while you’re travelling is essential to making the holidays an enjoyable time for you everyone.
