Traveling with a Baby:

Babies can make traveling an interesting experience to say the least. No matter how you will be traveling with your baby, there are a few things you can do to prepare for the trip that can help make it a lot easier:

• Keep them occupied—You will want to take plenty of toys with you that will keep your baby busy. Babies, especially younger ones, don't stay occupied for long. This is why it is very important to take as many things with you as you can. As soon as baby starts to get bored with one thing, introduce them to the next. Once a baby has gotten bored or frustrated to the point that they begin crying, they will usually want to be picked up (and some like to be walked, rocked, etc.), and they often will continue this for long periods of time.

Normally this is something a parent can tolerate, and even get used to, but it is a lot different (and more frustrating) when there is still a lot of time left on a trip (this is especially worse if there are other passengers around and you can't get your baby to stop crying). This is why it is best to try to prevent your baby from ever reaching this point. Take a lot of toys (if there are other passengers, it is best if these aren't really noisy toys), cardboard books or other books to read to baby, small stuffed animals, etc. With babies, it is a lot more difficult to find toys that aren't noisy that will actually occupy them for any length of time, but there are some. Just go to the store in the baby toy isle and only look for things that you believe might actually occupy your baby for a while.

Another good thing to do is to not give these things to your baby (or even let them know you have them) until you are on the trip. Babies love new toys best, so it works better if the first time your baby sees it is during the trip.

• Don't let them get hungry—While you are traveling, you will want to make sure that your baby doesn't get hungry or thirsty. Depending on how long the trip is, and how you are traveling, if you don't have snacks and drinks with you, you may not have access to some when you need them.

• Keep them comfortable—One of the most important things is to make sure your baby stays comfortable. Everything from keeping a clean diaper on them to making sure they are wearing comfortable clothes is important. Sometimes parents don't always think about the clothes that their baby is wearing. For example, your baby may be wearing a pair of pants that would normally be perfect for them to wear, but when they sit in a car seat for a long time, the pants may get tight around the waist. A tag may be bothering them or their shoes may be uncomfortable. There is really no way of knowing in advance if your baby will be comfortable in certain clothes, so the best way to prepare for this is to take several sets with you.

These things may seem a little bothersome in the beginning, but they can help make a long trip seem a lot less long than it could. And, while it may mean that you have to pack and carry with you much more than you ever thought you would, it is worth it to keep the trip from being miserable for the parents and the baby.
