Q. What is the safe time / minimum time when a baby can travel?
According to doctors, one should wait until your child’s immune system develops and that is at least 1 month. While some airlines say that 2 weeks or 2 days are enough, you should ideally wait for 3 months. By that time, you can take your child on road trips and other trips. Common problem can be jet lag.
Q. What to pack when traveling with your infant?
Keep it as light as possible. Your baby just needs some diaper, food to eat and some comfy place to sleep. Irrelevant stuff will only make chaos everywhere. There is a catch here however and that is whether you will be changing trains or going straight to a designation. If your answer is latter, a larger suitcase may be ok but if it’s former just don’t even think about it.
Q. What type of food is best for baby (under 6 months)?
Breastfeeding is the best substitute and there’s nothing better than that due to many reasons one of which is less raw material needed and doctors also recommend it is the safest. Generally, its acceptable in many countries and there is nothing wrong with it. Moreover, Airplanes also provide breastmilk powder or milk formula, just demand it.
Q. What is the right time to do dinner with a child?
Many people ask or want to know that what is the right time and place to eat dinner while on an international tour. Firstly, you can choose any place and avoid strollers because many diners are already tight thereby making it unnecessary and useless. Also go check in early as it will be less crowded so in case your child weeps or make loud noises it will be less distracting and less mortifying. Ideally, the best time would be when the child is having a nap but that is not always amiable.
Q. What are the different ways in which Airlines can make your sufferings lesser?
Many airlines have separate family lines and priority boarding where you can skip the line and enter the airlines before it becomes a chaotic human traffic jam with all passengers in a hurry to enter as soon as possible. Remember babies need passport too.
Q. What are some quick hacks/suggestions for certain tough situations with baby?
Firstly, is the help of technology. On your smartphones, sits an app store that stores wide variety of apps, one of which is rain voice maker. It imitates the voice of rain and the child feels pretty great especially when the kid is light sleeper who can wake up or be disturbed even with your breathing.
Another is playing Nursery rhymes on YouTube or similar app, you can even download if net’s an issue to you. Also there are several online games which can be played or if you are one of those Anti Screen person than god bless you with traditional cardboard games (A Hard cardboard though or your little body will rip off and tear them).
