Who doesn’t love family vacations? So many places to go to & options to choose from, it is definitely going to be a lot of fun with your family.
Taking a trip peacefully with a baby on board may seem impossible at first. But it is actually best when your child is still a toddler! The child is exposed to a lot of things from the very beginning.
Also, think about it:
- You won’t have to run behind them all because they can barely walk
- They eat a little so you can carry food in smaller quantities.
- Most importantly, both parents can get a hands-on experience of travelling with them and prepare for the future travels
As a team, the two of you can manage your little one and still have a fun vacation.
Not sure how? Here are a few simple tricks of travelling with kids:
1. The packing stage
- Sit together with your partner & jot down a list of everything that needs to be packed
- Double check the list at all times & check if you have taken all the baby essentials (Count the number of items you’re carrying)
- While packing, one of you can start ironing clothes
- The other can organize the luggage. This way, the work gets done efficiently
2. The travelling stage
- You & your spouse have to be prepared for a diaper emergency at each every stage (Pack an emergency bag with the essentials)
- On the flight, the child needs to be kept engaged & entertained all the time. You can do it simultaneously
- Irrespective of any mode of transport, you can divide the duties amongst yourselves & take turns to do it
So, you can enjoy while on the go!
3. The outdoors stage
- Once you reach your destination, you will be on the go & get little time to rest (So make sure to be well rested before the start of the trip!)
- Make sure to carry all your TEDDYY baby care essentials with you
- Diaper changes will mostly be taken care of by the mom since there are no facilities for men to change the nappy in the washroom
- So, dads can take over the baby feeding sessions while the moms are out exploring the place
4. The hotel room stage
- You need to create that homely feel so that your little one feels safe & comfortable
- Both parents can help set this up (Do activities which you normally do at home – Feeding, playing, get their toys, pillow)
- Both of you should spend time talking to the baby & playing with the baby
- Make sure you also keep the bedtime same as it is at your home, so the baby doesn’t feel too much out of place
- Look out for family activities offered at the accommodation that you can do together
- Make a lot of memories!
We recently came across this awesome campaign by TEDDYY promoting co-parenting and vacations.
This campaign aims at breaking stereotypes like - Taking care of the baby both the parents’ responsibility. Even when you’re planning a vacation with your child.
When you & your spouse work as a team, you end up having a lot of fun & a stress-free vacation. A unique experience for the child!
So, TEDDYY diapers are aiming to break that in a super cute way.
