  • If you are moving in a car, make sure to sit with your baby at the back seat, it being a safer place for the kids, saving him from the sun and dust.
  • If you want to look out of the window, make sure the sun rays are not falling on your child directly. See that he is not exposed to dry winds or dust, causing any kind of illness.
  • Keep the clothes according to the climate of the place you are visiting. If the days are hotter and the nights are comparatively cooler at the place you are going, then keep some woollens for your kids, without taking things for granted. Keep Vaseline and other body lotions for your kid to save him from dryness.
  • If you are travelling by a plane, make sure you place the cotton sobs in the ears of your child especially during takeoff and landing. The pressure in the air can cause ear pain in your child. Give him the bottle to feed or help him with the tether
  • If the place you are going to has a hot climate, keep light clothes for your kids and change them at least twice or thrice a day so that your child is not sweating much.
  • Keep some snacks or biscuits or any other food item that your baby likes and his sipper in your baby bag so that it is available to you whenever you need it. Children often get cranky when they are hungry or thirsty, so avoid such situations.
