Travelling alone with baby

Travelling can be stressful.  Travelling with a baby can be stress multiplied.  Travelling alone with your baby?  Well, that can be a recipe for a hair-raising experience.  But before you decide to cancel your plans and stay home, relax.  With a little extra planning, you and your wee one can have a successful and fun trip no matter where you travel plans take you.  The key is to think ahead and bring along the essentials you’ll need to make things run as smoothly as possible.

First and foremost, don’t forget food for your baby!  This may seem obvious, but don’t bring along only enough for the journey to your destination.  If possible, bring enough formula or baby food for your entire trip.  Don’t assume that your destination will sell the kind of food your baby is used to!  If your baby is nursing full time, you may still want to bring along bottles of breast milk and a breast pump, in case there are times when nursing in public isn’t possible or comfortable, or if someone else needs to feed baby.  If baby is snacking on solid foods, bring enough snacks to keep her happy on the trip.  And don’t forget any sippy cups, special utensils or mixing containers you are used to using.  The less you have to improvise feeding time on the fly, the more comfortable and relaxed both you and your baby will be.
