6 Tips to Help Your Baby Sleep Great while Traveling
Throughout the year, I get requests for traveling sleep tips for babies. Specifically, moms ask me where their baby should sleep when traveling and what to pack for baby’s vacation. They also want advice for flying with a baby and car travel sleep tips.
I get it! These moms are worried about good sleep routines getting ruined or baby sleep regressions after a vacation.
Let me assure you, traveling with your baby is a GREAT idea because it exposes you both to new places, people and experiences. Plus, it’s great for helping us moms get out of our “daily rut” and shake things up a bit.
A lot of parents tell me that their babies pick up new skills when they travel. For instance, my daughter started walking on a summer vacation we took to England. She had been practicing at home with no luck, but as soon as we put her bare feet on the English grass, she took off! It was especially sweet because being on vacation meant my husband and I were both there to witness it.
If there’s any time you really want to relax (& sleep) it’s on vacation! So these 6 tips to help your baby sleep great while traveling walk you through what to do, what to bring and what to not stress about.
