I have three kids and each time when they were newborn, we went on a road trip. Since I was nursing my little ones, I had to have my hubby pull over so I could feed them when they were hungry.
Some things I have learned along the way when traveling with newborns, are things I sure wish I had known before now. It would have made my life so much easier. Now that I DO know, I want to share them with you. Hopefully, my tips on traveling with a newborn might help someone.
Tips On Traveling With A Newborn
*If you breastfeed your baby, be sure to pump some milk before you travel. Store it in a cooler that is easily accessible and have it in bottles, all ready for baby to drink. If you formula feed, do the same, keep in a cooler that is close by for easy grabbing.
To warm up the bottle to baby’s liking, I recommend using the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Travel Bottle Warmer. It can warm the bottle quickly!
*Safe travel, crash-tested and shatter-proof mirror so you can keep an eye on your baby and make sure they are breathing and safe. I can’t tell you how many times I looked into our baby mirror that we had! It was so nice having that so I knew my baby was safe and it gave me a piece of mind and less anxiety!
*Light blanket. It doesn’t matter if I was traveling in the wintertime or summertime, all of my babies liked to have a blanket near them. Of course, I kept a very close eye on them (see tip above!), but without the blanket, they were always fussy and couldn’t fall asleep.
*Travel during times your baby would normally be sleeping. That way, your baby will be tired during that time and hopefully sleep the whole time. I know my newborn babies liked to sleep a lot during the day, so that is when we would do most of our traveling. At night, they were awake and wanting mama, sigh.
