Travel is a gateway to unknown experiences that can shape the life you live and the person you want to become.

For me travel is an education that tought me more than my university graduation, so I think it’s very important to teach my child about the world, not to mention how much fun we have as a family when we travel together.

I have to admit that travel with a baby can present its own unique set of obstacles, especially when it’s your first time.
 
The aim of this post is to encourage you to ignore the nay-sayers and find a solution that works for everyone 
 
“It’s dangerous!”; “It’s irresponsable!”; “Babies need routine, they don’t want to be shuffled around all over the globe”…these are few exclamations you’ll have thrown your way.
 
I can confirm that babies do like routines but I think the occasional break from the ordinary life makes children more adaptable.
Remember, traveling with your baby, and family  in general, provides opportunities to connect with your loved ones on a level that can’t be archieved in everyday life chaos.

So here are few key tips useful to planning your next family adventure:
 
– PREPARE FOR THE CLIMATE
Sounds very  simple but think about what you’ll need when you travel to a cold destination from a hot or warm climate!!
 
– BRING ENOUGH BABY FOOD
I breastfed my baby boy so we did not have to worry about baby formula. However I’ve learned from friends that once a baby finds a formula he/she likes it’s typically the only they will eat.
 
BRING A STROLLER
When you are traveling, a stroller is not just a stroller, it’s a bed and an all-around stuff hauler!!
 
– PACK OR BUY WIPES
lots of them!! Diaper wipes are a traveling parent’s best friend.
They serve as a toilet paper (don’t flush!) and can clean any number of surface that you or your baby may need to touch.
 
– BRING ALWAYS AN EXTRA CLOTHING 
Even for a 10 minutes walk!!!
 
– BRING YOUR TABLET
Load your tablet with music, videos, shows and games.
 
– SLOW DOWN!!
Don’t try to replicate the way you used to travel before baby. Things are different now, so try not to sqeeze too many activities or sightseeing into one day!
 
Now you’re ready, so let’s travel!!!!
