On this weeks episode of the HomeBase Podcast, I talked about some great Travel Tips for all of you traveling this summer with infants! I wanted to compile them into a list for you guys. For a more detailed account, be sure to check out the episode: Summer Fun and Travel Tips!
1. Odor Repelling Trash Bags –
Arm&Hammer makes a good one that will attach to your diaper bag!
2. Mirror on the headrest –
Line it up just right and you can see your little pumpkin while your driving down the road!
3. Dress your little munchkin in airy clothes.
They are going to be confined and in the sun so let those legs and arms breathe.
4. Window Covering –
These window clings will help minimize the heat and reduce the glare on your little guys.
5. Nap Time Music –
whether it’s a white noise machine or a lullaby CD have it with you to help the peanuts fall asleep!
6. Boppy –
If you nurse on a Boppy, bring it with you! Anything you can do to make feeding in the car easier, do it!
7. Fun CD –
When the crying starts, have a kid friendly fun CD on stand by to change the mood in the car.
8. Toys! –
This may be a no brainer, but load them up with toys, hand them around the car to keep them occupied.
9. Stop at Rest Stops –
The bathrooms are cleaner and you’re guaranteed to have a changing table.
10. Baby Yoga –
When you are stopped and changing the diaper do some baby yoga to get their little limbs moving.
Always be safe and never text while driving!
