Holidays with baby

You want to spend your holidays with baby?

 

Spend time with your family? Relax from the hectic last few months? Have your baby discover new sensations such as the sea, sand, snow or nature ...

 

At what age can you travel with a baby?

Baby can travel from the third week. He sleeps a lot and needs a quiet environment, you will have to adapt to his needs and pace.

Your baby might be disturbed during the first days of your vacation because of the changing environment. It is best to travel at night or during his sleeping time, the trip will be much more calm and confortable for you and him.

 

Flying with baby?

For long flights most airlines offer special cradles for less than one year old babies. However be careful as their number is limited by flight, it is necessary to book very early and to indicate when booking that you want a cradle. Usually the price of an airline ticket for your baby is about 10% of the amount of an adult ticket.


Where to go with a baby?

In the mountains, the sea, the countryside, in wellness?

In the mountains with baby: Favor if possible the resorts at low altitudes (below 1200 meters for an child under one year old). During the climb, make regular breaks and remember to give baby a bottle, so it will not have his ears plugged.

At Sea with Baby: The sea air is very good for your baby. However it is best to avoid destinations too hot or too wet. Do not choose countries going frequently over 30 ° (risk of gastro-enteritis and dehydration). Also favor a destination where the jet lag is not too important.

At countryside with baby: Walks in the countryside are very suitable with baby. But watch out for insects.

Wellness centers and Spa with baby: With the nights shortened in the first months, the fatigue of pregnancy and lactation, the mother really needs to be pampered! A number of hotels provide dedicated wellness and spa stays for young mothers with babies.

Finally it is better to avoid the destinations for which vaccines are mandatory (yellow fever, malaria). I also suggest you choose a destination that offers medical facilities nearby. Once you have reach your final destination, stay there for as long as you can and avoid moving to another hotel again.
