Top 8 Tips To Travel With Baby Under 1 Year Old

1. Take most essential baby gear.
Light is the way to go when you are travelling. Especially if you are doing things like catching buses or moving around a lot throughout the day. I normally try to keep it simple.


2. Wear your baby.
It makes you more mobile and in my experience its much easier than pushing a push chair.


3. Pack light.
Just as I mentioned above, not to pack a lot of baby gear, the same goes for the parents' gear.
The lesser the better.


4. Breastfeed if you can.
Breastmilk is instantly on hand and contains immune factors, so it is the safest food and drink for your baby while travelling. If your baby is exclusively breastfed, you won’t have to worry about unclean water supplies or sterilising bottles.


5. Travel Toys
Whether you’re traveling by plane, train, or boat, your baby will get bored. Make sure you bring plenty of toys and books — and use them. Play with your baby and keep them entertained.


6. Babies need passports too!
Proof of age, such as a birth certificate or passport, may be required for infants under 2 years. If you don’t provide an acceptable form of identification for the infant upon request at check-in, your infant may not be allowed to travel.
If you’re travelling on an international flight, your infant or child always requires a passport.


7. Have travel insurance.
Print your policy and familiarize yourself with the basics. Make sure you know what’s covered and if there is a deductible. Clarify the specific steps to follow in case of an emergency, etc.
Pack your policy print-out and keep it with your important travel documents
Check to see if your policy requires you to use specific medical providers. Confirm their location prior to your trip
Take note if you’ll need to pay upfront and be reimbursed. Sometimes the medical facility can bill your insurance directly


8. Don’t worry too much over the “nap schedule”.
Whether it’s a stroller in a café or a pack n’ play at the hotel, it’s all the same to baby so long as she gets that good block of sleep on a comfy blanket.
