Katy child care tips: Traveling safely with your infant

Posted on 06-20-2014


Distressing at times, traveling with your infant can be easier than you expect. Your child has limited mobility, fairly simple needs and spends a lot of time sleeping.

Traveling with your infant by airplane

  • Inform the airline you are traveling with an infant. Special rates are often available and airlines will try to accommodate your needs. Sitting in the front of the cabin allows you more room. Request assistance from the cabin crew to help you get settled and store your bags.
  • Be early when traveling with an infant to reduce stress. Allow extra time in the event of any unforeseen emergencies.
  • Having extra essentials on hand if the flight is delayed will aid in accomplishing a stress-free trip. You travel bag should contain extra diapers, clothes, snacks, wipes and formula/milk for your infant. A change of clothes for you will be welcomed in the event of accidental spills.

Traveling with your infant by car:

  • Having a high quality, rear-facing seat, located in the back of the car and properly installed, is a necessary safety measure.
  • Available at most stores, removable car window shades will keep your infant out of the bright light and aid in keeping the car cool.
  • Road trips require numerous small stops along the way. Giving yourself plenty of time to complete your journey will help reduce any stress.
  • If you are looking for infant travel accessories, try Babies R Us in Katy. They have a wide range of products including all the leading brands on the market. They also have an online shopping option.
