Coach Tours – Travelling with a Baby

Baby CarrierDue to the sudden increase in ticket prices, a lot of people are turning towards coach tours in order to travel to neighbouring countries. The best about these tours is that they are cheap and allow you to view the passing landscapes that you would have missed out on when travelling via air. Coach tours may seem great but it is a little tricky to travel with a young child. Here are some tips that will help you out:

Pack a Bag that You Can Take

It is important you know that the bag you will pack will go underneath the coach, so you will not have access to it until after the journey. This is the reason why you should pack that you can keep with you on the bus. The things that you need to pack in the bag include:

  • A lot of nappies because sometimes there are unexpected delays.
  • A changing pad
  • Nappy wipes
  • Hand wipes
  • Rash cream
  • Change of clothes for baby
  • Bip
  • Tissues
  • Baby food
  • Baby formula
  • Thermos of hot water
  • Basic medicines

Packing a Nappy Kit Bag

A nappy kit is extremely important, so make sure that you have all the important items in there.  Make sure that the baby is dry and comfortable all the time or else they can get rashes.

Keep the Child Hydrated

Make sure that your child is hydrated. If you breast feed your child, you should carry an extra water bottle for yourself.

Carry Extra Baby Food

Don’t expect that the country you are travelling will have the same brand of baby food. Pack enough baby food that will last you until your return.

Something to Entertain the Child

If the child is an infant, they will sleep most of the journey. The problem is travelling with toddlers because they tend to get restless. One great solution is to carry their favourite toys or blanket.
