By planning ahead, packing smart, and preparing for your journey with baby, you can lessen the stress and maximize comfort and enjoyment for both you and baby.
It’s possible that at some point baby is going to be overstimulated, bored, or stir-crazy and will have a melt-down. Muster up your empathy; long international journeys suck for everyone, and baby can get just as tired and cranky as the rest of us. Give baby understanding, love, and take some deep breaths for yourself and know that you’ll both get through the journey, and you and baby will both be rewarded with the experience of travel and taking in a new place and adventure together.
The following topics cover all of the planning essentials, from age-specific packing lists, gathering the best documentation, and deciding what gear to bring and leave behind for your trip.
