After spending days working, vacations with family are something to look forward to. Vacations to Mama and Papa's favorite places while bringing your little one are interesting. If your little one is still in its infancy, Mama and Papa can take your little one on vacation, but of course with the condition that the pandemic is still changing into a COVID-19 endemic, and the baby's own condition, which is usually still sensitive, of course there are things that become necessary. be considered before going on vacation with the baby. Here are things parents can do.

 

  • Make sure your baby is fit for the holidays

 

Before going on a long holiday with your baby, good health is very important. When your baby is sick, of course the baby becomes more fussy and becomes unable to participate in holiday activities. Therefore, before going on vacation, it's a good idea to check with your pediatrician to find out if the baby's condition is really fit. If the baby has a vaccination schedule, make sure the schedule is a week before the holiday to prevent congenital events after vaccination. Consultation with a pediatrician is also helpful if your doctor has suggestions regarding vitamins or other supplements that the baby can take during the holidays to maintain his condition. For example, some pediatricians recommend bringing vitamin D3 for babies to maintain the baby's immunity.

 

  • Pay attention to the sanitation of your baby's equipment during the holidays

 

With the COVID-19 virus and the mysterious hepatitis, sanitizing baby equipment is very important. This sanitation includes sanitation of breastfeeding equipment, eating utensils, and other baby equipment. Therefore, prepare extra space in your travel luggage specifically for carrying sanitary equipment. This could include special sanitary wipes, sealed containers for carrying items, an easy-to-carry UV-sterilizer, etc. If the baby has started eating complementary foods (MPASI) you can bring several spoons, drinking utensils and other eating utensils more than one so that when a spoon falls on the way you don't have to immediately sanitize the cutlery.

 

  • Bring your baby's favorite toys so they don't get bored on the trip.

 

Bringing your baby's favorite toys is very important during the holidays because keeping your baby's favorite toys and books will make the baby calmer and happier during the trip. You don't need to carry a lot, just bring 3-5 to be alternated. You can also choose toys and books that are quite light and easy to clean while traveling.

 

  • Pay attention to your condition so that you are in the most fit condition

 

Traveling with your little one, especially those who are still babies, of course, will require extra energy from you. With any proper preparation, traveling with a baby will be more difficult, not to mention when the baby is fussy during travel and holiday activities, of course this will drain the parents' physical and mental energy. Therefore, another preparation that is no less important is the physical and mental preparation of parents during holidays with babies. In addition to preparing goods and holiday activities in advance, parents can start taking care of their health by exercising, eating foods with a healthy diet, and getting enough rest so that even though there are hassles and things that may drain parents physically and mentally during the holidays. , parents have stamina and good health. Happy holiday!
