Going on the road with a child, we hope that the baby during the holidays will strengthen his health, gain strength, get new impressions … So that the rest does not go down the drain, it is worth foreseeing everything.
Life hack for parents: use a ready-made list of things for a trip with a child. Check off what has already been put in the bag. So you will definitely not forget anything.
You should always remember that the global and fundamental change of residence (altitude, atmospheric pressure, humidity and air temperature) often lead to the emergence of the so-called acclimatization syndrome – general malaise and an increased tendency to diseases due to the adaptation of the body to new conditions of existence.Acclimatization and the problems associated with it are all the more relevant, the farther from home, the younger the child, the more often he gets sick, the more harmful factors of civilization surround him. Therefore, if your child was sick for a whole year, did not walk and suffered, a trip to the country house (a village 30 km from the city, a forest, a river) can be much more useful than a vacation on the Mediterranean coast, even in a five-star hotel.
Here is what Dr. Komarovsky writes about summer vacations with children:
“A child should take a break from contacts with a lot of people, from city air, from chlorinated water and household chemicals. In the vast majority of cases, relaxing“ on the seas ”has nothing to do with healing an often sick child, since most of the harmful factors persist plus catering is added and as a rule, the worst, in comparison with home, living conditions.
An ideal vacation for a frequently ill child looks like this (every word is important): summer in the village; inflatable pool with well water, near a pile of sand; uniform – underpants, barefoot; restriction on the use of soap; feed only when he screams: “Mom, I will eat you!”. A dirty naked child who jumps from water to sand, begs for food, breathes fresh air and does not contact many people in 3-4 weeks restores immunity damaged by city life. ”
If you still decide to relax with the child at sea, then the best option for you would be to leave for at least a month. The first ten days will be spent on acclimatization, and the remaining twenty will be spent on rest.
