The baby can rock the baby while traveling by bus, car, boat. The lucky exception are the very small ones: their travels usually lull to sleep. But for some older kids, motion sickness takes on a completely different meaning. They may be bothered by headache, dizziness, nausea, sometimes vomiting. Do not give babies special pills.
What can be done?
– Lay the child in a semi-horizontal position, ask him to close his eyes and breathe deeply in his mouth.
– Try not to stuffy around, drink the baby from time to time. Maybe he can fall asleep.
– It would be nice to stop at least 15 minutes (for example, traveling by car gives such an opportunity).
– If the child is very sick, try to induce vomiting (irritating the root of the tongue and the back of the throat with a spoon or finger), it will immediately become easier. Remember to bring cellophane bags with you in this case.
Be sure to think about how you will entertain the young traveler when walking on the car and looking out the car window will get bored with him. The main help to the child on the road is the structuring of space and time. Get the most out of the situation: give him an extra chance to make sure that the world is curious and exists according to its own special laws. A three-year-old kid will ask you hourly, “When will we arrive?”, And then study the question of how day changes night, because about it you have a round-the-clock movie spinning around the window. There are books that may be “in the subject.” For the sake of such an event, it is worth stocking up with a toy watch with arrows. An additional story may arise if you cross the border of time zones, if you travel very far – in the window you can observe the change of climatic zones. Pay attention to how the birch forest is rapidly thinning, giving way to pyramidal poplars or low northern vegetation.
A separate attraction on the train is to make sure that the sun, unlike the nearby fishing line, follows the travelers keeping up. The four-year-old, inspired by the fact that the earth is round, will gladly listen to a story on the theme: “The animal world in different corners of the globe.” Again – store books from the Zoo series or the corresponding volume of the children’s encyclopedia. When the child is tired of contact with you, invite him to tell everything he saw and heard to his beloved doll. Older comrades will certainly grab a pen and a personal organizer – let them make “funny notes”.
Kids are perfectly distracted by books, if their viewing is accompanied by a fascinating narrative. Buy a dozen new ones – especially on a trip. “To the heap” grab a stack of old magazines – to tear to pieces. In addition, children love to draw. After a year, the child will love the magnetic magnetic tablet. For three-year-olds, stock pens, pencils, and crayons. You should also have an album or a lot of writing paper. Grab the coloring books. Kill two birds with one stone: buy a peanut book for the development of fine motor skills: the pictures in them are designed for coloring with hatching, which should lie in a certain direction. By the way, your favorite Velcro books for kids, or – just buy more small stickers. The walls of the compartment (and the interior of the car) will become much more fun after your trip! In the train for warming up, you can run along the aisle, carry your favorite truck along it, go to visit other children, at worst – slam the doors a bit. A futile lesson for us to compare the landscape in different windows of the same train car to a child may just seem delightful!
Thoughtful companions, keen on intellectual games, can use inlay frames, designers with a lot of details (such as a “big sorter”), transformer mats and a variety of lottos. There are also toy tool kits – especially for boys. To keep the baby busy for a long time, at least half of all the “bells and whistles” must be new, the other – make up toys that you have hidden in advance for two months. Give them out in turn only when the peanut has finally played enough with what he has. Tired – get out of sight. For small children, store a “crisis” toy: most likely, this is something like an electric piano or the same “zoo”, where each little animal gives a voice when you press the “her” button. A musical hammer and squeaker toys come in handy. Remove the lifesaver only when the moment becomes critical. It will be wonderful if you do not need it at all: you still have a return trip ahead. If the train bought the entire compartment or you have a ticket to NE, you can use a tape recorder and cassettes with children’s songs and tales.
