Safety: at the airport or train station
In order not to lose sight of the child in a busy place (for example, at the airport or train station), wear brightly colored clothes on the road. Being in places where there are a lot of people, always agree in advance where you will meet in case you suddenly get lost.
Buy your child a baby suitcase with a cart on wheels or a backpack in which he can put his toys, children’s books or something from food. Having your own luggage for which you are responsible teaches the child responsibility. It is also important that he provides all possible assistance to elders.
You can’t do without a pot
A kid under five cannot and should not use a public toilet on the way. This is inconvenient, unhygienic, and besides, at the right time it can be closed or busy. After a diaper, a pot is the only alternative to the toilet. A few days before departure, prepare the baby for the fact that he will have to use the potty (for example, if he is already unaccustomed to it). The pot must have a lid (imagine how you will carry it out).
A little trick: you can avoid the problem of washing the pot if you put a sealed plastic bag inside (like in a trash can). Then it will be enough to close the pot with a lid, bring it to the toilet and, taking out the bag, get rid of the contents.
Go to bed
The kid (as well as his parents) will be easier to carry the road if he will sleep most of the time. Therefore, if possible, plan your trip mainly at night. Travel time will fly by, and it’s not so hot at night.
