We try and vacation once or twice a year and if we didn’t pack our Action Baby Carriers, I don’t think anyone would get any sleep. Since I’m a seasoned traveler, I thought I’d share the reasons why baby wearing is great for traveling.
Read on, and share your top tips in the comments!
- Sleepy time help
Carriers are always at the very top of my family’s packing list and we pack at least one per child. When we are away from home and the routine is completely out the window, a nice long walk works like a charm at bedtime – or naptime. Baby wearing has many more benefits you can take on the road too!
- Prepare for takeoff
Not only does a baby carrier help with sleepy time, it gives mom (and dad) both hands free in the airport. At our local airport we were allowed to wear through security, just required to submit to a hand swab. Baby wearing allowed us to easily and quickly make our way to the terminal with little fanfare. We usually travel with car seats, so the kids are in their comfortable and familiar seats during take off and landing. Keeping a carrier close by for discrete nursing and calming a fussy baby helps make things go more smoothly.
- Hit the road
We like road trips and baby carriers take up much less room than strollers or wagons. Our Action Baby Carriers have allowed us to easily explore many cities and access spaces that wouldn’t be possible with other modes of child’s transport. Baby wearing has salvaged many outings and allowed us to visit lots of fun places.
We have carriers for infants and toddlers in a variety of fun prints. Check out our website (we even do custom orders!)
