Travelling with an infant or toddler can make you feel as though you are on a major journey. So much to carry, so few hands. Then there are the possible tantrums, which make most parents dread getting on a plane or train with their infant or toddler. Your child probably will cry or scream at least once in a while on a plane. It happens to all parents. But with some planning and careful packing, you can make travel easier for you and your child.
Here are a few suggestions to get you on your way.
Follow-up care is a key part of your child's treatment and safety. Be sure to make and go to all appointments, and call your doctor or nurse call line if your child is having problems. It's also a good idea to know your child's test results and keep a list of the medicines your child takes.
Much of the same advice for babies applies to toddlers, with a few additions.
