Your newest addition to the family shouldn't keep you from traveling, nor should he or she make it difficult to do so. Your new baby requires a lot of gear, but you can't exactly load it all up in your suitcase and head off for a nice family vacation. So, what can you do to make vacationing with a new baby less of a struggle? Here, you'll find a few tips to help you do just that.
Baby Gear Rentals
Did you know that there are rental services across the country that supply baby gear to those on vacation? You can rent a crib, high chair, car seat, bouncy seat — whatever gear your baby loves at home, you'll be able to rent while you're on vacation — and it will even be delivered and set up for you. The one thing that these services cannot offer you is the car seat installation service — due to liability concerns, you will likely need to install the car seat yourself — or you can stop at a volunteer fire department and request assistance.
Even if your renting a hotel room that offers a crib, you might want to look into a crib rental anyway. A lot of times, the cribs in hotels aren't in the best shape — and they are typically the smaller cribs, not a full-size, fully disinfected and inspected crib.
Look into Rental Homes instead of Hotel Rooms
Babies make a lot of noise and require a lot of quiet — keeping a baby quiet and keeping the neighbors quiet in a hotel room can make the entire trip exhausting. Rather than dealing with sharing a wall with noisy neighbors, look into rental homes or entire homes that can be rented. A lot of times, you can find rental homes at close to the same cost as renting a hotel room. The difference is, you'll have an entire furnished home with a full kitchen and bathroom to work with. This will make it much easier to keep your baby comfortable and happy during the entire trip.
You next family vacation with your new baby can be successful — just start looking into the rental gear that your baby will need, then find a place to stay where your baby will be happy. Hopefully, the tips above will help you find everything that you need to take some of the hard work out of planning a family vacation with a new baby.
