Travelling with a child in car

Following measures can help you have a cosy and comfy car ride with your child:

  • Choose a good quality comfortable and safe car seat for your child.
  • Ensure the baby is comfortable in his/her clothes. It should neither be too hot nor too cold for the baby. See that the baby has a fresh diaper and (s)he is comfortable in it.
  • You can play good music like relaxation music/rhymes/ lullabies, anything that your child prefers. Take his toy basket or just a few toys along. This will keep your baby happily engaged for some time.
  • Keep his/her pacifiers handy.
  • If the child is in the back seat one of the persons can go there and play with the child.
  • Hand a toy to your child when (s)he seems to cry. That will pacify him/her for some time.
  • You should try and select a time where it is actually baby’s sleep timing so the child sleeps in the car and is well rested when it’s time to play.
  • Let there be some swinging toys. Babies love watching it.
  • You can also take a photo album or picture books along to keep them engaged.
  • Ensure there is enough food and water plus there is fresh air to breathe so keep the window slightly rolled down for air.

Note: It’s more difficult to travel by car with a baby than by bus or train as cars don’t allow much movement. A child tends to get crankier in a car because of this. So it is better to travel by bus/train whenever possible.
