The team at Ingenuity™ offers summer travel tips for parents with babies. One tip is to downsize and streamline what goes on the trip. Multi-tasking products like the Washable Playard by Ingenuity are ideal for summer getaways.
The Ingenuity Washable Playard with Dream Centre™ is designed for children to play in, rest in and sleep in. It also keeps all the baby essentials nearby. An extra-large storage tray can hold diapers, a full box of wipes, and more, allowing a parent to have everything that is needed at hand. The Ingenuity Washable Playard is designed to easily move and be taken on vacation.
Some other tips for summer travel with babies:
Take the time to pack. When packing is hurried, things are more likely to be forgotten. Smart packing makes for a better trip. Check the weather and make sure there are appropriate clothes for every activity, from swimming to sleeping.
Carry snacks. A child can get hungry anytime and sometimes food is not always available, especially in a car or on an airplane. For the baby who drinks formula, bring powdered formula and add the water on the plane, but never use tap water from the airplane bathroom.
Child proof hotel rooms or relative’s houses. With an Ingenuity Washable Playard, baby always has a safe place to play or rest while a watchful grown-up remains nearby. The Ingenuity Playard meets safety standards that a used hotel crib might not. The playard easily folds up so one person can set it up and take it down. It also folds without need to remove the bassinet. The wheels allow for easy portability. The playard includes a napping station and, for the child’s comfort in unfamiliar surroundings, the Soothing Sounds Center has five melodies and three nature sounds.
Plan for both indoor and outdoor activities. Escapes from the extreme summer heat or an unexpected rainy day are often necessary. When baby is outdoors make sure he or she has on baby-safe sunscreen and, as possible, a hat. Also, make sure babies are protected from mosquitoes with lightweight clothes and baby-safe mosquito repellent.
