Subject:  Necessary things for travel
Hi,

I am a mother of 14 months old son. I do agree that it' s really tough to travel with babies. I used to plan my travel and list out all the necessary things atleast before one week. I will try to list few of the very necessary things we need to carry while travelling with kids.

01. Enough of clothes (minimum 10 pairs for a 2 day travel)
02. Diapers
03. Wet tissues
04. Anti fungal powder
05. baby prodcuts like their lotion, moisturiser, cream .... depending on what all you use for your kid
06. Plain tissue papers or rolls
07. Carry bags (to dispose off your diapers and many other needs)
08. Bowls,plates, spoons to feed them.
09. Milk botles can be kept in one container to maintain the sterility.
10. All the food products packed in a nice manner.
11. Few toys of your kids, which they like most.
12. Medicines like calpol, domped.depending on the kid
13. Always better to carry fully boiled water instead of buying mineral water from outside
14. Baby towels, soap etc.,
15. 2 clean blankets one to place on their seat and one over them.
16. Shoe and socks (atleast 2-3 pairs) to protect them from dirt.
17. Two napkins so that you can clean your seat and depends....
18. If you are going to stay in a hotel or so, better to carry an mosquito repelent like All-Out etc.,
19. If possible, better to carry a hot plate or a small rice cooker which can be used to sterilise your kids bottles. Also you can boil the water. If at all preferring to take a hot plate along with you, it' s always better to keep enough of Good life milk packets along with you, so that you feel at home and you dont need to worry about the hygine too.
20. Enough of fruits like banana, apple, orange can be carried.
21. Thigns like scissors, knife, bottle cleaning brush.

:-) these are only few things..i could recollect. Have a safe and happy travel with your kid.

Subject:  be prepared while travelling with a baby
There are lots of things which mother needs to carry while traveling with a baby. It is very difficult to remember certain things. This is the reason why I prepare list of things required before traveling so that I do not miss anything while traveling. I thing most important things on the list are feeding material and clothes. To feed my baby I always carry nestle cerelac. It is good to carry as it is in a powdered form. I carry two thermoses, one for water and one for milk. There is no need to worry for feeding I feed my baby during the journey during the normal meal times.

Subject:  I feel scared to travel alone with my baby
I feel very scared to travel with my baby all alone. Even if I travel for short distance of half hour I ask any of my family members to come with me. It is very difficult to manage everything all alone during traveling. My husband always gives me company but he can not come with me all the time. So I have to take help of other members of my family. My mother in-law is very helpful. She always gives me company when I travel with my baby. She also gives me helpful tips when I travel with my baby and also about parenting. She also takes care of my baby when I go out for my work.

Subject:  traveling with small babies is difficult
It is very difficult to travel with babies. There are some many things required for traveling with babies. I used to forget something or the other. Babies also cry a lot while traveling. Actually it is very risky to take babies for distant traveling. I only feel comfortable when I travel with my baby by air. Other wise it is very difficult to travel by train or by car. Traveling by plan provides lots of benefits to the babies. There is no need to worry about feeding baby. There is also no need to carry extra milk or water as it is provided in the plane itself.
