Planning on touring South America but in doubt if you have to leave baby or bring along on the trip?You don’t have to worry anymore because there are proofs that parents were able to successfully enjoy their South America Tour while enjoying with their little one. Here are some tips on how to enjoy your holiday while taking care of a young baby.
- If your baby is breastfeeding, you can skip this step but if baby is taking the bottle make sure that you have enough. Bring double the usual amount that baby consumes since you won’t be able to buy formula milk while on the plane. It is better to leftovers later than to worry about a screaming, hungry baby on the flight.
- You can bring a stroller or pushchair if you want but you have to consider a number of factors. Majority of the streets in South America are not paved and uneven so it is best to bring a pram with big wheels designed for cobbled roads. The advantage of having a pram with you is that the baby will be able to sleep and take naps while you tour around.
- If you want to be hassle-free, you can also bring a baby carrier so you don’t have to carry a pram around. Choose ones that are comfortable and sturdy for carrying baby for long stretches of time.
- Babies that take pacifier should have a clip with it. You won’t have to worry about it falling and cleaning every time.
- Staying in a hotel with a baby will give you the option to ask for a cot with you in the room. Most of the hotels during your South America Tour will offer cots for free.
- For bottle-feeding babies, make sure to buy bottled water when preparing their formula since it is cheap in South America and safer than any other water sources.
- For a more comfortable South America Tour, make sure that you bring basic medicine for your baby in case of sudden fever, clogged nose, or cough.
