Baby-Friendly Sedona Vacation Rentals
On our first several trips with our baby, we simply did as we always do on vacation – we rented a hotel room. Everything went great with our baby-friendly hotel rooms in Barcelona and New York, but it was on our trip to Paris and London with a toddler we discovered there are some advantages of staying in a baby-friendly Airbnb or VRBO.
Airbnb and VRBO rentals have many family-friendly features, especially for parents traveling with a baby. The biggest advantage is having separate bedrooms, which allows you to keep your bedroom lights on while your baby gets to sleep in a separate, quiet, dark room. Other baby-friendly features of vacation home rentals include a full kitchen and in-suite laundry facilities.
Essential Baby Gear for Hotel Stays
As you plan your trip to Sedona with a baby, take a moment to consider the gear you need to travel with a baby. To help make your stay at your Sedona family resort as successful as possible, you may wish to consider the following:
SlumberPod Privacy Pod
One of the hardest things about staying in a hotel room with a baby is sharing a room. When it’s time for your baby to nap or go to sleep for the night, most parents will need to sit silently in the dark until it’s safe to turn on a light. If your baby can see or hear you, it makes it significantly harder for your baby to get a good sleep (and good sleep is essential to a happy, cooperative baby on your family trip).
The SlumberPod Privacy Pod is the perfect solution to this challenge. The SlumberPod is a large, bottomless canopy that fits over your baby’s travel crib or your toddlers travel cot. It’s made of a stretchy, black fabric that is breathable while still creating a dark blackout baby sleep pod. Your baby will sleep significantly better with a SlumberPod Privacy Pod, even if you are in the same room.
A Travel White Noise Machine
The SlumberPod solves the problem of making it dark enough for your baby to sleep in the same hotel room as you. A travel-friendly white noise machine or app will help solve the issue of your baby not being familiar with all the noises in your hotel room.
If you use your white noise machine at home prior to your family trip, bringing it with you will mimic your baby’s at home sleep environment. Check out our list of the best white noise machines for travel.
Baby Travel Essentials
When staying in a Sedona hotel with a baby, the combination of a SlumberPod and a white noise machine is an effective combination for a well-rested baby. To help make your family trip to Sedona as successful as possible, you should consider looking at your other baby travel gear needs. Our list of must-have baby travel essentials covers the best baby travel gear for sleeping, for getting around, for eating and the all-important baby airplane travel gear.
We hope this list of the best places to stay in Sedona with a baby helps you have the best-ever family vacation to Arizona!
