To help you address your concerns about baby sleep while traveling, we are sharing all our favorite tips for getting a baby to sleep on vacation.
Traveling with an infant before they are on a sleep schedule is certainly a lot easier. Once your baby is on a sleep schedule, you need to decide if you’ll stick to it on vacation.
Giving them an even earlier bedtime often worked well to keep them happy the next day.
We would try to do the second nap on the go, which we had some success with. If the second nap didn’t happen, we’d adjust bedtime earlier to make up for it.
Often we’d put on pajamas, feed our baby and read stories or sing songs. We always followed her bedtime routine, regardless if we were on a plane or in a hotel.
Try creating a familiar sleep environment for them. For example, at home our daughter always slept in a sleep sack, so we brought her sleep sack every time we traveled.
We always try really hard get on the local schedule as soon as we arrive. We then incorporate our baby’s sleep schedule on the local schedule.
