Preparation is the key to being able to enjoy your first train ride with your baby. Even though traveling by train is a lot slower than other means of transportation it allows you’re little one, a lot more mobility. This article will give you several suggestions on how you can make your babies first train trip enjoyable fore the entire family. The first thing you want to do is make sure that you board the train as early as possible.
This will guarantee you and your family good seats. If you go to the back of the cars you will be able to use the four sweater unit. This will allow your family to be a lot more comfortable and have a lot more space. I would highly recommend that you pay for an extra seat for your baby. This way if the train becomes crowded you will still have plenty of space for you and the baby. Babies love to look out the windows and watch the scenery go by so you will probably want to make sure that you get a window seat.
If this is going to be a long train ride you will want to make sure that you brink a nice size selection of toys for your baby to play with. They will eventually get tired of looking out the window, so you will then need to pull out some additional items to keep them occupied. Packing plenty of food and snacks for your baby is one of the most important things to remember for any train ride. You can probably fit everything in your baby bag, but it may be a good idea to bring along a small cooler to keep fresh milk, juice and water handy for the baby.
It may also be a good idea to bring along snacks for the entire family. Each individual can have their own lunch bag with snacks. This way you will not have to worry about waiting for food and everyone is comfortable for the duration of the ride. When it comes to changing the babies diaper do not be afraid to change your babies diaper right on the babies seat. This is yet another reason why I think that it is important to get the baby their own seat. This way when you need to change a diaper you can do so right there. The bottom line when it comes to making your babies first train ride is to cater to your baby. You and your spouse can take turns caring for the baby. And when the baby rests you should do the same.
