Family Travel Made Easy
With Babies

(NUI) - Part of the fun of being a new parent is seeing the world through the eyes of your child. That's why family outings are as much fun for parents as they are for children.

Yet, getting there may not be part of that fun. Just ask the mom or dad who has to pack up the paraphernalia -- toys, bottles, blankets, car seats, clothes, diaper bag -- and spends the entire trip trying to keep baby happy.

Make the going smoother with the following 10 travel tips from travel writer Eleanor Berman, author of the "Away For The Weekend With Kids" series. These tips will ease the anxiety associated with traveling with an infant or small child and make the adventure happy for everyone.

1. Being confined to a car can be difficult for a small child. For day trips, keep the distance down, and for all trips with small children, plan to stop periodically for a small snack or to change a diaper.

2. Fill a special travel bag with a few favorite toys and books for the trip. Be sure to avoid toys with small pieces and detachable parts that can get lost in the car.

3. Bring along baby's favorite music, one upbeat selection for entertaining and one soothing selection for quiet time.

4. To lessen the bulk, use multi-function products specially designed for travel. Fisher-Price's "Home Away From Home" products, such as the Pop-Up Play Seat and Sit 'n Soothe Portable Bassinet, make travel easier for parents by performing several functions.

Traveling with children is easier with versatile items such as this Fisher-Price playtime quilt ... which can also serve as an upright infant seat.

5. Mirrors can occupy a small child or baby for hours in a car, train or plane. Make sure the mirror does not have sharp edges and is not too small.

6. Many babies sleep well in a car. Schedule travel for sleep times.

7. Bring along "L-shaped" bottles for feeding times while in a car seat. The bottle's design enables the baby to drink without tilting his or her head back.

8. For travel in a car seat or stroller, a neck support or pillow can help to make the trip more comfortable.

9. Bring along familiar objects from home, such as blankets and pillows.

10. Pack some of baby's favorite snacks; it is hard to find Cheerios and bananas at the airport or highway rest stop.
