Travelling abroad with babies.....

I found a site that is useful if you are travelling abroad and want British baby food, toiletries, nappies, first aid etc to be sent ahead of you arriving at your hotel/villa.

I had a look and it is expensive but may be useful to someone

I was looking at this in M&B the other day, and while it would be fantastic if you are going somewhere remote with no facilities, it wouldn't be necessary if you are going mainland.

What were the shops like for nappies etc when you went over V?

There was a co-op type shop and a british baby supplies and food shop, the nappies were pampers but were very very expensive, we would pay £8 for a pack of pampers here but they were £14 there. In the supermarkets, the big ones, they were cheaper but didnt do pampers, they did other makes that were unknown to me. I think they did do Huggies or some sort though.

They did baby food (jar) in the British supplies shop too but everything was double the price. A small box of crunchy nut cornflakes was £4.

Yeah I agree. I am going to Turkey in June and we don't have a car seat and we are not hiring a car either. My Dad is living out there and he will be driving us around but I would like a car seat. We can take one with us we are flying with BA but we have to fly on Easyjet first and cant take the extra with us, we are taking a travel cot with us already. I have to look to see how much it will all cost.

When I went to Mallorca the other week there was a couple with a double buggy, (2 kids) and they also took a car seat for the tiny baby. That was with Fly Globespan, they had so much stuff. But I guess its worth it if it saves a life eh!

V- is your Dad staying out there for a while - ie will you be visiting often? If so it might be worthwhile buying one to keep out there - I'm sure Turkey must have something similar to ebay -- might be worth looking in to.

You have to be careful with car seats. My folks live in the US and when we went with ds last summer I thought about butying a car sat to take with us and leave out there for future use. When I went to JKUK the car seat expert said that insurance would not cover me as the seats are not made to fit US cars - think European cars may be different? Might be worth checking.

we travel around Asia a lot and there is no way we can take a car seat with us. we do the same for cars as we do with planes cos those baby seat belt things are pointless IMHO.

what we do is put DS in a baby bjorn. Daddy then sits in the back seat, with DS on his chest. Then Daddy puts the seatbelt between his body and DS.

Hi Elaine

Yes he is out there for a while, and yes I did think about an ebay type thing there also (great minds think alike!! :D) although we can take a travel cot with us on the plane, its a pain so I was going to buy a cheap one of them there too.

Travelling with baby

Anyone travelled to the USA with a baby?

I am taking pushchair as we are going to NY for 5 days in december (where it will be freezing), then flying to Orlando for a further 8 days. I want to take her pushchair as I have ust bought a cosytoes and it will be nice and warm when we are walking the streets of manhattan (as not sure if it's practical to use the subway with a buggy). The only problem is what should we do about a car seat? It's not practical to take the carseat with us and she's almost growing out of it, and I don't want this to be her only pushchair seat as it's nowhere near as comfy as her normal seat, plus she sleeps in her buggy very well.

I'm not sure about the rules for taking babies in cabs in the USA and am finding it very difficult to get any information about it - can anyone help?

There is this company Tiny Tots Away
but they don't hire carseats, if you are hiring a car many companys offer them as an extra. A car seat is just as bad for a babys back as the buggy, so it may be an option to hire a bouncy/ highchair or even travel cot from these instead? Only other thing I can think is that if the floor allows to make a base in your room for L using pillows and blankets :)) Have a great trip, sounds wonderful! :D

I don't see the problem in using the subway. Will you be on your own a lot or will there be someone to help carry down the steps?
Lots of subways have got lifts now.
I am pretty sure that there will be someone not that stressed to help you!

You should book a car service from the air port to be sure to have a car seat!
If you go to JFK there is a train to the nearest subway in brooklyn somewhere but it is a bit booring.

Are you renting a car in Orlando? Larger distances to travel there!

Z is almost a year and he can still squeeze into his baby seat so you might want to bring one along and just use a normal taxi.

I am flying to California on Wednesday with L, and when we were wondering what to take with us and how much it would cost to hire, we decided to just take her car seat with us, although this is not her 'baby car seat' its a britax first class si seat.

We have to check this in as luggage for L as we are taking her buggy too. What ever you decide double check the baggage allowance with each airline before you go, As We need a connecting flight with BA in this country and there baggage allownace is alot different to the Virgin Atlantic allowance. Although the virgin allowance superseeds the BA flight as it is a connecting flight iykwim, but yours will not be as you are spending a few days in NY first.

Hope you have a great time, I guess Mickey will be tired hoping between Orlando and california! lol

Enteraining tot on long flight

Hi guys,

I am hoping that some of you may have some great tips on entertaining L on our up and coming flight.

We do have night flights but as she hardly sleeps here i doubt she will much on the flight.

We have bought her some new books and colouring in books and crayons. She will also have an inflight TV although I don't think she will wear the earphones at all.

So any ideas would be great please!

Thanks in advance xx

Hi Binky

You never know what it is that will entertain the child the most on the flight. The buttons on the arm of the seat entertained DS1 on and off the entire flight, and one book that I took we must have read 50 times (we had 6 others with us that didn't get a look-in!). It was a lift-the-flap book and although the stories were way over his head, we just talked about the pictures over and over and over again. I was so bored, but if he was quiet and interested, that made me happy/relieved!

On the way back from the US, on a night-flight, although DS1 doesn't know how to sleep except in a cot, DH strapped him onto his seatbelt with the baby extra belt as soon as possible and just held him (gently but firmly held his arms and body) lying on his back on DH's lap/legs. He struggled and cried for a while, but when he realised that nothing was going to be done about it, he went to sleep. He never sleeps in the pushchair, so we really thought it wouldn't be possible. He slept/stayed in that position for most of the flight which was better than we had ever imagined possible. The loud crying for 20 mins at the beginning was worth it for the benefit that came later! (We had booked a daytime flight back for that very reason, but it was cancelled because of 3 feet of snow that fell the night before - how frustrated was I!)
Had a total of three fresh IVF cycles and three frozen transfers (embryos and blastocysts)
m/c @ 11 weeks in 2007 DS1 and DS2 born from fresh IVF cycles :D

Supposedly, screaming helps babies relieve the pressure in their ears.

I recently went to Turkey on a 4hr flight on my own with Chloe. I made friends with a couple who really really helped me out. C loves people and as long as she had people to talk to and who would give her a bit of attention she was ok.

C doesnt sleep anywhere but in her cot or car seat, well not easily anyway. She was getting so tired and fidgetty, so I just rocked her and held her firmly while she screamed and cried her head off for about 5 minutes til she just finally and suddenly fell asleep. I didn't care what others thought. I thought I woudl worry, but I didnt.

I won't lie, its not easy, but you never know L may sail through it. C was fine with her ears. It depends what time your flight is, but I was lucky as we departed exactly when her night bottle was due, other times I used a dummy, or get a sucky beaker of water/juice to keep the sucking going to prevent the ear pains.

Good luck hun x

Things I found useful to take:
comfort blanket or cuddly toy,
plenty of dummies (if used)
juice cup
pens
books
colouring books
blanket (I needed lots of padding for when she fell asleep under my arm against the window as it was cold and hard)
comfy clothing thats easy to get to the nappy (changing thing in the loo is rediculous, so small)
snacks (that don't get too messy)

Hope all goes well tomorrow x x x

I forgot about buying in some more dummies damn, she has weird shaped ones from tommee tippee I hope they sell them over there on no argh panic mode.I only have two here and she loses one almost every other day. Hope boots will have them at duty free.

Thank you everyone for yourhelp it realy is apprieciated!

I just ordered a a Cares - Kids Fly Safe belt for DS as DH is working in the states at the moment.
I am flying in a few weeks time and if he gets his own seat (he will be 2 in one months time) I will let you know how it works out.
I just dread the day I would have to drag around a car seat to fly with him so this seems like the sensible solution.

Travel long haul with baby

Hi Ladies
All going well we are taking Alex to Canada in 2 weeks time and i was wondering if anyone had taken their LO on a long haul flight recently. Alex will be just over 7 mths old and i have read up loads about how to deal with the flight and what to pack but would love some 1st hand feedback.

With the terror attack on the us aircraft over christmas i know security is going to be tight and at the moment that's the only part of the trip i'm dreading. Because it's a 10 hr flight we have booked alex his own seat to give us some extra space and on the way out we have the bulkhead seats so we can have a skycot. Our friends flew over from Japan for christmas with their 9 mth old and ended up pacing the plane for most of the flight, i'm hoping alex will be better than that, but i have a feeling those great days of catching up on loads of movies and sleep are gone :snigger:

Hi Cazc,
I've never deliberately done long haul (although we are toying with the idea of a Caribbean holidya this year) but last year our flight was delayed on the way back from Cyprus so we were on the plane for 8 hours with a nearly 3 year old and a 5 month old. Actually it wasn't that bad, DD1 was just potty trained and wet herself :rolleyes: but the staff were great and changed the cover on her seat. Actually I think an older child is harder than a baby, babies are amused by new faces and will often sleep. There were 4 adults sharing the responsibility for the 2 of them so that made life easier. We took plenty of toys and books. Those kids magazines with a free bit of plastic tat are really good, we get the Cbeebies one usually. We also find snacks useful, both girls will calm down almost instantly if you give them food, I don't know where they get that from [zx062] , but I would advise healthy ish stuff like fruit, cheese and bread rather than anything too sugary which is likely to make your child giddy, and water to drink. And wipes for cleaning up after wards. If there is a favourite teddy, then of course you need him too. Plan for delays also if you can, extra nappies, a full pack of wipes and extra milk if you aren't bf. We found lots to occupy DD in the airport, looking at shops etc... so waiting to get on the plane wasn't so much of a problem. Security checks were thorough so time consuming but again, we played I spy etc.. I can't remember what DD2 was like so she must have behaved! There's usually someone in the queue who thinks your baby is lovely and will smile and play peepo, so take advantage It helps remember that if your baby cries and people are disturbed by it, then they only have to put up with it for the duration of the flight so its tough! For a baby, crying is a way of reducing pressure in their ears when the plane is landing. I'm starting to waffle now, its obviously far too long since I had a holiday and I need to book another purely so that I can advise other mums on the best way to do it, the things I have to do for this site!

I know of parents who automatically give their child a dose of something which will sedate them when flying, like piriton or medised. Its not something I would advise, I think children should only have drugs when its for their own benefit, and to be honest, I've never felt the need to do it.

What age did you take your baby on holiday?

Hi ,



I know i am jumping the gun a bit, but we always go away for our anniversary which is in June.

My baby is due on 10th April, do you think it would be ok to take her.him with us?, we always go to a caravan at Blackpool would it be too cold for the baby?

Hi Kat

It depends on the weather, we were away in June last year and it was roastin !

I reckon you will be fine taking the baby as long as you are prepared for the weather to go either way ( but my attitude to that pretty much runs to - there will be a shop nearby if i need blankets or suncream etc )
Isla's first holidays were all caravans ( first one she was only a few months old ) remember they usually have heating in them as well and a lot of the sites let you hire baby equipment as well.

I say go for it !

Babies are ultimately portable hun, and I reckon a caravan in June will be just fine. I took my no 3 son to Italy in my lorry (I was a self employed haulier and was down a driver so had to do a job!) when he was just 6 weeks old. I also took him and no 4 child to Austria in the lorry when he was 13 months and she was just 4 weeks old. It was fine, they were fine and I have great memories of it. The weather in June is usually pretty warm here, and anyway, you can always take blankets or warmer clothes for bubs if it is a little cooler.

Just thought i'd let you know that we made it to canada pretty smoothly, customs was a breeze at heathrow, and Alex was brilliant on the plane , even slept for 3 hours (not in 1 go but 3hrs none the less)

Adjusting to Canada time is taking a bit to get used to (8hrs behind uk), but i think by the end of the trip we'll have it licked :snigger:

Worst thing so far has been having milk and baby food confiscated by customs, they let us keep the ready made sma i'd brought to keep s going a few days but the rest was taken. We visited a safeway and a drugstore yesterday and there isn't much choice, nothing i recognise and it's all really expensive but today when we reach victoria we will have to bite the bullet and get some as my supply of cartons is almost out.

right its 2am here and i need to see if i can get the monkey back to sleep

We are just back from a long haul holiday to Mauritius. The girls suprised me by being completely wonderful on the flight, sleeping 8 out of 12 hours on the outward journey which was a night flight. The flight home was a bit harder because the flight took off at 9.30am so the girls were awake for much of the time, but they were amused by CBeebies for a while even though they didn't get the hang of the headphones and watched it without sound. We made sure they napped and ate at the usual times which gave us some structure to the day. Crucial to surviving a longhaul flight is booking the bassinets so there is somewhere to put the babies down to sleep, and I don't think I will ever forget Isabelle on her perch waving at the cabin with everyone waving back at her.

We chose Mauritius because there is only a 3 hour time difference and the Mauritian people really cherish children. The girls were spoken to by name by everyone from the gardeners, cleaners and security guards right through to the hotel manager. High chairs always appeared by magic when needed, age appropriate food was always freshly prepared for them - grilled sea bass and mashed potatos were a big hit - and there was plentiful babysitting at reasonable prices, meaning that we were able to have a relaxing lunch and an hour or so on a sunbed whilst the girls took their afternoon nap and could go out every night. There was also a fabulous kids club that they went to for a couple of hour each day and they thoroughly enjoyed finger painting, paddling, playing with new toys etc. They loved it and had a real sparkle in their eyes the whole time we were there.

We had no problem getting formula and baby food through customs. They just required me to open a couple of cartons and taste it, and I poured the open cartons into ready sterlised bottles which I used on the plane.
