Traveling with a toddler takes planning!

Indirectly, your child will determine the location of your vacation … Yes! Indeed, until the age of 18 months, destinations with a temperate climate are preferred. And from 2 to 3 years, distant destinations can be considered. However, where vaccines are mandatory and where the risks of malaria and gastroenteritis are high. These are not really resorts tailored to toddlers …

Jet lag is another factor to consider. Be sure to follow the rhythm of the child. It is not recommended to select destinations in more than three hours time difference. This could disrupt the biological clock of the toddler, and the tire unnecessarily.

Make sure your diet

Just because you’re on vacation you should relax your attention. So when you give fruits and vegetables to your toddler, make sure they are cooked or peeled. Proper hydration is crucial. If you go in a hot country, do not make him drink tap water. And this recommendation applies to the whole family. Prefer bottled water, you uncap yourself. Finally, make sure the meat you serve it is cooked. If you would use cheese, make sure it is made from pasteurized milk. This will avoid the risk of food poisoning.
