Starting a family doesn’t have to immediately mean that your plans to travel the world have to go away forever.
When you know how to get your child to sleep easily, suddenly traveling to other countries will feel a lot easier.
A woman named Jordi Lippe-McGraw told Insider her story of managing a life of travel with a toddler.
She managed to lull him to sleep while he spends time away from home on vacation.
She explained that after their wedding anniversary in 2015, she and her husband traveled all continents – before having children.
In 2018, she gave birth to her first son, but they weren’t ready to stop traveling just yet.
One of Jordi’s first tips when it comes to traveling with little ones is to request accessible bathrooms wherever you go.
When your child needs to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, it is much easier to deal with the situation when there is a toilet nearby.
Often you can request a free upgrade that includes an accessible bathroom.
She even mentioned that hotel bathrooms have proven to be ideal sleeping places for her child in the past.
Jordi’s second tip is to use something called a SlumberPod.
For those who have never heard of SlumberPods, they are blackout tents that conveniently slip over almost any existing hotel bed.
The purpose of SlumberPods is to provide enough darkness for your child to stick to their sleep schedule.
The SlumberPod protects them from sunlight that might enter through the hotel windows.
Jordi’s next tip is to pack a sound machine when traveling with your child.
Hotel noise can wake a child up in the middle of the night, whether it’s the loud ding of the elevator bell or the obnoxious laughter of party-goers in the hallways.
Sound machines can drown out any of those sticky noises.
Jordi’s final tip is to take the comforts of home with you when you travel.
Does your child have a favorite stuffed animal? If so, bring it with you!
Does your child like to fall asleep with a special blanket? Be sure to pack!
It is very important to ensure that your child can experience some of the same calm and peaceful sensations that they experience at home.
Having kids really doesn’t have to mean that your travel days are over for good.
