The word “vacation” brings on an entirely new meaning when you have a baby. Those days of laying out by the pool with a drink in hand and no worries in the world are long gone! Now that you have a baby, it’s time to bring on the craziness.
I’ve started to feel like vacations are more like work than they are a vacation. There is a lot more time spent trying to keep the girls entertained and very little time for me to relax.
A lot of times it takes our little ones some time to transition during a vacation. Whether it’s the time change or just getting used to being in a different place, it can leave your little one feeling unsettled.
We are on our second week long vacation this month and Avery and I are headed out of town next week with just the two of us. With all of our traveling lately, I’ve learned that there are ways to help make the transition for her a lot easier and leaves me with a more relaxing and restful vacation.
Check out 5 ways that have helped me make the transition easier for the baby while on vacation.
