I don’t understand at all why the statement about going to rest with the baby, on the sea, evokes negative emotions surrounding such a wave? Only one piece of advice is heard from all sides: You should be at home! But it does not sit. But now I know for sure that rest with a baby abroad at sea is real.
The main thing is that the baby does not suffer at all in the process of preparing for the trip, or during the movement. And ignorance of the language does not bother him. Live, yes rejoice! Mom is near, dad is near, a miracle as well.
So, I will dispel your fears.
Fear of moving
I guess I was lucky, but abroad with my daughter, who was not yet a year old, we went on a huge minibus. The husband took the seat out of the cabin, after which a huge space formed for us. We covered him with blankets, pillows, armed with a pack of diapers, wet wipes and went. Two days later, arrived at the scene.
The child on the road was absolutely adequate, he painted on paper, ate cookies, sucked his chest and, in my opinion, he didn’t care at all whether he was at home, at home, or somewhere else.
We crossed the border instantly, drove out so that our daughter slept just at that time. Nobody even woke her up, didn’t compare her with a passport.
Fear of a lot of things
As you already understood, I did not have this fear, because our car contained the entire wardrobe of the baby. But in fact, it took very little clothing. On the seashore she ran completely naked, we tried to pull her legs together. But they were haughtily thrown into the water or buried in the sand.
For the same reason, T-shirts got dirty a little, Panamas regularly bought on the spot, and we wore pants and blouse only for a night walk.
Fear of feeding
You can absolutely not be afraid than to feed the baby. You have the main strategic reserve with you – breast milk! If the baby wanted to eat, we quietly retired to the car, and there we had a snack.
Some mothers solved this problem differently. Also competently. They installed a children’s folding tent house on the beach and fed the baby doll in it or, on the spot, covered themselves with a towel.
If a child eats puree, meat, potatoes and fruits, then there is always a store nearby where you can buy groceries.
Kid and the sea
Our daughter to the sea did not stretch. We filled the boat with water for her, the level of centimeters was 10, and she splashed there, played, sang songs.
The same boat served as a big ship for her, on which we rolled her across the sea into calm. Another father entertained her swimming on a huge circle: he sat down, pressed his daughter back to his stomach, rowed with his second hand, and so they swam.
They came into the sea with her in her arms, but if she mastered, you could stand on the surf line, feel how the water caresses your feet and jump, scattering splashes.
But most of all my daughter liked to crawl through the sand, dig in it and sprinkle it on her head. Fortunately, there she could afford it, because there was an opportunity to quickly wash it off with sea water.
In fact, it took us only two days to adapt to the life, terrain, and behavior of the child. And the daughter quickly calmed down, began to take the surrounding, for granted. The rest was comfortable and interesting. Are two adults afraid of one baby?
When did you start to travel with children?
