Health and Safety of New Born Baby
- Whenever you consider a newborn travel, make sure that you have a first-aid kit with you, having all the necessary supplies you might need on the go.
- If you are taking your baby in a car, ensure that the baby accompanies you by being on the back seat of the car and never in the front. Also make sure to place the back seat belt on your baby’s carrier or car seat to avoid falling off the seat while your baby is there with you for a ride.
- Avoid over crowded places and keep your baby with you all the time.
- When it comes to air travel for new born baby, do not forget to take pacifier, milk bottles, and your baby’s favourite toys to keep him or her engrossed during the flight.
