After having a baby, the idea of a vacation seems like a far off dream in a time that once was. The thought of packing baby up and lugging everything to the beach for a few days in the sun can seem like a daunting task. Rest assured your vacation days are not over, instead a new chapter has become and your vacations will be filled with memory-making moments and family fun. While some vacations aren’t family or baby friendly, there are still some great ways to get away. If you need a break from the daily grind here are some terrific ideas for a baby-friendly Fun Escape Room.
Nature Trips: Nature oriented trips are fun for the whole family. They not only provide an excellent bonding experience for your family, but they are a great way to learn about nature and the world around you. Nature trips that involve camping or lodging in the woods are a great cheap way to enjoy a few days or a week with the ones you love while you engage in activities like bike riding, hunting, or simply sitting around a fire. Many camp grounds offer activates for children of all ages so ask the site you choose about what kind of activities they offer.
Bed and Breakfast: A bed and breakfast can be a great way to get away from your home with all the luxuries of being home. When choosing a bed and breakfast it’s a good idea to find out how kid friendly they are before you book a room. If you’re not sure how kid friendly the establishment you’re looking at is, while speaking onto them on the phone ask about cribs and other baby necessities see how they react. If they seem less than thrilled than continue your search for the perfect getaway destination. While some bed and breakfast rooming is located in one central location others offer quarters that are separate from the house. This is great if you’re worried about staying in a hotel and having your little one wake everyone on the floor for an early morning feeding. Many of these places will deliver meals right to your door and therefore there is no reason to have to gather the baby and all his or her necessities to grab a bite to eat.
Beach: Nothing is more relaxing than a great vacation to the warm, balmy, beach. The beach can provide your little ones with endless amount of excitement. Even the baby will have fun splashing in the water, playing in the sand, and watching you build him or her sand castle. Another great thing about a beach vacation is that there are plenty of spots that are conducive to families therefore, you won’t have to worry about being the only one with a screaming infant. If you do plan a family vacation to the beach, make sure to bring plenty of sun screens, hats, and even a portable crib so your baby stays safe at all times.
While the vacations listed above can be great for planning a get away with the baby, there are some things you should steer clear of. Things like cruises, amusement parks, and foreign travel are vacation plans you should save until your baby is older or until you can get away alone for awhile. Not only are those vacations not very conducive to infants, but they will only end up stressing you and your partner out, annoying guests who don’t have or didn’t’ bring their children, and ultimately wasting your time and especially your money.
