Go on holiday with your baby
Are you planning your first vacation with your baby soon? Then preferably go by car if possible! This way you can take everything with you and you don’t have choice stress about what can and can’t go with you – and that’s great 😍 But before you go on a trip…
Choose a car seat with a reclining position or a travel cot
Your child should not sit in the sitting position for that long, because this is not good for the back. A lying position on your car seat is therefore ideal . For babies up to 70cm there is the Maxi Cosi Jade carrycot. With an ordinary car seat you run the risk that your little one will fall asleep with the head forward on the chest. Because the little ones lie down in the Jade, the breathing passages are completely free and they can sleep relaxed and safe. You can rent the Maxi Cosi Jade from € 15,- per week.
Make sure you have a free spot in the back seat
Chances are that one of the two parents will occasionally want to sit in the back with the baby and it is annoying to ‘convert’ the car on the way. Sitting in the back is the most useful when your baby is restless for a while. This way you don’t have to stop at every gas station, that makes the journey a lot faster and more relaxed without baby crying!
