Three Tips for Sharing a Hotel Room with your Baby


Traveling with your little ones can be a lot of fun. It allows the whole family to go out and explore the world, gives your children the chance to do some learning, and the parents can have great experiences too. There’s something so breathtaking about getting you to see a young child experience new sites, sounds, places, tastes, places, activities, and basically, have all the senses being indulged. It’s honestly super precious getting to see these little experiences for the first time and it makes family trips so worth it.

 This gives you and the whole family a chance to build memories that can last a lifetime. One of the biggest concerns and questions about going on trips and vacations with your baby is going to be the sleeping arrangement. At home, babies have their own nursery, and the parents get to have some space. This isn’t the case at all for hotel rooms. Usually, everyone is crammed into one little space unless you’re willing to spend some extra money on a suite. These are some helpful tips for parents to manage sleeping with their little ones in a hotel room.

Bring all needed equipment

You already know that you have to pack a ton of stuff for the day for your baby. This can include snacks, toys, the stroller, food, diapers, and basically anything and everything else that a little baby is going to need. These are all needed but it’s also super important to pack and prepare for the evenings as well. Think about what’s a part of your baby’s bedtime routine. Do they use a sound machine? Pack it! Read them bedtime stories? Do it. Do they have a favorite blanket? Don’t forget to pack it up too.

It’s important to make the bedtime routine feel completely normal for them. It’s also best to not bring their crib but something such as a Pod Moses Basket instead, but make sure you get them to use their new bed first for there may be struggles putting them to sleep. Just like older kids and adults, even babies can have a hard time falling asleep in an unfamiliar bed.

Don’t share a bed with your little one

Even on the off chance that you may have forgotten to pack your child’s crib or portable bed, you do not want your baby sleeping with you. If your baby sleeps alone at home, the same rule should apply when traveling. Sharing a bed with the baby is something that isn’t going to go well. Many hotels tend to have a rollaway crib or bassinet that they can rent out to guests for the night, try to book this in advance if you can. Even if you’re traveling abroad with your family, you just want to make sure that you’re well packed, prepared, and you can make any needed arrangements in advance.

Stick with your daily routine

When it comes to traveling, sticking to your normal daily routine can be pretty tough. But it’s best to try to stick to it as much as you can. If you and your family get up at a certain time each day, then it’s best to continue that. There are plenty of alarm apps that can help with that too. Everyone should try to eat and go to sleep around the same time as well. When it comes to traveling, schedules can be unpredictable but it’s going to help you and your baby sleep much easier when sticking to a routine.
