How to Get Baby to Sleep While Out: Traveling, Trips, and Vacation Tips

Posted on: December 1st, 2014 by Violet No Comments

Wondering how to get your baby to sleep while out and away from home? I get this question a lot during springtime and early summer. Getting a baby to nap during outings, trips, and vacation can be nerve wrecking. With the warm weather and summer approaching everyone wants to know how to take their baby out without constantly worrying about their sleep. It’s actually pretty simple, this dilemma can be solved in two easy steps.
First, teach your baby independent sleep. A baby that is “sleep trained” and is able to fall asleep on their own, will be able to do it just about anywhere. It’s one of the best parts of sleep training. Learn how to how to do that with your baby in this article about “Teaching Your Baby to Self Settle
 
Second, bring something familiar from home that your baby associates with going to sleep. A favorite blanket, stuffed animal, some white noise on your iPhone. Anything that reminds your baby of sleep. Here’s my little one, napping while out. She’s cuddled next to my nursing cover with her dolly.

If you are vacationing away from home, bring a pack n play. I always recommend that a baby has their own sleep space even while away from home. If you don’t bed share at home, there’s no reason to start that habit while on vacation. And that goes for bedtime routine. If you don’t nurse or rock your baby to sleep at home, don’t start. Follow the same bedtime routine you have at home. It may take a little bit more effort to get your baby to sleep in a new environment, but the effort is worth it when compared to the work you will have to do to break a new habit that was formed while vacationing.
Getting a baby to sleep while away from home does not have to be a headache and constant worry. Having your baby to fall asleep easily and peacefully while still enjoying yourself during the warm weather is just one of the benefits of teaching your baby independent sleep. If your not sure where to get started. I would be glad to help you with the whole process. Have you considered one of my Sleep Consultation Packages?
