Salve shared the very first picture of her little princess, a cherubic beauty, at the Goa Airport. She also expressed her joy of becoming a new mum in a few simple lines and we bet all mothers would agree with her a 100 percent!

Along with this adorable picture of her baby peeking out the window she wrote: "Mommy will there be angels in the clouds" ... "Maybe but I know I have one right here in my arms". Firat Flight !! Bye Goa ....Hello Bombay. #babytravels #firstflight #mommynbaby #aryakikahani #travelbuddies #babystories #airport #goa #bombay #aeroplanes #instapic #babyonboard #babygirl"

Tips for travelling with a baby

If you are a new mum like Salve you are probably busy with feeds, changing diapers and getting your baby to adapt to a napping schedule.

But while babies may need a whole lot of attention, you can easily travel with a two or three-month-old if your travel is simple and low-key. Just as Salve did!

At this age, the babies would be clinging on to you for support and will not be running around or getting into trouble. In addition, they would not even know the difference in traveling if it is a short distance. But here's how you can travel with your newborn effortlessly.

#1 Safety and health

  • While packing your bags, make sure you carry a first-aid kit, which includes prescription medicines and ointments for scrapes and cuts among other things.
  • Keep an emergency sheet handy so you have all the emergency numbers and names of people to contact in case there is any health related issue while travelling.
  • If you are flying, inform the airlines beforehand that you have a baby with you. Most Indian airlines have the facility to help new mothers travel safely with their newborns.
  • During the flight, your baby's ear may hurt due to the air pressure, so you can encourage him to breastfeed on suckle on something so it helps ease the effect on his fragile ears.

#2 Food during travel

  • If your baby is breastfeeding, then you don't have to worry too much except keep a few sanitised bottles for extra feeds. If however, he is on formula, you might want to carry those foods items including a hot thermos and extra bottled water.
  • Check with the airlines (if you are travelling via flight) about carrying formula feed. Many airlines have strict policies against such packets, but even if they don't, cross-check before you depart.
  • If your baby has started solids, make sure to bring along extra box of food for him, even if it is a short journey. Carry his bib and other items that you usually use to feed your little one.

#3 Travel gear

  • Make sure to carry all the travel gear such as the pram, or baby carrier whenever you are travelling with a baby. This also includes a diaper bag and a changing bag. Salve also travelled with her baby gear and was able to use it easily when she landed.
  • Carry extra pair of clothes in your baby bag as well. You can also keep them in plastic bags that you can carry if you do not have a changing bag.
  • You can also carry a front sling and make sure to check the height limitations of the seat in which you will be travelling with your baby.
  • Make sure to check the temperature of the place you are travelling to and dress your baby accordingly.
