Here are some tips and suggestions for enjoying a successful vacation with your baby.

Good advice for stress-free vacations: how young parents who are also avid travelers can enjoy their stay. In the mountains or on the beach, Club Med offers exclusive services designed especially for kids.

Vacations with a baby: precautions to take before you leave home

If you're heading to a destination less than 300 miles from your home, a car is still the best way to travel. If your Resort is more than 600 miles away, then flying becomes a necessity. Your baby can travel by air from the age of 2 weeks. 

To ensure their eardrums adjust gradually, feed them just before take-off and landing. If you're off to the mountains, take regular breaks so they can get used to the change in altitude gradually. 

Whichever destination you choose, make an appointment to see your pediatrician before you go. If you want your little one to join a children's club, request a certificate stating they are fit enough to take part in activities. 

Traveling with a newborn can be a real pleasure when you know they'll be cared for in the right conditions. That's why Club Med offers numerous baby-friendly destinations throughout the world.

Baby's travel bag essentials

Whether you're going to the sea or the mountains, be sure to put some mineral sunscreen with a high SPF in your baby's travel bag. Bring along vaccination certificates and current medications. Make sure you pack enough for the entire length of your stay. Forgot something? No problem: first aid products can be bought in the Club Med store.

Leave your kitchen equipment at home. Club Med Baby Welcome®,* available at certain Resorts, makes your vacation easier by setting baby equipment up in your room. You'll also find food adapted to the age of your little one in a Baby Corner, Baby Restaurant, and/or baby feeding room. 

*Included in your all-inclusive package, this service must be requested during your booking.
