When going to the seaside with a child. What to take with you?


Traveling with small children does not always go smoothly. To take care of your baby's health, you need to anticipate various situations and properly assemble a travel kit. What is definitely worth taking with you, going on a summer vacation with your family?
Basic travel preparation:
A child's first aid kit takes up a lot of space in your luggage, but your child's health comes first. Transportation may break down on the way, there may not be a pharmacy in the vacation spot, and sometimes a bad feeling of well-being catches you unawares in the middle of the night.
Buying medicines in another country can be problematic, as many drugs have different trade names, stricter rules of dispensing and cost more. Bring medicines bought in advance in their original packaging and bring a prescription to avoid problems at customs.
Study the epidemiological situation in the resort. Depending on the country visited and the type of vacation, vaccination may be necessary.
