On arrival - the two day rule


One of the ‘rules’ that I try to abide by when travelling with my kids is to have enough essential supplies* to get us through the first two days after arrival at our desination - I call this the “two day rule”.The first two days of any trip are probably the most stressful. Once you have survived the plane trip you need to re-orientate yourself and your baby to your new environment. If you have flown to a new time zone then you also have to deal with the effects of jet lag. The last thing that you want to be doing is looking for a store that sells baby items while feeling you are about to drop off to sleep at any moment.

By having enough supplies you can ease yourself into your new environment - find out where the stores are, get used to communicating in a different language and hopefully not be too stressed out.

* Essential supplies include nappies/diapers, wipes, baby food and formula, juice or UHT milk boxes and any special snack foods.
