Sleep is extremely important for a child, and therefore, it is also important that you ensure that the conditions for taking a nap are ideal, even when outside the home. A travel cot is an indispensable item, whether you are going on holiday, staying the night with the grandparents or if the child simply needs a map while you are on the go. BabyDan’s transportable bed rail is also great to bring along for slightly older children when travelling, as this allows them to sleep safely in a bed that is unfamiliar to them as it prevents anyone from falling out of bed. If you are on the move with the pram, it is very important that you have a pram harness so that the child does not fall off the pram while taking a nap.
More about sleeping
No matter how long or how far you are travelling away from home, there are a thousand things that need to be packed and brought along when you have a little one in the family. You need to pack pacifiers, diapers, change of clothes, wet wipes, cloth diapers, snacks, toys and so on and so on. However, one of the most important items to remember to pack if you are going away for more than a few hours is equipment for the child’s afternoon nap and night time sleep. A travel cot is definitely one of the most important things to have when taking a long trip.
There is a reason that some people call a travel cot a weekend cot - it is extremely practical to bring along on weekend trips. It is also a great item to have for the afternoon nap and night time sleep. Some children sleep best in their own beds, so it can be really difficult to get him or her to fall asleep somewhere else. However, you can solve this challenge by making sure that the child has a travel cot, allowing him or her to sleep in a familiar bed.
The travel cot from BabyDan may remind the child of his or her cot, making it a more familiar experience. You can place it anywhere you like, and you can also put it right next to your own bed to make the child feel even safer. To ensure that safety is top notch, the cot has high sides which mean that the child cannot crawl over the top. You can easily fold it up and bring it along on a trip. You can then fold it out again and set it up for your child’s afternoon nap or night’s sleep in just a few minutes. In its folded up state, it does not take up much space at all, so it is easy to bring along in the car, bus, train or plane.
Remember to complete the travel cot with a good mattress, duvet, pillow and great bedding, as this will ensure that your child sleeps safely and soundly.
A bed rail to go for the older children
When you are on the go, it can be a good idea to bring a bed rail if your child is a bit older, as this allows the child to sleep safely and soundly in a new bed, since the bed rail prevents the child from rolling out of bed. After all, when sleeping in an unfamiliar bed, it can be hard to sense the size of the bed. A bed rail can help to ensure that the child feels safe and secure during the night.
BabyDan’s bed rails are very easy to install and remove. You can also fold them, so the child can play in the bed during the day. This is a great option if, for example, the child is going to be spending the night with the grandparents or if you are going on holiday. Then you can easily bring the bed rail along in the travel bag and install it to the bed once it is time to sleep. The bed rail is made of fabric, so it is soft to lie up against and takes up almost no space when you are bringing it with you.
Make nap time in the pram a safe experience
When you are on the go, you probably brought along the pram so that the child can, among other things, take an afternoon nap. You can feel completely at ease letting your child sleep in the pram if he or she is wearing a pram harness, as a pram harness secures the child to the pram while also allowing for as much freedom of movement as possible. This prevents the child from being able to lean over the edge of the pram when he or she wakes up and wants to move around. Both pram harnesses from BabyDan are adjustable, so you can make them larger as the child grows. Like with all other BabyDan products, both the Lux harness and Dan 3 harness are, of course, entirely free of harmful substances. Therefore you can rest assured that both comfort, quality and safety are top notch when using the pram harness and other BabyDan products.
