While even the best of sleepers can have a difficult time sleeping away from home here are a few things you can do to help sleep go more smoothly while on vacation...
*Try to follow your child's regular schedule (eating, naps & bedtime) as much as possible.
*When you arrive at your destination, spend time with your little one in the room where he/she will be sleeping to help him/her become more acclimated and comfortable.
*Bringing along familiar things from home can be comforting. Consider packing your own crib sheet, night light, your child's lovey, books that are a part of your child's bedtime routine, etc.
*If you are traveling across time zones it is best to switch your child to his/her usual wake/sleep times according to the new clock. Exposure to sunlight (particularly in the morning) can help the body adjust.
*Enjoy your vacation! If your child's sleep gets off course a little bit you can always work on readjusting when you're back home.
