Toddler car safety measures

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post but the views are my own.

Last month, we had been on a trip to Udaipur. This was our first ever long trip with K. We were all excited and geared up. This was going to be a complete road trip but since we had some changes in plan at the end moment we took the flight while going and retuned via road.

Surviving a car journey with a toddler isn’t easy. But, if you are family like ours who loves road trips and vacations, you got to search some way out.

No I am not writing about how we survived the road trip here. Instead I am going to write about one major mistake we did on a trip.

Mistakes do happen by all of us. But the important part is learning from mistakes. I learnt from my experience and you too can learn from my experience.

Though we didn’t take the car seat and highly regret it. I would highly recommend taking the car seat for the following reasons

Safety:

No matter how safe you drive or how careful you are while driving. Accidents takes place unexpectedly and what if you have your baby in the car. A car seat is the best possible way to protect a child in an accident. The car seats are designed in such a way that it helps babies to be the safest when accidents happen.

Protection and Comfort:

The car seat is the best possible way to be in a natural position when you travel. A baby may want to nap or relax and the best place for this is the car seat. The cushions and soft paddling give them their much-needed comfort.

Keeping the toddler seated:

 

A toddler just won’t sit at one place in any way, anywhere forget cars. A car seat is of much help when we have toddler, full of energy. A car seat makes them comfortable and seated and everyone around can be at peace. Though to survive the car seat also you will need some snacks and play

Comfort to parents:

As a parent when the baby is in your lap throughout the journey, which is anyway not recommended will lead to aches. With the help of the car seat both the baby and parents are comfortable.

COMFORT OR COURAGE – what to choose when travelling with a baby?

I am a social being. I would go mad if I had not meet people. To keep my urge of socialising going, I meet people and travel to places with friends and family.

We all know parenting dramatically changes our life. However, we need to keep it going and   so we planned to travel with our boy this vacation and noticed how the plans kept changing, keeping him in mind.

Planning a travel is so much fun. We had our vacation planned up quite well. I had gathered a lot of courage and planned an 8/10 hours of road trip to Gujarat. The couple who were accompanying us came with one other exciting travel plan.

The new plan was to travel to one of the cold places in the North. This excited me as I have never witnessed mountains with snow or for that matter even a snow fall. I wanted to go but I was constantly thinking if I will be able to do a comfortable vacation with my boy to such a place.

I asked several friends and took their view points. Most of them asked me to go ahead with the plan. Some asked me to think over the travelling time and cold temperature there. This left me thinking.  After considering suggestions of my friends and a final discussion with my husband we finally gave up. I didn’t have the courage to travel with my 1 year old to a place so cold and neither I wanted to travel with him in the ghats.

We chose comfort over courage this time and didn’t go ahead with the plan. But thankfully we worked out something and are travelling to Udaipur now.

Why I chose to go to Udaipur?
  • It is a plateau. So, travelling will be easier as compared to the mountains.
  • the climate of the place when I visit will be quite pleasant, so that’s an advantage.
  • It’s quite close to Mumbai, so travelling time won’t be much.
  • Travelling is never done free. Some good offers attracted us to visit the city.

 

So at the end, you can choose either courage or comfort when travelling with a baby.
