Travel Health & Medical Advice

Bébé Voyage teams up with Dr. Steve Silvestro, pediatrician, dad and host of the Child Repair Guide podcast to bring you top information on travel health and medical advice. Few things are more anxiety-inducing than when your child gets sick away from home. But if you are well prepared, some of that stress can be alleviated. That’s why we have gathered information from trusted health professionals as well as from the experience of the larger Bébé Voyage community. Dr. Steve also reviews the health and medical advice in each of our travel guides so that you can better understand how health systems abroad work and the international equivalents of local medicines.

How to keep your family healthy when traveling

Don’t let health concerns be an impediment to traveling with a baby. With trusted information and the support of Bébé Voyage, you can see that it really is possible to travel with babies and toddlers. Bébé Voyage members have taken intercontinental flights with babies that require oxygen tanks, traveled throughout regions with minimal medical infrastructure, and successfully navigated foreign hospitals and health providers all over the world.

Be sure to pick up our travel guides. Each have a specific section dedicated to travel health and medical issues in that particular city. They cover how to find a pediatrician, what the best hospitals are for children and/or foreigners, what over-the-counter medications are locally available, and what their international equivalents are.

While no one wants to get sick while traveling, if you prepare for the worst and hope for the best, then you will probably be fine! Of course, the best medicine is prevention. Maintain a healthy lifestyle and good habits when you are away from home. The benefits of a healthy diet, adequate sleep, and good hygiene apply when traveling, too.
