Learn from the experts about what to do if your baby gets sick abroad
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.
