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 producing than when your child gets sick when you are away from home. But if you are well prepared, some of the stress can be alleviated. That’s why we have gathered information from trusted health professionals as well as 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 what are the international equivalents of local medicines.

How to keep your family health when traveling

Don’t let health concerns be an impediment to traveling with a baby. Some trusted information and the support of Club Bébé Voyage, can help you see that it really is possible to travel with toddlers. Bébé Voyage members have taken intercontinental flights with babies that require oxygen tanks, traveled throughout sub-Saharan Africa and other tropical regions and successfully navigated foreign hospitals and health providers.

Be sure to pick up our travel guides which have a specific section dedicated to travel health and medical issues in that 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 certainly no one wants to get sick while traveling, if you prepare for the worst and hope for the best then you will most likely be fine no matter the situation. Of course, the best medicine is prevention, so always try to maintain a healthy lifestyle and don’t throw out all your good habits when you are away from home. The basics of good food, good sleep and good hygiene apply when traveling too!
