If you're traveling soon, or planning on putting your baby to bed somewhere do this ONE thing!

Regardless of if your baby is sleep trained or not, this one tip will help your baby go to sleep away from home.

But before I get to it, have you heard of FOMO?


{Fear of missing out}

I know I experienced it as an adult, and I remember feeling it as a kid, and your baby can experience it too.

What do I mean by this?

Here's the scenario:

You're staying with family, and you're outside, enjoying a campfire or something like this.

Your baby is enjoying all the attention and activity from friends and family.

Then- they are suddenly whisked away and put to bed!

They're thinking, "HEY!!! I was having fun!"

And then cue bedtime protest!

So here's how to avoid it:

Give your baby 10-15 minutes of time away from everyone BEFORE getting ready for bed.

This allows them to unwind, and feel tired.

Then once they start to feel tired, start their bedtime routine.

Here's the thing- by protecting your baby's bedtime, they'll get the sleep they need, feel more rested, and cope with all the extra activities.

This helps SO much with your overall trip enjoyment.

If you have family members or friends who say "Just keep them up, they'll be fine" but you know that your baby won't cope well and be up all night, hold firm! I believe in you!

Wishing you great travels!

Here for you,

Melody Patton
