Of all children, infants may be the easiest to travel with. They’re small and portable, can sleep anywhere, and will go wherever you want to go. Their demands are few — the want to eat when they’re hungry, sleep when they’re sleepy and have a clean diaper when the need arises. No matter where you’re going on your holiday vacation, for the most part an infant will be a good sport about it.

Fast forward a year and you’re vacationing with a baby and staying in our OBX beach house rentals. A baby who isn’t as small, who often can’t sleep even when they very much need to, and who isn’t hesitant for a moment to let you know they don’t agree with whatever is going on at the moment, can be a challenge to the best of parents.

When you’re bringing a baby on vacation with you we do recommend one of our OBX beach house rentals because of the spaciousness and because you’ll have your own kitchen. In addition, you’ll have separate bedrooms so that when the baby needs to take a nap, they will have their own quiet room.

Try to stay on the same schedule as you are on at home. As opposed to the baby accompanying you wherever you go and whatever you do, your itinerary should revolve around the baby’s schedule. Veer off this path and you’re asking for trouble in the form of an unhappy baby.

Always plan on doing less when you’re traveling with a baby and plan on it taking longer, no matter what you’re doing. Then just r-e-l-a-x and enjoy the ride. Our OBX beach house rentals will have you positioned in one of the most beautiful areas of the country so make the most of it this holiday season.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Shoreline OBX!
