Vacations are a great way to begin enjoying your newly adopted baby or child. But there are some keys to remember when taking a vacation with your new little one.
- Take plenty of changes of clothing. Babies and children almost always have accidents and newly adoptive parents must think several changes per day to keep parents and child happy.
- Diapers, diapers and diaper wipes: You don’t want to run out. Yes, you can purchase these things at or near your vacation site, but don’t leave it to chance. Whether you’re camping in Zion Park or enjoying a horseback ride at Zion Park lodging, it’s vital to take along extras.
- Sunscreen and sun shading for your adopted child is vital. Begin early protecting that beautiful skin by making sure you add sun screen at regular intervals, have a sun hat and perhaps even sunglasses to protect those new little eyes as you hike Zion Park.
- Have a fully stocked first aid kit. By planning ahead for scrapes or bumps with your newly adopted child, you will be ready for any emergency. No matter how old the child, it’s interesting to note that many children get fevers on vacations, even in the beautiful Zion Park outdoors.
- Be flexible. Yes, you want to hike in the Zion Park back country, but is your newly adopted child ready for that experience. Probably not. Besides do you want to carry all the changes of clothing, the diapers, the special camp bed and protection your child will need, perhaps this trip it would be wise to find a Zion Park lodging that suits your finances and needs.
