Moving with a small child

Moving with a small child

Moving when you have a small child is difficult, but possible. Take your time. Plan your move thoughtfully and be patient, in order, you can help your child to adapt to the trip and the environment.

Do you have a small child? Try these eight easy tips to move with your child carefree.

1. Pack the things you don’t need during the move in advance

When you start packing your baby’s room, first pick up the non-essential items. This reduces the pressure associated with trying to find what the child needs and collect things.

2. Pack a bag for your child

Then start packing a bag for your child, which includes items that you will need during the move and a couple of days after that. For example, a lot of diapers, clean items, and supplies for feeding, if necessary. Also create a small first-aid kit, for example, with painkillers or diaper rash cream.

3. Find a new pediatrician

Find out your new pediatrician and where your nearest medical facility is situated if you are moving to an unfamiliar area. Ask your former pediatrician for medical records before your departure so that you have the right information for your doctor in case of an emergency.

4. Bring food and drinks with you.

Pack a bag of drinks and food for snacks, and try not to make unnecessary stops along the way that can wake or upset a sleeping child.

5. Do not take chances to save time

Do not try to save time by feeding your baby on the go. Always stop before feeding your baby to ensure safety and minimize the risk of injury in a collision or accident.

6. Do a quick check

When you arrive, conduct a quick but thorough safety check to protect your child in the new house. This may include closing outlets or buffering sharp corners.

7. Unpack and prepare your child’s room first

First, prepare the child’s room so that you have an organized and calm place in the evening and at night. This will allow you to work for the rest of the house without worrying about waking the sleeping baby.

8. Entrust the move to professionals

Make the entire relocation experience less stressful for yourself by hiring professional movers. You have enough to worry about, let a professional moving company take care of the rest.

Besides, plan to take your time, stay rested, and eat well throughout the trip so that you can remain calm and composed.

    Hired these guys two weeks ago and they did a great job with moving some stuff from my dental office to the storage. They were quick and careful with all the equipment, so you can definitely trust them with fragile and expensive stuff. Also, they have reasonable rates which and friendly stuff that knew what they were doing. Thank you guys one more time!

    With the help of professional movers from GGM, we had a smooth transition of moving our belongings fron our home in one side of town to the other. Brian and Adam were professional, on time (arrived 15 min. earlier than promised), and most of all, they worked non stop and we had to prompt them to take breaks. They took the care to wrap furniture and fragile items like T.V. and glass table tops. We can't thank them enough for their help and will definitely refer GGM to others. And of course, call on them again for future moves.

    I had a wonderful move from the Bay Area to SoCal. Kiryl is responsive, professional and thorough. All of my items were moved smoothly and carefully. Not one thing was missing or broken. Compared to the other big box movers, Global Gentle is super affordable, and the quality is excellent. I will certainly use Global Gentle for my next move in SoCal.
