In this blog entry, the residential moving experts here at Noah’s Ark Moving and Storage will detail some essential tips for safely moving with an infant.

Don’t Pack Travel Belongings for Your Baby.

 

It’s a mistake to pack any belongings that your baby might need during the move. This mistake is surprisingly common. You don’t want to realize that you don’t have an essential item for your baby during the moving process, having to stop your car and pick up new items. Some items that should never be secured inside moving trucks or packing boxes should be baby strollers, baby carrying strings, baby carrying slings, baby backpacks, coolers to keep baby food or baby bottles cold, baby clothing and layers, baby toys, and of course, pacifiers.

 

Moves sometimes don’t go according to plan. There might be traffic on the road, a car might break down, and strange weather might pop up. And although Noah’s Ark Moving and Storage are the premier experts at getting your move complete in a smooth manner as possible, you don’t want to risk being stuck on the road without essential items for your baby. Make sure to have all of these items on hand and easily accessible in your vehicle during the move itself.

 

Asking for help from a family member or a friend.

 

When moving trucks arrive at your location or arrive at your new property, it’s up to the people moving to communicate specific wishes with the mover. This involves thinking about specifics of packing, moving transportation or unpacking.

 

It’s a good idea to have a trusted friend or family member alongside you during the entire moving process who can help watch your baby. This allows you to focus on the important aspects of the moving process, ensuring that you don’t overlook or forget to provide specific instructions to your move.

 

There’s certain small details like electricity and natural gas activation, painting instructions, mail deliveries and much more. All of these things need to be considered with extra thought and care, which is why it’s a good idea to have childcare already be taken care of during the moving process.

 

Backup Plans

 

If for some reason your home cannot be slept in during the first night of moving due to key issues, paint fumes, or anything you can possibly imagine. It would be very useful to have a backup plan for somewhere that you can sleep with your infant or small child. Always have a fallback backup plan during your moving process, including staying at a hotel that’s child friendly, or a friend or a family member’s property nearby. It’s a good idea to have a backup plan for somewhere that you can stay during the moving process or even after you’ve arrived at your brand new property.
