Back to the basics when you are home again
If you have followed these baby sleep tips while traveling, then going back home and to your regular schedule should be fairly painless. If everything went out of the window and you are feeling back at ground zero, don’t panic! You have gotten your little one on a predictable schedule before, and you can do it again! All hope is not lost, just be patient and consistent and it will fall back into place.
No matter what, keep in mind that travels are temporary! This one trip will not make or break your baby, so don’t put too much pressure on yourself or your child. Try to enjoy the process, roll with the punches, and go with the flow the very best you can. Believe it or not, it does get easier with practice and you will learn along the way the things that you can do to stay on track and avoid a breakdown in sleep patterns. Every child is different, and everyone responds differently to the stressors of travel. Be kind to yourself and love your baby, in the end, that’s what they truly need from you.
Traveling with children is hard! But it's also incredibly rewarding. My overall best advice is to do your best, be patient, and try to be as consistent as you can with as many things as you can. Once you are back home, you can do some tweaking to get things back on track – there’s nothing that can’t be undone once you are back home.
