Don’t forget bringing a copy of the child’s vaccination record and a first aids kit with everything you consider essential: sterile gauze, antiseptic solution, plasters, thermometer, and antipyretics. Of course, if your kid needs a particular medicine, be sure you bring the amount of dose needed for the days you will be traveling.
When traveling, schedules, food and activities change. Normally, you adapt to the schedules of the country your visit, you try their food and discover the activities they have to offer. For kids, this changes can sometimes imply discomfort and in some cases, it can cause health consequences. Diarrhea is a very common problem.
