When we become parents we become extra conscious about our kids. We tend to take the utmost care possible to make sure that our kids are fine. It is our duty as parents to assure the safety of our kids. There is a constant need of attention for the toddlers and young children, especially during travel trips. There are certain safety measures that parents have to take into consideration while traveling along with the kids. Some of these include:

1. An Individual Seat With Safety Belt
It is not advisable for the parents to carry their children in their lap during traveling trips. As even the parents get tired holding them throughout the journey and even the child gets awkward. So, it is a must to give an individual seat with a seat belt for a safe and relaxed journey.

2. Get The Necessities
Being parents you have to make sure that you carry all the essential things diapers, wipes, medicines and other essentials for the kids as they are prone toward infections.

3. Carry Safe Toys
Grabbing the attention of kids is very difficult. They easily get bored out of the traveling period due to the long journeys and trips. Make sure that you do not carry the toys which might cause harm and add extra luggage to your pile. Choose safe toys that they like and are safe.

4. Accompany Your Child
Ensure that your child is safe where ever they go. Do not let them mingle with the strangers. Keep an eye on them. Also accompany and assist your child where ever they go.

5. Write Number On The Palm/Hands
It is very important for you as a parent to write your phone number on the palm or hands of your child especially while traveling by metro or train. In case you child gets unnoticeable the other person can always contact on the number mentioned on the palm as a sign of safety when they go lost. Or you may simply keep a child safety kit with your child that includes an identification card for your kid. The kit is extremely helpful especially when your child goes missing during trips.

6. Make Them Wear Bright Colors
Making your kids wear bright color clothes is a way to find your child in the crowd. It would be easy to verify the color of the dress and this will help you to find them by any chance if they tend to run away.

7. Carry Baby Products & Sanitize the Lavatory
If you are taking your child to the general washrooms assure that you first sanitize the seats with products such as toilet sanitizers (pee safe) and then later use wipes to clean them. Also make sure that the sanitize their hands with a hand sanitizer to stay away from infections.

8. Keep The Photo Identity Of Parents
Always keep a photo identity of yours in your pockets when you are out with your child. In case of kidnapping or accidents, this photo identity card can help you find out your kid and remaining family.

9. Carry Snack & Other Food Products
You are aware about the eating patterns of the child and on the other hand you have to ensure that you child do not crave for unhealthy food items. Ensure you have all the storage of sufficient food products that your child requires. Do not make them eat anything from the shop or other unknown food outlets.

10. Always keep a medical kit handy
