Travel Safety Tips For Children

The holidays are a wonderful time to visit with family and friends, but a lot of traveling can be stressful on children. The American Academy of Pediatrics has provided a few tips to make things easier on everyone.

First, you'll want to keep in mind that not all homes are childproofed.

Always keep a list of emergency numbers with you when you travel. Know the local fire and police numbers, the national poison control number and how to contact your child's doctor.

Also, try to stick to your child's regular routine when on the road. Experts recommend being consistent with naps and bedtimes.

The number for poison control is 1-800-222-1222.
