    A routine will help you not only during the relocation but also when you arrive at the new home and need to set up a nursery – do it while the baby is asleep.

    Moving long distance with a newborn means that you’ll need a packing bag for several days

    Packing a bag with all of the baby’s necessities is a must.
    What to bring when you’re moving long distance with a newborn:

    • Diapers – a lot
    • Food for baby
    • Pacifiers
    • Baby toys and blanket
    • Clean clothes

    Packing the baby bag for more than one day is a good idea. That way, you’ll have everything ready when you arrive at the new apartment, and you won’t have to hurry to unpack the stove, fridge, and the rest of the appliances. You’ll be able to devote yourself to unpacking the baby’s nursery and setting it up.

    Have someone over to watch the baby while your items are being handled

    Moving long distance often includes many obstacles. When you’re moving, you’ll need the help of a friend or a good family member. When the movers arrive, chances are that the noise and fuss will disturb the baby. You should ask someone to take care of your newborn for a few hours until the move is done. When all of the trucks have set off and all you need to do is get in the car and drive away, that would be the best moment to pick up the baby. That way, the baby will be safe and avoid all the noise. This tactic is also good for you. You will think about the relocation that’s going on at the moment and not worry about the baby.

    Having someone to take care of your baby during the move will help you focus on the move while also keeping the baby away from the noise.

    Unpack the child’s room first

    Setting up a nursery should be your number one priority when you’re helping your kids to settle into a new home. When you arrive at the new apartment tell the movers where they should place the crib and other baby furniture. They will be glad to help you, and you can unpack the baby items as soon as you arrive. If someone can take care of your baby while you’re doing it, that would make the process most efficient. If not, you can do it while the baby is asleep. Don’t forget to baby-proof your new home over time.

    Four guys came from Park moving 2 weeks ago to move my family. Not only were they efficient and hard working, but extremely friendly and accommodating. I will absolutely be using them in the future when we get moved into our new home. We checked with several places before deciding on this company and I'm very pleased with our decision. I highly recommend Park Moving to anyone looking for moving services.
