Going on holiday with children can be stressful at the best of times, but when one or all of your children have a milk intolerance then travelling with children with a milk intolerance can make it even more stressful. Both our boys are milk intolerant (although our eldest has now outgrown it), but this for us is not a reason not to go travelling or on holiday. As long as you are prepared and have done some research before you arrive then you should be okay while away on holiday.
Here are our top 3 tips for going on holiday with children with milk intolerance.
Some Tips For Children With A Milk Intolerance
- Make sure you take 1 or 2 more tins extra of their special formula with you than what you think you will need. If going travelling for a long time, then you could see if the formula is available in the country you are going too.
- Take snacks/food etc with you (though you are best checking the country’s guidelines for what you can take into the country) This can be especially handy for when travelling be it flying or driving etc. Children always seem to want to eat and having a stock pile of suitable food will make it less stressful.
- Learn what the local language is for milk. The write it down so when you go to the shops or out to a restaurant you can check the ingredients. We have in the past done a shout out on Facebook to see if anyone knows someone who speaks the language before we arrive. This means we can then ask them to translate something suitable for us to use while away.
