Moving with babies and small children introduces a new dynamic into a typically, already stressful situation. Many with kids must work around daily routines (naps, lunch times, bed times, etc.) and keep familiar items around to create as little disturbance as possible while also juggling packing and other moving details. At Humboldt, we aim to work with our customers who have kids to provide reasonable load and delivery times, whenever possible. Over the years, we have also seen families take a few additional steps to keep small children content during their move which may be helpful in making your move less stressful: And as you’ll see in the video below, our own president of Humboldt, Jim Sullivan has some first-hand experience in this area. Try to stay calm during the moving process as your children look to you as an example of how to react to a stressful and new situation. Before you bring your small child to their new home, take measures to childproof so they can roam freely in their new environment to become comfortable. Provide your child with comfort by carrying your child’s favorite toy(s) or stuffed animals with your personal goods. Do not pack comfort items where they may be out of reach for several days. This also insures no loss of irreplaceable items. Realize your baby’s temperament and attachment level and how they may react when you reach your new home. Plan on spending some extra time with your child when you arrive in your new home to help them adjust. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, moving can be stressful. Throw a few kids and a baby into the mix and you know it will be a day to remember. We just hope you’ll remember it as a new day in your life and that the moving crew you had (Shameless plug here…Boston moving company, Humboldt Storage and Moving) made it a day to remember…
