Preparation for moving
When moving with small kids (babies and toddlers), the most important thing is to maintain the routine. Small kids can be sensitive to changes, and they like their familiar everyday schedule unchanged. The good thing here is to call a nanny, babysitter or one of the older siblings that is very close with the kid. In other words, you need someone close and responsible who will do the job properly. This way you can direct your attention to packing, DIY tasks, organizing, finding a good moving company and arranging many other things.
Another thing is how your kids will cope with stress. Babies and toddlers are not fully aware of what is going on around them. They need to do their regular things like sleeping, eating, playing, and need to feel the love. With that, they will handle moving without problems. They can be little confused at times but it is a short-lasting condition. In fact, they adapt much better and much faster than we do. Just show them that you are there for them and prepare all the things in time.
