If Your Baby Gets Sick
Germs and viruses unfortunately can interrupt the most carefully planned vacation. If you are traveling when your baby gets sick, you have a couple of options.
You've got your first aid kit with you, and you may be able to treat the symptoms and continue the fun.
You can call your pediatrician and ask for advice — and even a prescription. For example, if you're fairly certain that it's yet another ear infection, your doctor might be willing to call in a prescription for antibiotics. This is more likely if your child has had multiple ear infections and you are fairly certain that this is just another one.
You can ask the hotel for a recommendation for a local doctor who would be willing to see your baby.
You can take your baby to the Emergency Room at a local hospital or to a walk-in clinic.
If you are traveling abroad, plan ahead and find the name and location of a children's hospital or English-speaking hospital. You can also call the U.S. embassy and ask for advice in locating medical help and/or a translator.
