Moving with a baby can be challenging, especially if you have a long distance to move and travel to get to your new home. Like the rest of the family, even though your baby is too young to fully understand what’s going on, they’ll pick up the stresses or calms of your moving household. Keeping your move organized, and relatively stress-free, will help calm infants before you even leave for your new home.
