body pain due to traveling

My baby is 7 months old. We have been traveling alot from last few days and he gets very cranky all the time. I try to soothe him. It seems he has some body pain, as when I try to massage him or press him gently, he relaxes. Do infants get body pain due to traveling? Can I give some medicine to relieve my baby?

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    As you are traveling a lot, it may add to your baby's fatigue. Because traveling may disturb their sleep/eating pattern and this alteration in schedule makes babies cranky or fussy. They even get excessively stimulated because of changing and new environment. Best way to manage babies is to keep their schedule fixed as much as possible, ensure proper sleep and diet.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
