If traveling to India with a baby or toddler be sure to bring enough baby formula and baby food for your trip. Diapers can be readily found but may not be very good quality. The roads and sidewalks are generally too crowded and bumpy for a stroller. A lightweight stroller, however, will be useful at some tourist attractions. A baby knapsack carrier is ideal. Be sure to only drink bottled water, be fully vaccinated and keep your toddler or baby's hands very clean with hand sanitizer. They will get lots of attention here!
Hire a Guide whenever possible at the sights. Try to find a guide that will engage your child. Most monuments will have guides outside and are very cheap to hire. They can really help explain the attraction's history and make your visit more interesting and meaningful!
Citizens from most countries will require a visa. You must arrange this in advance-there is no visa on arrival option. Children of all ages require a visa for their family holidays to India.
