• During take off and landing give your baby a bottle or a dummy to help stop their ears from popping.
• If yourchild gets bored in their seat take a walk with them to the galley area to stretch the legs and take a break.
• Be prepared if you’re travelling on a night flight, some parents think their child will sleep, but this often isn’t the case when away from their normal environment.
• Take a small blanket with you in case your child gets cold as many airlines don’t provide these on short flights.
• Dress your baby in clothes that are easy to get on and off for nappy changing - space is limited!
• Consider getting a baby sling for your journey. That way you can carry your baby and have two hands free to carry luggage.
• Pack your child’s favourite snacks so that you have food to hand if they want something to eat quickly.
• If your child is having an inflight meal, be prepared with alternatives in case they don’t like what they’re given.
• Ask cabin crew to heat baby milk well in advance of when you need it so that you have it ready for when the baby wants it.
• Kids love presents, so wrap up lots of small surprises for them that you can give to your child throughout the flight to keep them entertained and occupied.
