5 Tips Every Parent Must Read Before Traveling by Plane With a Baby!

Traveling with newborns or babies can be stressful. Here are five tips to help you feel prepared and enjoy your travels with your little one! 

  • Request the bulkhead row and a baby bassinet. 
  • Pack your carry-on strategically. Place items you will need during the flight such as diapers and your toiletries in the outside pockets for easy access. 
  • Create diaper kits for easy diaper changes. Pack a diaper, a few wipes and a change of clothes for Baby (in case of a blowout) in a large ziplock bag. Take your diaper kit with you to the bathroom instead of the entire diaper bag. 
  • Wear comfortable layers during a flight or road trip. Bring a large infinity scarf or nursing cover to nurse baby discreetly on the plane. 
  • Feed Baby during take-off and landing to help equalize their ears.

Safe travels!
