Flying With Babies

Travelling with a baby can be daunting, but it really doesn’t have to be as scary as you think!

Babies under 6 months
This can be the easiest age to travel with, they (generally) don’t move so don’t need quite so much entertainment.

Our top tips for under 6m:

  • Feed on take-off & landing, the sucking can help little one’s ears
  • Book a bassinet – if travelling long haul or your carrier accommodates ensure you book a cot/bassinet this will free up your arms
  • Take a change of clothes for baby AND you, we learnt this the hard way with our son who was sick all over himself and me! I had a change of clothes for him, but nothing for me.
  • Use a baby carrier/sling – there are some fantastic slings on the market, but using a sling will make getting on and off the plane so much easier 
  • Take your car seat – this is a benefit if you are planning on being in a car or taxi when away as it will be the safest travelling option for your baby. Many airlines will allow you to take your car seat for use on the plane (please note you will need to purchase a seat for the child), this can mean your little one can sleep in a seat they are more used to.
  • Take a pushchair to the gate – most airlines will allow you to take your pushchair to the gate, which means your little one can stay in the pram until you arrive at the plane. Just remember, however, you won't get it the other side until you collect your luggage
  • Pre-order your baby formula for the airport – you can take enough baby milk for your little one through security, but most airports also offer the opportunity to order, and the milk can be collected after you clear security (check with the airport)
  • Try and keep babies’ routine – this can be a toughy, but trying to stick to little one’s routine, to allow them to sleep and eat as they would if they weren’t on a plane
  • Finally….Relax – easier said than done, we all feel dread at the thought of a little one screaming through a flight, however they can pick up on our stresses, so as best you can try and keep calm
