Travelling With A Toddler

You can’t really depend on flight attendants to take care of your baby when you are travelling by plane. Travelling is a bit difficult to travel with toddlers as they are quite restless.
· It would be better to take the baby’s seat instead of taking them on your lap.
· Do take some boiled water with you.
· Keep few of the baby’s clothes with you in your hand bag.
· Nappy, Baby wipes, rash cream, bibs, lots of napkins and extra diapers etc. should be carried in your hand bag.
· Do carry some of your kid’s toys which they like. (of course, the ones which you can carry in the hand bags)
· Some story books so that you can distract the baby if they are restless.
· Carrying some stuff like crayons and color pencils is also a good idea as at this age kids are easily distracted with these things.
· Also do carry food and milk for your little one. (You can carry up to 1 litre of milk in small bottles of 200 ml or less if it is a long distance journey. If you plan to ask for milk on the flight, do request for milk in advance as it is refrigerated so that it comes t to normal temperature by the time you have to feed your baby.)
· Kids also feel the pressure during take-off and landing and feel all the more restless if you hold their ears tight. So try to give them something to suck or chew on while take-off and landing. (Bottle feeding them if they drink milk is an excellent option)
· Carry important medicines for fever, cough, cold etc.
· Carry warm clothes as you may need them during the flight.
· Also carry a hand sanitizer as it’s really important.
Hope this helps. Have a happy and safe journey.
