Flying with kids
Flying with kids may be daunting but it is easy. You just have to be well prepared for it. The good thing about airlines when traveling with kids is that babies under 2 years fly freely. You don’t need to pay except if you feel like buying a ticket for them. Here are some of the things you need to do on board to make your kids comfortable.
Your kids will need an international passport. If you plan to travel within the year, get the passport on time to prevent delay.
Book direct flight
Booking indirect flight in a bid to get cheap ones may not really work when you have kids with you. If you want a stress free trip, you have to consider this. When you traveled alone, you could book more than one connection of flight, no one cares. Right now, it is inappropriate if you don’t want the trip to be stressful for you and the kids.
Make sure that you have enough snacks handy that will be adequate to hold your kids till you reach your destination.
Breastfeeding infants on airplanes help to clear the Eustachian tubes during takeoff and landing. It is the best thing your baby can get.
Know your destination
Do a research about your destination to find out if breastfeeding is allowed in the public or you will have to find a private place to do it anytime the need arises.
Order their meals
Ordering their meals first will give them a nice treat and it will allow you to eat yours without disturbance when yours arrive.
