Some would argue that taking a baby or toddler on a long haul flight is either very brave or very stupid. However, we believe travelling and seeing new cultures is one of the best experiences for kids. So here are our top tips to help take the strain out of long haul flights.
Take as many toys and distractions as you can fit in a Trunki! Boredom is often the cause of travelling tantrums. However, do avoid games with small parts that could get lost, or toys that make a lot of noise. Also, try hiding some items and only bring them out when spirits start to lower. The surprise element should soon cheer them up!
Fresh activity or sticker books often have more appeal than old worn games and toys they’ve played with 100’s of times before.
Most airlines let under 2’s travel for free, but when booking, seriously consider how long you’re willing to have a child on your lap for. It makes eating, reading or even watching a film very tricky.
Take along some toothpaste, a toothbrush, baby wipes and a change of clothes for all, just in case anyone is ill. Also you’ll feel more positive if you feel clean!
Before booking find out just how child friendly your airline is. What entertainment do they provide, do they have an in-flight activity scheme for children of different ages, do they have children’s TV channels and games, do they provide children’s meals etc.
Make sure you and your child are as comfortable as possible. Many mums recommend putting their little ones into pyjamas to make it feel more like bedtime.
