1. Pack several small new toys and books that your child hasn’t seen before.
Children like new things, it catches their attention for a period of time if they haven't seen that before. So, this would be the best way to distract them. The new trend for travel books at this age are ones with lift-the-flaps or touch-and-feel textures. You may consider swapping toys with your friends so your child has something new and exciting without buying so much toys.
2. Bring your child’s favorite low-mess snacks.
The pureed foods sold in a tube are great for travel – older babies and toddler can suck them right out of the tube, saving you from the trouble of messing with a spoon.
3. You simply can’t protect a baby, especially a mobile one, from germs and mess while traveling
Bring an organic no-rinse cleanser, it helps you a lot throughout the journey. You can use it to clean your baby's face, body and even private part! It save you from the mess of feeding and changing diaper. You can even use it to wipe down your tray table and arm rests with a no-rinse cleanser.
And we recommend this,
It's organic, safe and gentle for you and your baby!
4. Technology helps.
Entertaining your kid with a movie or a new app to get you through a long flight. And do not forget to bring entertainment to yourself too! You could be lucky enough that your baby/toddler sleeps on your lap/chest for the entire flight. Instead of taking the risk by waking up your gift of slumber, just bring yourself some reading materials or download some new and interesting apps to save you from boredom.
5. Call the airline before your trip to make sure they have your lap-child registered for the flight or check-in at the ticket counter.
Before you go through security, your infant will need her own boarding pass or a special note on your boarding pass. Some plane seats are off-limits for a lap child because they don’t have an extra oxygen mask, so it is important to check with the airline before you fly.
6. Dress your baby for quick and easy diaper changes
Favorite combo is a onesie with leggings, which gives you quick access to the diaper without removing socks, shoes, pants.
7. Wear your baby
Using a carrier is the best choice which means that your baby can happily continue napping as you get on and off planes and rush to the next gate.
8. And lastly, enjoy your journey and have fun!
