3:00 AM, Pohsdorf, Germany. I have just survived my first trans-continent flight, solo with a 6-month-old baby boy, a total of 24 hours traveling time, 3 full diapers, and many lessons learned along the way.
TIPS FOR SURVIVING AIRPLANE TRAVEL WITH A BABY:
1. Bring a couple carry on toys to keep baby occupied.
Tie a ribbon around each so you can attach it to the stroller or bassinet. No rattles or noisy toys, though. The other passengers would appreciate it.2. The stroller can be your lifesaver.
But if you have a stopover and transit flight, make sure it’s clear that you get your stroller at the layover as well, and that the airport staff doesn’t send it straight to your destination. Have them give it to you when stepping off the plane (they will put another label tag on this) so that you are not stuck without it at immigrations and other checkpoints before baggage claim.[Click here to read the full article at SmartParenting.com.ph] (Photo by ssdg4773 via sxc.hu)
