Tips / Travel

Oh baby! Travel with an infant can be a challenge, regardless of the length of your flight. If this is your first time traveling with your little one, follow our tips for a stress-free flight.


Talk to Your Doctor

First and foremost, make sure you and your baby are cleared to fly by a doctor. They might be able to provide some advice for the flight or any issues that may occur.


Check with the Airline

Before booking your flight, check the airline’s policies on traveling with an infant. There may be special rules and regulations you aren’t familiar with, so do your research before you book. You can also call after booking and request a bassinet. If possible, try to get an aisle seat toward the front of the plane for easy access to the aisle and bathroom. Take advantage of early boarding at the gate.


Be Prepared

Make sure you have all of the proper documentation for your infant. Arrive to the airport early, as you may not be used to the extra items you’ll be carrying with you. Pack extras of everything. Try to feed your baby and change their diaper before the flight. Depending on the time and duration of the flight, aim to time your baby’s regular nap or sleeping time with the flight.


Go with the Flow

You can’t predict what will happen on your first flight with your infant, so try your best to go with the flow and handle any problems with a sense of humor and optimistic outlook
