|In airplane: Families
traveling with babies are often seated in the front row.
Thereīs more room to move and small babies can sleep in special baby
bassinets that are attached to the wall before the seats.
Remember to request a bassinet before flight.
and small children under 2 years donīt have seats of their own in the
airplane so theyīll have small safety belts that
are attached to their parentsī seat belts during
takeoff and landing. If your baby is on a bottle or breastfeeding give
them the bottle or the breast for takeoff and landing. It may help
balance the air pressure in baby's ears, but usually babies donīt seem
to mind takeoffs or landings. Lucky babies!
Itīs not fun to change diapers at airplane
but itīs possible. If itīs not necessary to
use running water you can change diapers on your lap instead of going
to the toilet - itīll be more comfortable.
What to take in the plane with you:
Dress the baby in warm and comfortable clothes that are easy to take
off if it becomes too warm. Remember to take diapers, diaper changing
matt, warm socks, clothes to change if necessary and maybe some toys
that will calm your baby down. Donīt take too much, thoug. Warm covers
and pillows are usually found in the airplane.
a nice flight with your baby!
