You have to be ready for a large number of issues when you are traveling with a toodler. The toddler still may be interested in the motion and sounds that are coming from a tablet or a gaming system. This is why you are going to see more parents out there turning to electronics. You have to look for ways to silent these devices, and the truth is that a shiny, old fashioned magazine is a better option to read on an airplane anyway.
- Try to plan ahead for anything that you might encounter along the way from home to boarding your flight. See if you a friend or family member can accompany and assist you through the check in process.
- If possible check in online so that you only need to check your baggage at the airport. See if you can keep your pram or stroller have it loaded separately once you reach your flight.
- By staying close to your terminal you might have the opportunity to board first when traveling with children. Remember to bring items to distract your child during take off and the flight.
“If you have never boarded a plane with a baby or a small child, air travel presents a whole new set of challenges.”
