Travel with a baby

Hi!

We're due to travel abroad next week and I'm flapping about the flight!
Our little girl will be 4 months old and it's a 4 hour flight. Any tips or ticks for traveling with a baby?!

I flew 10 hours with my very energetic toddler recently.

More milk (if you bottle feed) than you think you need.
A sleeping bag to pop her in for nap time in your arms.
A couple of sensory toys.

Travelling with an immobile baby is an absolute piece of piss.

Just take a couple of changes of clothes for them and one for you too just in case of any poo explosions.

Feed on take off/landing if you can for ears.

Done.

Don’t take an extra bag as hand luggage, only pack what you need for the flight in one bag between you and the baby. A stroller that fits on as hand luggage is useful but not essential

Keep your pram till you board then plane its easier for you! Even though the check outnpffer to take it for you.
