Here at Aquaroo, we know that flying with a baby can be a daunting experience, but often necessary to get to those perfect vacation destinations. With the right essentials however, and a little patience, flying with infants can be an stress-free and comfortable journey for both you and your baby. Here's what we recommend for some of the top flying essentials for babies.
Diapers and wipes: Diapers and wipes are a must-have for any flight with a baby. Make sure you bring enough diapers to last the duration of the flight, plus a few extras in case of any delays or emergencies. Wipes are also essential for keeping your baby clean and comfortable during the flight.
Snacks and formula: Bringing snacks and formula is important, especially for long flights. Formula should be packed in a separate container to make it easy for security to check. It's also a good idea to bring extra bottles and pacifiers to help your baby cope with the pressure changes during takeoff and landing. Plenty of snacks will help keep your child entertained no matter the duration of the flight - and thankfully, you will have wipes on hand for any unforeseen messes!
Entertainment: In between snacks, offering your child a book or toy can help make time fly (no pun intended) and are essential for keeping your baby entertained during the flight. Choose lightweight toys that are easy to pack and won't take up too much space in your carry-on bag. You can also download games or shows onto a tablet for older children. We love the $1 bins at our local stores so there's no stress if things get damaged or lost.
Change of clothes: A change of clothes for both you and your baby is a must-have for any flight. Accidents can happen, and having a fresh change of clothes can make all the difference in keeping your baby comfortable during the flight as well taking the pressure off of you! Our expert tip, don't wear white!
Baby headphones: If you plan on using a tablet or smartphone for entertainment, it's a good idea to invest in baby headphones. These are designed specifically for babies and are much smaller and more comfortable than regular headphones. A little comfort for your infant can go a long way for you!
Traveling with a baby can be challenging, but with the right essentials, it can be a comfortable and stress-free experience. Of course, don't forget your Aquaroo and safe travels!
