Nothing drives fear into the heart of this experienced traveller like the thought of flying with a kid. We did it successfully back in September, on our trip to NYC, but that was a pretty short flight. What if we want to go a bit further?
A friend and her 7-month old babe are flying to San Francisco this week, and I’ve been thinking about them. That’s a 5 hour flight from Toronto (longer if you do a layover). Yikes! In order to try and help her out, I compiled a list of blog articles I’ve read about travelling with babies:
Ten Tips for Traveling with a Baby from Cup of Jo
Tips for Flying with a Baby from Hannah of akhmatova
Traveling with a Toddler from You + Me
Up, Up and Away from Coos and Ahhs
A bajillion handy articles from the Canadian site, Have Baby will Travel
And in this weekend’s NY Times, there’s a great article about flying with children.
Have you flown with your little ones? How did it go? Do you have any more tips?
