Flying with a toddler can be quite a tricky affair, but if you are prepared and have all your ducks in a row, it can also be as calm and collected as a walk in the park. If you are a parent who doesn't want to leave flying with a toddler to chance, then you must read on. We recently took to the skies for the December holidays and so Travelstart (Who have some Cheap flights to Cape Town) asked me to share a few tips of flying with a toddler.
"Pack Lots of Wet Wipes. You are guaranteed to have messes and spills"
Thankfully, there are lots of things you can do to help make your flight more comfortable, for both you and your toddler. Here are my best tips for parents:
#1: Always Get To The Airport Early If you're not organised and don't have plenty of time up your sleeve, it's a sure way to get yourself stressed out before the journey has even begun. When your journey starts out stressy, it tends to stay that way for the whole trip.
#2: Have An Activity Bag Ready To Go These are a godsend. Before you travel, pack a small backpack full of activities ready to go.
#3: Make Sure You Pack Plenty Of Snacks A hungry toddler is a cranky toddler. Parents of toddlers will know they tend to be fussy eaters too. Make sure you have plenty of snacks on board that your toddler will love.
#4: Pack Lots of Wet Wipes. You are guaranteed to have messes and spills.
#5: Consider The Timing Of Your Flights. This is important. You know the time of day when your toddler will be happy and content and the times when she will most likely be cranky.
And just one final tip, or at least a comforting thought, no matter how bad the flight is, no matter how terrible your children behave or how long your baby may cry, sooner or later, the plane will land, you will exit, and hopefully never see any of those people again!
