Traveling ✈️

Has anyone traveled with a 1 year old on a plane? I’m taking my first trip to Texas to see my family and it will be my little ones first plane ride and I’m curious to know on your experience, what I should take or what to prepare for.

We’re traveling next week, it’s my daughter 3rd flight in the 5 months. Make sure to bring snacks and things to keep your little one entertained. And I’ve found that if you book travel during nap or sleeping times it’s great. On our first flight across the country she did great, coming back.... weelll we both cried. She had a meltdown and I couldn’t get her to stop. Now I just make sure to keep her entertained or do red eye flights. Our trip to Jamaica was sooooo long, but she slept every time so that was great. Good luck!! Also check Pinterest for ideas. That’s what I do.

Just do it! It’ll work out one way or another. We just moved interstate and hubby drove down while I flew with our 20 month old and 3.5 year old while 35 weeks pregnant. Wouldn’t do it for fun but if you have to you just do it 👍🏼

Traveled with our first born internationally since she was three months. Got harder as she got older. When she just turned two, on the flight from LA to Sydney, she kept trying to run past that curtain that separates the compartments, thinking that was the way off the plane. About to fly Atlanta to Sydney with both kids, oldest will be three and youngest will be six months. Think it'll be OK, except I'm flying back solo (husband needs to come back early), so it'll be me with two kids, Perth to Sydney to Dallas to Atlanta.

Bring another adult. 😂😂. Don’t be afraid to ask flight attendants for help. Good luck!

I took my 8 month old and 3 yr old. I nursed my 8 month old during takeoff so her ears wouldn’t pop. And I gave my 3 yr old headphones and my phone with a movie so it wouldn’t hurt his ears. They were good the whole way. And it was a 4+ hr flight.
