Do you remember the days before you were a parent and you got on a plane that had a toddler on it? As cute as the child may have been, the louder or more active they became, the more you found yourself counting down the minutes until you would be able to get off of the flight. Now you are the parent and you notice the eyes that are semi-glaring at you as soon as you enter onto the plane with your own little one in tow.
If you would like some tips on how to fly with your toddler so that the flight can be as pleasant as possible for everyone involved, we’ve enclosed five of our top tips below:
Schedule the flight during their nap time. If you have a child who sticks to a pretty strict day schedule, you might want to consider taking a flight during their naptime. Sure, they may be a bit irritable on the way to the airport, but that’s better than having them scream the entire time while you’re on the plane. If their body is used to resting at a certain time, if they are comfortably seated, there’s a pretty good chance that they will still fall asleep (yes even on a plane).
Take advantage of the pre-boarding option. One benefit to getting to your gate at least 45 minutes before your flight leaves is that all airlines have a time when seniors and individuals with young children are able to pre-board. This gives you time to get situated without feeling like you need to rush due to all of the people who are waiting for you to take your seat.
Bring some toys. As adults, we can sometimes find ourselves feeling restless on flights and so it’s completely understandable why a child would be. That’s why it a good idea to pack a few toys and even a DVD player along so that they can watch an animated movie throughout the duration of the plane ride.
