Baby On Board

Aug 18, 2007
At the end of the day, parents get their joy and happiness from kids. And because they love their kids so much, they could only love them so much. Parents have invested a lot in their children just to see them grow up and have a good life of their own in the future.

Yes, being a parent brings a lot of responsibilities. For instance, traveling with children can cause ruckus especially if the children we are talking about are still toddlers. They can be very moody and cranky. So, if you are a parent and you wish to enjoy the sights and sounds of other countries with your child, then read on and find out how to handle them.

1. Check that your airline allows you to pre-book a baby bassinet before the day of travel, because if not, seatbelts in planes don't properly restrain kids. If this happens, bring their car-seats on board the plane instead.

2. Before the flight take off, make milk or make them drink milk because there will be pressure in their ears. Little kids can't exactly do what adults can.

3. It is best to book a flight that is in line with their bed time. They will be more comfortable then and won't even notice what's going on around them.

4. Always hold their hands. Dress them in family-code color shirts or outfits. This will make them easier to find in crowded places like airports.

5. Bring light snacks for them to munch on in case it is a long flight. Put them in a little backpack that your kids can carry for easy access.

6. Also, bring toys for forms of entertainment. A new book, coloring books, doodle pads, crossword, crayons, paper, markers, pencils, stuffed animals, little cars, toy robots, and even laptops to watch movies can keep them entertained. Just bring something new and inexpensive, in case they will be lost.

7. You could also try to sing to them. Just be creative.

8. Bring therapy or just uber-soft pillows to make them feel comfortable, especially when they fall asleep during the flight.

9. A diaper bag with all the necessary baby stuff is also necessary. Pack their powdered milk in little bottles. Bring enough diapers, extra clothes, baby wipes and face towels.

10. First-aid kit is important. Pack in colorful band-aids, children's chewable vitamins and medicine, diaper-rash cream, mosquito and insect repellent lotions and lots of tissues. These will help in case they throw up.
