Tripps Travel Network understands that flying with your baby might not be as hard as it sounds. If you plan ahead and are prepared, flying with your baby can be a smooth experience that will allow your familyf to travel and have a great time together.

One suggestion is to plan your flight during your baby’s sleep time.  Red eye, midnight flights might be just the way to go when traveling with a baby. If those hours of the flight are during your baby’s regular sleeping time there is a good chance that you will have a quiet, restful, and sleepy flight.

Tripps Travel Network knows that you need to check with your airline’s recommendations and requirements regarding flying with infants.  Some might require purchasing a seat, usually at a reduced rate, while others may not.  It is usually recommended that babies under 40 pounds have car seats. This is however a recommendation and for most airlines, babies can fly free in an adults lap. Tripps Travel Network suggests that if you go for this option bring with you a sling or other soft carrier to help support your baby and to free up your hands during the flight.

If you are breastfeeding your baby find out what the airline’s policies are.  Send an email to the customer service department to inquire.  Consider bringing pumped milk in a bottle to prevent any unforeseen issues and to make it comfortable for everyone.
