View Full Version : Flying with a 1yr old!
We are heading off to VIC (we are in QLD) at the end of next week... we are flying and this will be the first time we have been on a plane with DD.
Can someone give me some tips on what to take with us... obviously, as she is 1, she wont be sleeping on the flight...
What will I need? Food... toys...? What if she poops? :hair: LOL
Gosh, this shall be interesting!
Can't imagine the flight is terribly long. We have just returned from Singapore, 5 1/2 hours with our 2 terrors.
Check in early and ask for bulkhead seating, more leg room and near toilets.
Take fav drink cup, toy, book on to plane.
Take a lolly or bottle or BF for the way up and down to help with ears equalising.
Designated toilets on the plane have change tables, they are cramped but work OK. I managed to change DS with #2 both on the way to Sing and on the way back, my luck, lol.
Let the airline know well in advance that you are carrying an infant and ask for a meal to be provided, kids meal unless she will eat jars of baby food.
That's all i can think of for now.
Only 4 days ago I flew with DS who is 22 months - I took books, snacks and little toy cars. He was really good - we had 2 legs from Albury to Melbourne, then Melb to Burnie/Devonport.
I'm sure your DD will be fine :thumbsup:
When you check in, ask to be seated next to a spare seat (Qantas and Virgin are both happy to do this), it will give you more room/space to spread out and occupy Elsha. Take some "new" toys (or ones she hasn't seen for a while and I also recommend feeding while you take off and land, it will help with her ears
:thumbsup: Have fun :)
