    3 weeks on a domestic flight and 9 weeks on an international flight to London. Slept most of the way. It's the easiest time to travel with them. My DS is now 3 and has done over 90 flights but it's a lot more difficult now as he doesn't want to sit still!

    First time domestic about 9 mths, Thailand at 14 mths. (& numerous other trips)

    We found it more difficult once she could walk and was aware that she was being restricted, but we have so far been fairly well prepared with entertainment for each trip

    What are some good things to bring on a plane with you and bub? I'm guessing a pram and porta-cot are just way too ridiculous to bring if you're going interstate to visit family yeah? or is a pram okay to bring.

    The age where they don't want to be restricted but also when activities don't occupy them for long (pretty much the toddler years!).

    We just went to Europe and took both a pram and portacot, so I don't think it's ridiculous to take either of those interstate . We received a lot of comments from people about how light we were travelling considering we are a family with two small children. We packed the portacot in our suitcase (it's a Phil & Teds travel cot; quite smaller than a lot of them on the market and fairly light). The pram went in the undercarriage, seperately.

    Onboard, we took baby supplies, some toys & snacks for the kids. We used a backpack, so that we could have our hands free while looking after the kids in the time between checking-in and boarding (youngest child went in the ergo).

    My DD was 3 weeks we took her from Melbourne to Qld and back.. She was a dream. We fed her as we were rising and descending and no problem.

    Four months, it was great! He had a boob and a sleep the entire flight. His last flight was at 16 months, he spent the way there playing with the touchscreen TV and slept the whole way back. I flew Qantas and found the staff really helpful.
