    Default Travel with 11 Week Old

    In two weeks time I am travelling to the UK with my 11 week old DS and am looking for some travel tips from anyone who had flown with a young bub in the past.

    I am BF'ing so don't need to worry about formula etc, have my ergo for transporting him around the airport and will check in my stroller , will take panadol, nappies etc on plane as well as a few changes of clothes for him.

    Does anyone have any advice/tips?!

    We've flown many times with our daughter who is now 21 months. I'd have say it was much easier when she was younger. You will probably find at that age your baby stays on the same routine, just on a plane! The hostesses are usually really helpful with kids too so anything you need just ask them. Just make sure you pack enough nappies, nappy bags and changes of clothes for baby. We just did Aus to the UK and the poor bub near us projectiled ALOT. Feed baby on taxi/take off and landing and you should be fine. Good luck!

    Ask to be seated next to an empty seat if there is one, I found this to be better than the "bassinet" they offer. Qantas are very accommodating.

    Don't forget a change of clothes for yourself, a clean tee or pants for yourself rolled up into your carry on might be a godsend if there is a poo explosion or baby vomit iykwim.

    Sounds like your prepared but I second the suggestion of a change of clothes for you. First plane trip with my son I walked down the aisle & everyone was looking at me. I thought they were admiring my perfect son & my superior mothering abilities. Nup. He'd poo'd on me & I hadn't noticed.
    11 weeks will be a great age to travel with bub. Enjoy.


    TTC 10 years & finally got our miracle bub............finally!!!!

    Thanks for all the advice ladies. I hadn't thought about a change of clothes for me! And considering my little bundle is partial to the odd poo explosion and projectile vomit it is a great tip
