Best tips to remember when flying with toddlers

It can be difficult to go through the airport when you do not have a stroller but this does not mean you should opt for the regular-size option. Choose one that is smaller and you will simply go through airport security faster.

Airplane seating can be limited, cramped, and you need to deal with busy waiting areas. This means flying is not a great experience for toddlers. Little children lack the patience you have when it comes to airport security and sitting in the same place for hours, especially when they need to do it quietly.

Since you can have the best Indigo flight booking experience and still have a loose trip with your toddler, here are some great tips to help you make the airplane stay a lot better.

Book early departures
This is useful since you have a higher chance of avoiding landing and takeoff delays. Also, such flights tend to be less crowded. People are usually tired and even kids want to just take a nap. In addition, it is a very good idea to avoid those flights with late-night connections and long layovers.

Avoid toddler-free travel upgrades
This is something that might seem weird but the truth is you will get much more support and empathy when you travel with your toddler in economy class. If you use your travel upgrades to receive first class seats, you will be disappointed to see that passengers there will be even more bothered than others if the child is noisy.

Discuss the trip with your kids before it happens
You want to do this in order to let your child know exactly what to expect. A big problem is fear of the unknown and you can remove it since you would simply tell your kid what will happen. As long as the child is old enough to understand what you say, it is easy to discuss several things. Just make sure you talk about the whole experience, including baggage check-in and safety.

Carefully choose clothes
Drastically changing temperatures can be very bad for your toddler. This is why you should always dress kids in layers. Try to avoid things that stop children from quickly going to the bathroom, like zippers or buttons. Do the same for shoes as slip-ons are simply better. All of these can help you to get rid of airport screening faster.

Have surprises for toddlers with you
Whenever you fly with a toddler, something new to play with can be very useful. Make sure it is wrapped since this has two advantages:

  • Kids always love unwrapping things
  • New toys grab much more attention than old toys

Use smaller strollers
It can be difficult to go through the airport when you do not have a stroller but this does not mean you should opt for the regular-size option. Choose one that is smaller and you will simply go through airport security faster. You might even consider kid harnesses.

Pack what you need
It is very important to pack essentials and this does include food. There is a high possibility toddlers will not like what is served and there are not many comfort items available. However, this does not mean you should pack everything that comes to mind. Everything you take with you on the plane needs to be carried, together with your children. So, just take the essentials.
