Traveling on your own or with your spouse can be stressful. But bringing your kids along is not just stressful but can be disastrous if you are not prepared. The thought of keeping them in check for hours in an airplane and carrying all those luggage through the airport can be daunting. However, there are some travel tips that you can take note of that will make air travel easier for the whole family.
Before booking your tickets, do your research and find airlines that offer family friendly regulations. Like for instance those that offer priority boarding for families and offer child-friendly amenities. Pack a carry-on that contains everything that your child needs to make it through the flight. If you have a baby with you, make sure you have enough milk, diapers, wipes, and baby clothes. Also pack snacks that your kids like. Keep older kids preoccupied with gadgets such as laptops, tablets, MP3 players, handheld video games, and portable DVD players. Keep your babies awake during take off and landing so as to avoid earaches. Last but not the least, if your kids are vulnerable to motion sickness, select seats above the wings for maximum stability. You can likewise let them take medicines that your doctor have deemed safe to consume.
