Carrie Bradley

Hello, I’m Carrie, and I hope you find this site useful? I have over 12 years flying experience as a long-haul flight attendant and have visited over 60 countries. Since becoming Mum to two little girls (now aged three and six), we’ve also travelled extensively as a family; my husband is Australian so that includes some ultra long-haul trips and holidays. Despite being very familiar with the aircraft & airport environment, plus helping thousands of parents fly with their children, the first time I flew as a passenger with my baby, I was nervous.  I was worried about her crying, disturbing other passengers and many other things. However, we have since covered many miles, with many different airlines. Now it’s excitement, not fear when we take even a 24-hour flight with our young children!

We aim to provide you with lots of inspiration and practical information about family-friendly destinations, attractions and days out too!

Where should I start?

One of the most popular questions I get asked are tips for flying with a baby or tips for flying with a toddler.  If this is you, this site has literally everything you need to know in one place.

There is also an active Facebook community for Flying With A Baby, where parents ask each other for advice for all things family travel related, so do pop over there for some friendly advice from parents all over the world. You can also find me on Instagram and Twitter @flyingwithbaby
