Welcome To Flying With A Baby
A family travel blog full of practical holiday & travel tips, family friendly hotels, airline reviews, holiday inspiration and travel product reviews.
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 flights 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 travel tips (especially flying with a baby advice) inspiration and practical information about family-friendly destinations, attractions and days out too! If you have older kids and teens, I also include holiday information and activities that they will enjoy too.
