Welcome To Flying With A Baby- Your Ultimate Guide To Family Travel

ultimate guide flying with a baby

Carrie Bradley

Hello, I’m Carrie,  and I cover all aspects of flying with children and provide tips, reviews and inspiration for family holidays.

I have over 12 years flying experience as a long-haul flight attendant. Since becoming  Mum to two little girls (now aged two and five), we’ve also flown 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. I hope my travelling experiences, knowledge and research make your travelling experience and holidays worry-free and easier too.  

If you are researching your next family holiday, do have a look at our holiday tips and holiday inspiration too!
