Ultimate Resource Guide To Flying With A Toddler

Although flying with a baby has it's own challenges, flying with a toddler is a whole different ball game. Once little ones start crawling and walking, they need a little more to keep them occupied during a flight. This resource guide has plenty of tips and information to help you through this stage!

Make sure your toddler-friendly carry-on is stocked with all the essentials, including diapers/nappies, snacks and entertainment options to keep your little one entertained and smiling during the check-in process.

Patience is key as you navigate through security checks, so bring along some distractions like favorite snacks and toys to keep everyone happy. Once you’ve conquered check-in and boarding, next up is the flight!

As you settle into your seat, our guide helps prepare a comfortable flight for both parents and passengers alike.

A well-prepared carry-on is a key tip – filled with an array of snacks to keep hunger at bay and distractions like small toys to prevent any mid-flight meltdowns. Need a diaper/nappy change? No problem! Your trusty diaper bag, loaded with extra diapers, makes those inflight pit stops a breeze.

Create a cozy nap space for your little one with a small blanket or a bassinet and their go-to stuffed animal.

You might want earplugs to help you sleep but toddlers don’t really need them – chewing and swallowing helps with air pressure changes for little ones.

With this comprehensive guide, flying with a toddler becomes an adventure rather than a challenge, ensuring a smooth journey for parents, passengers, and, of course, those adorable toddlers in tow.
