9 tips for flying with children

Be overly prepared

Make your list, pack your bags, and check your supplies … twice.

Traveling with your family on an airline flight is never the time to be under prepared. Pack all of the essentials and then recheck your supplies to be sure that everything is ready for the trip. Extra bottles, pacifiers, nipples, wipes, diapers, and outfits will ensure that all of the basics are covered. Taking extra clothes for you and your child may sound strange, but if he or she is young enough, a blown out diaper could make you miserable until you reach your destination. Snacks, toys, and books will also help keep the kids happy.
