Top Tips for Successful Air Travel with Infants
You love travelling but you don’t want to appear like another unkempt parent who is in a mess in the airplane with her baby. Even if you are an experienced mom, you fear that your baby will make other passengers judge you. Don’t worry! Your adventures needn’t take a break just because your infant could be fussy with his activities. We are here to help you and your baby become travel-ready.
People today prefer to travel light; no extras. But, amidst this, don’t risk falling short of a baby’s necessities in your hand luggage – baby food, bib, diapers, changing pad, sanitising wipes, pacifier and toys. Make sure that you are carrying toys that are not noisy or too bright and disturb others’ peace.
You can shop for some cute and handy baby stuff at Wobbly Walk – your online store. With Wobbly Walk, you can prepare ahead of time for a pleasant travel adventure with your infant.
#Dress up right
Newborns get hungry quite often and carrying breastmilk on a plane is a little difficult. Even if you managed to refrigerate and carry a bottle of milk in the plane, some airlines do not heat it. So, you would rather choose to nurse your toddler yourself during the flight. Here it becomes very important to have worn the proper attire which allows easy access to your baby. But, then, you also want to make sure that your dress doesn’t give too much exposure to your fellow passengers.
Wobbly Walk brings for you nursing wears which are designed to let you nurse comfortably. They allow proper ventilation and eye contact with your baby while breastfeeding. Available in different designs, prints and colours, our nursing covers are made of premium quality, skin-friendly and lightweight fabrics. So, now, you can feed your baby in style. Add on a cardigan or a scarf and you get yourself a ‘super chic mom’ look.
#Nursing Pillow – a must carry on
Ask anyone for just one piece of advice for flying with a baby, and they will tell you to carry a nursing pillow along. It is difficult in a plane to feed the baby comfortably due to the cramped space. You would not want, for sure, to bump a fellow passenger. Nursing pillows perfectly fit between the armrests and hence become ‘a must carry on’.
Keeping in mind all of a mother’s needs, Wobbly Walk makes available nursing pillows with soft, siliconised fibre filling that offers better comfort. The pillows are so designed that keeps your baby’s head in the right position during feeding. They can later be used as supporting cushions to help your baby learn to sit up on his own.
Wobbly Walk also brings for you easy to use, protective, stylish slipcovers which ensure that your feeding pillow is protected against all sorts of accidental mess. As a boon, these covers have been made using super soft, durable cotton fabric.
#Be prepared for your baby’s ear pain
Take off and landing can be difficult for your baby too, just like it’s for you. If you are not prepared to protect their ears from the pressure changes, your toddler’s cry could shake the entire cabin during those few minutes. Sometimes this ear pain can also bother your baby for a longer period.
As doctors prescribe, you can breastfeed or bottle-feed him or let him suck on a pacifier during take-off and landing. Also, remember to wake them up during this time.
Prefer to disembark the airplane last so that you have some good time in hand to organise yourself. And, of course, don’t forget to notify the airline that you are travelling with an infant, while booking your ticket.
Everything else apart, all you need is to just relax and enjoy; the journey automatically will become less stressful for you as well as your toddler.
