Traveling with Jett: Tips when traveling with a baby

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

The night before

Have a game plane!!!

Make sure you securely pack all your babies’ essentials: diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, food, etc… Get as much as rest as possible, traveling with a baby can be very exhausting.

If you’re flying with southwest and you plan to sit your child in your lap prepare to bring some documentation proving that your child is younger than 2 years of age. Most of time anything with your baby’s name and birth date suffices such as a Birth certificate, shot records, SSI. Other airlines don’t require such documentation.

Great News is that Lap babies (younger than age 2) fly free on domestic flights.

Day of Flight

Arrive at the airport earlier than you would when traveling alone, enough time to feed your little one and a diaper change.

Breast feeding mamas prepare to have any milk you bring on board inspected at TSA. The process is a nuisance, but not very timely.

If you are planning to bring a stroller prepare to break that down, along with your car seat.
To avoid this some people, choose to check their stroller and car seat. In my experience, I would rather check at the gate then chance them losing any of those items.

While waiting to board try to tire your baby out. A sleepy baby, is a good baby.

Pack toys and nick-necks to keep your baby occupied, iPad, music ,food, juice etc...

Try to get an aisle seat so you can move about the cabin freely when needed. Because you might have fussy baby, and walking might induce sleepiness.

You made it!

3 hours later you made it and it’s time to deboard.

15 minutes before you land make sure to gather all of your belongs you might’ve taken out during the flight.

Don’t rush!

Let all of the people eager to deboard get off the plane first. To give yourself enough time.

When deboarding Don’t forget to get your car seat and stroller.
