We’re all worried about how our little one will react when forced to sit on a plain for a while. It can be a very scary experience for a baby. They don’t know why they’re up so high, and don’t know if it’s safe to be so. The point is, children don’t like change of any kind, that includes travel. There are ways we can make it more comfortable for them. When we use these tools, we’ll have a silent baby most of the way.
First of all, you can’t stop your child’s ears from popping. It’s extremely dangerous to give an infant gum. They can choke on it, and the medical attention received while on the plane is almost never quality. You need to get the idea of getting rid of the ear popping out of your head. Once you guys are in the air, the ear popping won’t be an issue, and the baby will stop crying.
While up in the air, you should be able to pull out some toys from your carry on bag. These should be small toys, and one’s that you know will keep your child’s attention. There’s always one toy your kid won’t be able to resist, so use that one. Reading a baby book while in the air is a great way to distract them, they’ll also love the attention. You might as well use this time to spend some quality time with your children, there’s not much else up there to do.
Sometimes, the crying gets out of control, and there’s nothing we can do about. It’s okay to let your kid cry on an airplane. People expect to hear at least one upset child. Chances are, they’ll just be thankful it’s not their kid screaming. That’s the attitude of most parents and people.
Bringing formula on the plane can be difficult, but obviously it’s aloud. They can’t stop you from bringing food to your baby, that’s illegal, and just plain wrong. Breast feeding might be more of a challenge, but they’re covers to help you keep your modesty. You can always go into the airplane bathroom, although, I’m not sure how comfortable that will be.
Don’t buy a plane ticket for your baby. He doesn’t need his own seat until he’s two. He can simply sit in your lap. It will be more comforting to him to be seated in your lap anyway. I know you want him to feel secure in this strange environment. Have twins? You hold one baby, while your husband, or an older child holds the other.
Traveling with infants doesn’t have to be hard. It’s all about using those special skills you’ve developed as a mommy over the years. You and your kid can both have a great flight, and a wonderful Thanksgiving. There’s plenty to be thankful for, especially a resting infant. Let’s make this a safe, and easy flight for you and your baby. Check out mydeebaby.com.
