From fussy babies to tantrum-throwing toddlers, the smaller people sometimes have a tough time coping on flights- no matter the duration. If your summer travel includes flying with little ones, here are some tips to help them (parents and passengers too!) cope.
You just took your seat for a 6-hour flight and can’t help but notice you are surrounded by very young children. Visions of crying, seat kicking, and motion sickness flash before you. Here are some options for the weary traveler.
You’ve got this. Staying calm might be tricky, but it’s key when your child reaches ear-piercing shrieks you never knew they were capable of. Being prepared will also leave you feeling more confident and in control.
Babies, small children, and teens can have ear issues. Bottles, pacifiers, and nursing can ease symptoms in babies. Chewing gum for older children can be helpful.
Toddlers and up:
Happy travels everyone!
