  1. Wonderful tips. We travelled a lot with our oldest when he was a baby and you are totally on top of it. I’ll be traveling alone with my two young boys for a couple of weeks and am really excited!

      Thank you for the compliment! All the best to you when you travel with your two young boys! That’s a whole other ball game but I get why you’re excited. I think if another person was reading that we are “excited” to travel with young children, they would think that we we were out of our minds. haha

    I have so much respect for people who travel with their kids! It’s such a difficult thing, but so rewarding for everyone involved! Can’t wait to have my own little ones and put some of these tips to use!

      Thank you for that! Luckily, everyone that we encountered on the plane was so nice to us and our boy, so it was rewarding.

    It is amazing how much thought goes into leaving the house once you have kids. There is seriously a checklist you have to go through, lol. This is a great post. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Great info here! Momma of 2, one 4 and on 6 months. The change of clothes for mama is SO important, too! I think I need to fly Sing Air now…sounds like heaven! I’m an American living in Germany so I feel you 100%

      Wow, traveling with two kids is another ball game. I saw a lady carrying her crying infant and pushing a toddler in the stroller while going through security. I just wanted to give her a hug and tell her that she was doing great. Yeah, Singapore Airlines was amazeballs. Singapore was too!

  5. All good tips, my parents live 2000 miles away from us so both my kids have been frequent travelers from 10 weeks old and on. One thing my kids loved to play with when they were babies: the magazines in the back of the seat and ask for a seat belt extender. One son quietly shredded every page of the magazine but bothered no one, and my other son kept buckling the seat belt extender into itself for a good 45 mins!

  6. Traveling with a baby can be SO hard! I totally agree on trying foods before the plane, we did that with oatmeal cookies and our son decided they were not for him. Great advice!!

  7. We don’t have a baby yet but as a photographer that travels often, the thought of all this makes me nervous when we think about starting a family. Thank you for the helpful hints!

      Travelling with all that expensive and bulky photography equipment would make me nervous! haha. I guess once you actually do it, it doesn’t seem as scary afterwards.

    Oh my gosh, I still don’t know how you do it! When I have a baby, I don’t plan on traveling at all — I think I’d be too stressed! This list of tips is awesome, though — such great information!! Thank you so much for sharing!

    • Chandra

      Thanks for stopping by. With my family spread out across the globe, I didn’t really have a choice, I had to travel. You always find a way to get it done. 🙂

  9. Gosh, it seems like traveling with a baby is hard work! As a business traveler I will have to be more aware next time instead of getting annoyed at the crying little guy behind me!

  10. My babies are almost 11 and 17, but you have shared some great tips! I assure you, travelling with kids of any age always requires planning ahead 🙂 Great site! #fdflinkparty

      Thanks Denise! I thought I would be out of the woods by the time my baby will be 10 at least. I guess not. haha. Thanks for the compliments!

  11. Thanks so much for posting to the #fandayfriday link party! Hope you got some great traffic from the party this week hope to see you again next week!
