  • ok in an airport put your child safety first....with a child that age u can use a snuggly...it is wonderfull then use a back pack to carry your things in...buy a few new toys and dont let them see them till the flight.....pack lots and lots of little snacks....with your childs age i would suggest the gerber melt away finger food....and pack the baby food and formula....for layovers....and bring lots extra jsut in case u get stranded...bring the car seat and check it as luggage....and keep your child in the snuggly on you in the plane..during decent and take off the will ask you to take it off and hold the baby...but u only have to unstrap it not take the baby out....make a few bottles of HOT water...so when u go to use it later it will be cooled off the the right temp..CONT..

  • CONT....also pack a premade bottle...and extra formula...try to get one of those container that u can pre portion the formula in....i learned from experience when the baby is crying on a plane it is hard to fumble witht he baby the bottle and hold the can and scoop out the formula....as for the back pack u would carry put the diaper bag in the bottom....with everything u need in it....touys in the pockets....and bottles..in the mesh holders on the sides....and on top place your purse with your tickets and everything....it is much easier to carry one bag with the others in it then to have 2 or three to fumble with while tending for a baby.

  • I used to travel with empty bottles and pre measured formula in separate containers. Then after I got through security I bought bottles of water and mixed them together as I needed them. Are you nursing? That would be best. It's good if you can get them to suck during takeoff and landing. Good luck!!
