When flying with A child.

Where do you seat? All the way on the back Im the middle or in the front. I will be traveling with my daughter who is gonna be 9 months soon, and I was just wondering which is the best sitting when you travel with your little one(s)?

  • I sat all the way in the back when my daughter was a baby. It made it easier to go to the bathroom for me without having to carry her all over the plane. I was just right there, within spitting distance of the bathroom door. :-) It wasn't as loud back there either.

  • I like to sit in the back with a baby, that way we can be loaded on first and be the last to get off the plane. That way if the baby is fussy during the flight you don't glared at by all of the people behind you that are faster to leave. :D

  • I would say closest to the front where you can get on and off quickly. I have sat all over the plane with my son, once you're seated it doesn't make much of a difference.

  • i dont think it makes much of a difference either. but the bathroom idea seems logical. but i didnt really need it though.

  • I seat closest to the front as well. We travel recently and it was great that they let people traveling with small kids go in first people letting everyone else go.

  • Well I think being close to the bathroom is a good Idea but, Im afraid that she will be so fussy by the time that we get there that being all the way on the back will be a disadvantage. You know how people like to take their time.

  • They don't like it but I try and get the bulkhead seats - more leg room! If not I always get aisle seats so I can get up and walk around with my baby
