The above is only a small list of what you have to take with you on a holiday with the baby.
Flying with baby
If you are flying with a baby younger than 2 years, the baby will travel for free and no seat will be reserved for the little one. So you have to keep your baby with you. Make sure your baby has comfortable and airy clothing. In addition, it is good to work with layers of clothing so that you can easily adjust to the changing temperatures.
Tip: Most airlines have cribs on board where you can place the baby. The cradle is directly in front of your chair and is attached to the wall. Ask for it at check-in for your flight.
Tip for the plane: Make sure your baby has enough to drink. This can help against the pain in the ears. So take extra bottle food or water with you. Please note that you can only take 100 ml of liquid with the security checks at the airport. You can always get bottled water on board or in the customs area.
Baby food may often be in a larger volume. In addition, make sure that you bring diapers, drinking cups, wipes, food (baby food, milk powder), spit cloth, bib, teat, washcloth, spoon and a sleeping bag in the hand luggage!
Flight holiday with baby
Babies up to 2 years are usually allowed to go on the plane for free. Always check the conditions of the relevant airline company so that you know exactly what to expect.
Are you flying intercontinental? Then you have to deal with different time zones. A good rhythm is very important for babies. Therefore adjust the rhythm immediately upon arrival. You do not have to do this before. Usually babies need about 3 days to adapt to a different time zone.
