Things that helps when flying with infants and kids

Gatechecking a stroller makes flying with kids easier.

Gatechecking a stroller makes flying with kids easier.

1. Gate check a stroller. Most companies allow you to gate check a stroller, depending on their regulations. This was a must for me when I traveled by myself with toddlers. I used a Mountain Buggy (Urban Jungle) and I cannot tell you enough how much I love this stroller. It works wonders when getting to my destination as well. I often travel to Europe, and I need something sturdy that can handle anything from beach strolling to forest hiking. I also used a smaller stroller from Gracco, which was also great when the kids where smaller.


2. Even though I had gate checked a stroller, I brought a Baby Bjorn carrier on board. It helped me to put my son to sleep in no-time, and it saved my back during the flight.

3. A good diaper bag, with lots of smart solutions in it. I have a crush on Skip Hops bigger version and I have used them a lot during flights.

4. Anti-bacterial wipes. Do not think twice, just go get them.

5. Spill free cups. How I wish I had brought one of these that flight when my kid poured all the juice over me…

About Caroline

I am a proud mother of two toddlers, living in Texas. I have been a globetrotter since childhood, and decided to continue with that despite all the hassle that comes with traveling with small kids. My opinion is that every kid benefits from exploring new cultures and seeing different places. So far, my passport has stamps from India, Russia, Ukraine, Israel, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, England, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, France and Greece. When flying is not an option, me and my family take the car out for a road trip, exploring the adventurous USA.
