Air Travel With Kids Made Easier
It is important that your child is able to get up and stretch their legs occasionally. Your child will be very restless if they are sitting in the same spot for too long. Even if it is to go the bathroom, allow them to get up about every 30 minutes. You should also get up with them!
If your plane ride is going to be a long one, it is important that your child’s seat goes back and that they have enough room to sleep. Your child is going to become miserable if they are tired and are unable to sleep. Check with the airline beforehand to make sure the seats can be pushed back and are big enough for a nap.
For older children, you may want to bring an iPod or other electronic device that plays music. Many older children and teenagers are most entertained when they have music to listen to. Who knows, they may even close their eyes while listening to music and even take a siesta!
As mentioned at this article’s beginning, bringing children with you on a plane can be a challenge. But, if you use the advice this article has provided you with, you will find the trip to go much more smoothly and perhaps even fun!
