Whether it’s a trip to the inlaws for the Holidays, a bit of Pre-Christmas business travel, or the long haul back home, the travel season is upon us, and that means the holiday-themed hassle of bringing little ones on long plane rides.
Whether you’re a flying fan or dread every one of those perfectly pedicured steps your Monolo’s take toward boarding, it’s a fairly safe bet that your little one isn’t going to have the best time, especially if this is their very first ariel outing.
With Interrupted sleeping patterns, seldom play breaks and troubling turbulence, for a brand new baby, taking a trip can be a less than elevated experience.
If you want to keep your fellow passengers as friendly as those baby blue skies, a little planning now can help ensure that both you and your baby stay relaxed and entertained throughout the flight.

What to Pack in your Carry on when you’re traveling with Baby this Holiday Season
For the Lady: While your little’s needs might be your number one priority as you’re packing, don’t forget to include a few details just for yourself. Grab a few healthy snacks like mixed tree nuts or dried fruit to pop into your bag so you have a healthy alternative to the onboard food and pack your favorite book and a charger for your phone in case your flight gets delayed due to weather. Pack a light sweater in your bag as well as a few essentials like chapstick, sunscreen, and a small notebook to make your journey a lot more enjoyable as you and your little make your merry way to your destination this holiday season.
For the Little: From teething troubles to passport problems, while it’s impossible to anticipate every need your infant might have, packing a few entertainment and health-related essentials for easy access in your carry on will ensure that you and your baby are prepared to fly.
