How To Make Flying With a Baby Less Stressful

By Adeniyi Ogunfowoke

If given the opportunity, quite a number of parents will not fly with their babies. This is because it can be very stressful, hectic, and nerve-wracking. A baby can start crying on board and this may be embarrassing for the parents. Regardless, you have no choice than to fly with your baby. If you are worried about flying with your baby, Jumia Travel, the online travel agency identifies ways to make flying with your baby less stressful.

Pack smart

Packing smart can seriously help you to reduce stress when travelling with your baby. You should ensure that you pack your baby’s things in an exclusive bag for easy access. This will make it easier to get your preserved bottled breast milk and change diapers.

Bring a travel mate

You can also book a cheap flight ticket for a travel mate on Jumia Travel. Your travel mate or companion will either carry your luggage or take care of your baby. It is better than going alone.

Get the right plane seat

Getting the right seat is essential for you to travel with your baby. The best seat is a window seat. It offers you privacy to nurse your baby. Some people may frown at you breastfeeding your baby openly. So try as much as possible to get a window seat. You can talk to the attendants at the ticket counter.

Leave the big luggage behind

If you can, you should leave your big luggage at home especially if you are vacationing for a few days. With this, you don’t need to pay more for luggage, and you can focus on taking care of your baby on board. But if you need your luggage, you can ask your partner to send it to you. This will only cost a little extra.

Don’t forget baby toys

Babies love being engaged on board. One of the fun ways to do this is by giving them toys. This will keep them distracted and you can worry less about flying with your baby.
