Here is my checklist for baby after years of refinement. Flying with a baby can be a lot easier when you're fully prepared. But when flying with children, it's essential.
Do you really want to be one of those families waiting endlessly at baggage claim for their shrink-wrapped buggy, multiple car seats, and mountain of luggage? Or, would you rather float through it all with relaxed ease? Travelling with baby can be hassle-free, if you're prepared to take the time to plan a packing list for travel in advance. Having the right baby travel gear at the right time is essential.
Take advice from someone who has been through the over-zealous overpacking of a first time parent (bringing bottle warmer, microwave steriliser, Beaba Babycook, Annabel Karmel cookbook, endless food containers, and bagfuls of toys and books for 1-2 week holiday, only to leave half of it behind when too much shopping at destination left too little space to bring it all back on the return). I have since seen the light of streamlining. Flying with children is akin to planning a military operation. But that doesn't mean you have to bring the entire battalion supply chain with you. Read on for crucial tips on baby travel gear, forget the rest.
