TIPS FOR FLYING WITH A BABY OR TODDLER
I took both international flights and domestic flights with my son.
Fortunately, he took a nap on domestic flights, but he couldn’t sleep well on international flight.
In my opinion, baby bassinet of airplane is a little bit small for 1 year old. So we had to prepare other baby bed for him.
Flight on daytime is soooo hard, because children hate boring. Please bring some snacks, toys, books, and tablet.
Also, inside of an airplane is dry and the temperature is unstable, so I recommend you give water your child often and prepare some clothes.
