Best Tips for Parents Flying with Kids
First of all, you should take the time to check the regulations with the specific airline you have chosen to use. There are differences between each one concerning things like how many baby items you can take with you, for example, travel cribs and strollers.
Know the age limits for children requiring their own seat, and when it is acceptable to have the child in the arms of a parent for a whole flight. We oftentimes just look at actual money savings but sometimes the extra couple hundred dollars are worth it to have a little more space to utilize.
Make Things Simple
Wet wipes, baby detergent, and children's Tylenol are also well-advised to be kept close as you never know when they might be a godsend. Make sure each child has their own bag of goodies to keep them entertained - keep it simple but have a few different things to do as even an hour flight can seem to take forever when you have bored or fractious children.
Understand Compensation Rules
Sadly delays have become a regular part of flight travel, but that is not to say they should become acceptable. A delay of more than three hours can be stressful enough for adults but trying to calm kids and keep them entertained can really ruin the opening of your trip. Under EU rules in this situation, you are entitled to claim compensation, and you really should take up that right once you are back in the country.
If you do miss a flight or have a delay be sure to check out the airport for playgrounds and other entertainment ideas, some airports even have hotel beds and mini amusement parks. You never know unless you inquire. And do not hesitate to make a stink with the airport if it was their mistake. I've gotten all kinds of further travel vouchers because of massive delays in the past!
