If you’re struggling to decide what airline to use when it comes to flying with a baby – this infographic will help you make an informed decision and reduce your stress.

It covers what charges you will be up for to fly with your baby, what items can be carried in addition to your usual luggage allowance and if you are entitled to priority boarding.

My top tip for flying with a baby under 2: take a nappy bag, place 1 nappy and 4 wipes into it and tie it up once. Prepare around 10 of these and put them in one corner of your hand luggage. That way, when it comes to nappy change, you can just dig your hand in to your bag and pull out everything you need for one nappy change and come back empty handed….. well, almost… don’t forget bubba!
