Flying with a baby can be fun!
Hi, I’m Emma Lovell, the founder of CoziGo.
In 2010, I had to travel on long haul flights with a newborn baby, from Australia to England 5 times in 1 year. My mum was living in England and was diagnosed with Cancer. My husband was still based in Australia, so I had to go back and forth so he could see his baby daughter, whilst I became my mum’s primary carer.
It was during these 10 long haul flights with a baby under that age of 1 that I realised how hard it was for parents that were flying with a baby. First off you had to struggle to get your baby to sleep, and then you had to try to keep your baby asleep.
You see, the airplane bassinets, whilst amazing, are situated was in the worst possible place for your baby’s sleeping needs. They are located right next to the toilets, under the TV’s and overhead lights and in a high traffic area with the air hostesses constantly walking past attending to the passenger’s needs.
It was when my beautiful mum passed away and I finally got home to Australia with my husband and daughter that I decided to do something about it. I wanted to invent a device that would help future Mums & Dads that were in a similar predicament and were on long haul flights with a baby. I also want to take it one step further and made it so CoziGo also fits every stroller and carrycot on the market so that parents everywhere can get out and about and help their babies sleep outside of their cot whilst being protected by the harsh sun!
This was when CoziGo (formerly Fly Babee), was born.
