Once you tell your friend you’ve booked your first flight – you’ll find pretty much everyone has a horror story to tell. However, if you add a few tools to your belt and ensure proper planning and preparation, you can help make flying with a baby much more bearable …. Even pleasant!>
A baby travel checklist is the ideal way to ensure you don't leave anything behind when going on holidays. It really is the essential baby travel tool. Suddenly when you have a baby you have so many more things you need to pack. What will they sleep in? How many bottles should I pack? Don't forget the steriliser, nappies, wipes, singlets, sheets, the list is endless.
And in most cases your baby will still need to use most of the things that you want to pack right up until the moment you leave – this can leave you forgetting things at the last minute.
By having a baby travel checklist you can start planning the week before hand. You can write down everything you need to take and then as you pack it you simply tick it off the list. This will ensure you leave for your holiday or vacation confident you have not left anything behind.
THINGS TO REMEMBER BEFORE FLYING
Research shows that babies sleep better without distractions. Aeroplanes are busy places and CoziGo will create a comfortable sleep environment. Whilst using the airline bassinet, you will find its soft fully breathable fabric blocks over 90% of light enabling your baby to sleep deeper and for longer.
ALWAYS request a seat with an inflight bassinet if your child is under 2. These need to be pre-booked and come on a first in, first serve basis. Ask when you book your flight then confirm, re-confirm and then call again!
Download your babies favourite lullabies to your Smart Phone so you can put it in the provided pocket on CoziGo and play them via your phones inbuilt speaker when it’s time to go to sleep.
Get your child’s ears checked out if they’re flying for the first time. Your doctor will be able to tell if they’ve got any lurking wax that can cause problems.
YOUR CHILD'S FAVOURITE PROGRAMS
Although there is on-board entertainment on most planes, you may want to consider taking a portable DVD player or IPAD with your child’s favourite programs. Little people don’t easily wear headphones and a small DVD player can be watched with the sound off or low. Remember to pack chargers.
Babies and Children’s meals are not always suitable and on long haul flights, it’s good to have dependable snacks and food that your know your child/baby will eat. Good suggestions are: apples, grapes, cheese/cracker packs, bread rolls, plastic pouches, biscuits etc.
