The one thing you need to make sure of when flying with a baby

Jade Hayden

Travelling with a child can be a hassle at the best of times.

They’ll get hungry, they’ll get tired, and most of the time they won’t even be able to tell you if they’re hungry or tired. They’ll just cry in an enclosed space and you won’t be able to do anything about it because you’ll be on the go.

The above scenario only gets more worrisome if you include a long haul flight and a young baby.

Sure, the journey might go off without a hitch, but it also might not.

Still though, irrespective of what kind of flight you have, there is something you can do to make things go a little more smoothly – ensure your baby is totally hydrated at all times by brining way more liquids than you need.

No matter how long your flight, you’ll need to make sure that you’ve got a considerable amount of liquids with you.

Whether it’s juice, milk, or or water, flying can dehydrate adults a considerable amount, which means that they’re likely to dehydrate young children – especially babies – even further.

If your baby is too young to drink water or juice, make sure you’ve got enough milk to keep them happy for longer than the length of the flight too.

You never know when delays will strike.
