Survive Plane Travel With Kids

Survive Plane Travel With Kids

Foreign travel is mostly not idyllic time spent gazing at nature’s creations with appreciative offspring. There are many sucky moments spent (almost) hating life waiting for lost luggage or headed down the tarmac for a 15 hour flight with 2 kids under 5. Air travel with the kiddos requires a few feats of ingenuity. Here were mine…

3 ways to survive plane travel with small kids:

1. Pack mad gadgets We bought a Fire HD 8 Tablet for our summer trip. At first I scolded myself severely. I’ve walked by kids on gadgets many a time patting myself on the back for being a superior parent. So I stashed it in a drawer and reassured myself I would return it. Fast forward to the end of the trip. Thank you, thank you, thank you divine foresight that made me come to my senses. This thing was the absolute miracle, 100% needed savior of my trip. When you do need to pull out this kid proof, padded, fall resistant sucker you kiss it and thank g-d for Youtube.

2. Tote A plethora of snacks – A wise person (probably) once said: Where there’s a screaming mouth, there shall be a morsel to shove in it. This applies to adults as well. My health freaky go to snacks were:

NuttZo 2 Go

Vigilant Eats superfood travel cups

RX Bars for kids

Urban Remedy Wellness Shots

3. Be Sneaky – A fantastic trick we used on our last flight was to not book all our seats all in a row. We were 4 (but we didn’t buy a seat for the baby). We booked the aisle, the window and the adjacent aisle seat. That way, when the poor guy who got the seat in between me and my kids understood his twisted fate, he begged to be re-seated leaving us 4 seats instead of 3 with more room for the kids to stretch out. Tricky yet effective.

Over and out,
