What to bring
Be sure to pack the following in your hand luggage: wet wipes, two sets of clothes, socks, jumper / hoodie, travel blanket and neck pillow.
Ziploc / sandwich bags in various sizes are your best friend. Use them for sealing soiled clothes, carrying liquid medication, snacks and clean sets of clothes.
Keep them entertained by bringing a ‘quiet’ card or (magnetised) board game, activity book or simple craft. A good trick for older toddlers is to get a variety of small toys (like puzzle games), wrap them up and offer one every two hours – this is very effective during long flights.
