Flying With Infant!

Based on my experience, it was truly difficult to travel with an infant. The first time we had our family trip was when we went to Kuala Lumpur. It’s a good thing that my husband was there with me. 

She’s a lap child that time since she was just  1 year and 1o months.

The second time we fly was when we went to Brunei Darussalam to visit my husband who was working as Structural Engineer there. This time, it was just me and my daughter. It was really exhausting.

My super excited baby!

I’d like to share some tips on flying with an infant.

1.Prepare the necessary documents and place them on a bag where you can easily put the documents in and out. I prefer to use a sling or body bag aside from the backpack that I used. Secure all necessary documents such as Passport (you and your baby), Itinerary Receipt, Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) of your husband if you will visit your working loved ones in that particular place because this paper will help you reduce travel tax. Don’t forget to bring Marriage Certificate and Birth Certificate of your baby.

2. Place your child’s estimated diapers which will be used before, on or after the flight in a backpack together with her small towels, clothes, baby wipes and make sure that your backpack is not too heavy since you will carry your baby too.

3. Bring your own ballpen to avoid hassle in filling up forms at the airport.

4. If the travel duration is short, you may bring snacks like biscuits. But if the travel time is too long, order food or make an advance order to avoid too much conversation with the flight attendant.

5. Don’t forget to bring your child’s estimated milk and water and place it also in your backpack or if you can handle to bring small baby bag.

6. Bring also her or his favorite toy so that your child will not be bored. You may play with your kid during the take off so your child will not really feel scared. You should hug your kid during sudden turbulence.

7. Ensure that the milk supplement of your child and the diaper brand are available on the country of your destination if your travel is out of country. If not, you should bring milk and diapers in your baggage.

8. Don’t forget to bring vitamins and medicine if necessary.

9. Don’t forget to pray and ask for the Lord’s guidance!

I hope you enjoy your travel with your baby! God bless!
