Top tips for travelling on airplanes with babies:

  • Be prepared to resort to a pacifier. If you haven’t used a bubba-plugger before, then accept that in an airline flight situation using a dummy might just be a wonderful idea. And no, it doesn’t automatically turn your gorgeous babe into a dummy-addicted pre-schooler with buckteeth. Pacifiers are especially helpful for infants to equalise their ears during take-off and landing.
     
  • For long-haul flights (after double-checking with your GP or pharmacist) do be prepared to use Phenergan™ as a short-term assistance for sedation. A plane can be a difficult place for your little one to sleep soundly so for the sake of you all arriving in a better state, and to be respectfully kind to other passengers, a little over-the-counter gentle sedative need not be a horrifically evil thing.
