Travelling with newborn

Updated on February 24, 2015

Travelling with a newborn?

Are you travelling with a newborn? Is it your first time with your precious cargo? Worried? That's what happened to me the first time I travelled with my baby. Don't worry! The main thing is that you have to be prepared.

Create a list of things to do and to take with you. Hold on! I already did it for you.

One thing I can say. I think it's easier to travel with newborns because they can't run away from you. Many parents think their babies are fragile and I can understand that, but they are tough as well.

Is it safe to travel with a newborn on a plane?

Sky cot is the answer!

My baby was 3 months old and I had to fly quite far.From Europe to Asia and I was worried.No problem.Just be prepared. Think of it as an army operation. Start preparing a few days before the flight.

The best thing you can do is to book a sky cot or bassinet. A bassinet or bassinette is a bed specifically for babies on the plane. But do it quite early because all of them might be booked. You might be like because your baby might sleep a whole flight. That would be great!

      It is really true what you said- travelling with a newborn is easier than travelling with a toddler. They mostly eat and sleep anyway!
