One of the most important skills when traveling with children is packing the hand luggage. Here’s how to pack your infant’s hand baggage well, and don’t worry anymore.
What do you need to be prepared for when traveling with a really small child? The answer is short and simple: for everything. Therefore, the most important thing is, before you go, imagine all the possible needs of your child, which it has every day. When you’ll think about everything, prepare yourself for these unforeseen, unusual events. Now imagine that you need to have, to solve every problem at hand. The child is hungry? Here you are. Teething? I’m ready. Do you have to change? You’re welcome. Too cold, too warm, or maybe wet? Anything can happen and you have to react quickly. And sitting in a closed space on a plane, without the possibility of popping into the shop for the next few hours. That’s why the well-packed baby hand luggage is so important.
There are pros and cons of traveling with a toddler. The plus is that you have the priority of boarding without buying priority boarding. Most airports also have special priority queues for check-in and security checks. The minus is that your child does not have its own luggage. We cope so that I dedicate my luggage entirely to our baby’s things, and the luggage of Sergiusz must serve adults.
Before you go on a trip with your child, you need to pay attention to regulations that vary from airline. As for infants, they can travel from the second week of life, of course under the care of an adult (one infant per adult). Babies do not have their own place. They fly on their parents’ lap, in a special seat belt (you’ll get it on board the plane). You can usually transport (free of charge) 2 pieces of children’s accessories per child – 1 stroller plus one of the following items: car seat, booster stand or travel cot. You can give the trolley immediately, or give it to the plane.
It is also important to choose the right things that you take on board, because you can not pack every item you need on the plane (for example, a fruit-cutting knife). Also, remember that what you pack in your luggage must take up as little space as possible, that’s why it’s good to have gadgets made of lightweight materials, preferably cleverly folded. Also try to think in a compact way. You do not need to take a blanket and curtains to the windows. The blanket can calmly fulfill the function of the cover, and when necessary, darken the window.
