Child on Airplane: 9 Tips to Make the Moment Less Stressful – 2

From our last discussion, we had discussed things to note when you are with your baby on the plane, now we are concluding the other part of the article.

1. Surprise the child with toys she can not even remember
Find at home some toy that was there “forgotten” and light on the trip, it will surely distract the child for a while, as if it were something new/a gift given to her at that moment.

“This can be done, but not with the character of ‘reward’. Each time she shakes or gets impatient, you’ll even have to find a way to calm her down and those ‘gifts’ can be a resource.

But, letting it be recorded that the child can earn something by behaving well, will only make her believe that good behavior is not necessary, just a way to be gifted. She will feel empowered not to behave well if she does not get a gift, “says Celia.

2. Do not forget to bring essential items to the child
Celia says that parents are already accustomed to the needs of babies. “For these, it is good to remember to consult the airline, because of many offer facilities, including with regard to food. For the older child, there should be no shortage of water, one or two changes of clothes, clothes, sanitary towels, blanket (her reference at bedtime) and some books she likes, “he says.

3. Encourage the child to carry his own bag
Depending on the child’s age, it may be interesting to have her carry her own handbag, with some useful items inside: handkerchiefs, wrap, for example. This saves space in your bag and makes the child feel “great”, “responsible”, which can entertain you for a few more minutes.

However, it is worth noting that children should not be held responsible for important things.

4. Bring extra clothes for them
It is valid for the parents to carry out an exchange of clothes. After all, incidents can happen: the child can knock some juice on your clothes or even vomit. It is not something you would expect, but unfortunately, it can happen. Prevention is best.

5. Read to the child
Parents can also read some book that entertains the child, just not worth exaggerating in quantity and not carry huge books.

6. Bet on the joke of the “airplane police”
A valid idea is to tell the child about the presence of an airplane police officer who keeps an eye on all children and how they are behaving. From this, one can invent several stories. Of course this does not mean “frightening” the child, but rather stimulate your imagination, keeping you entertained for a while.

7. Encourage children to walk just before flight
While waiting for the plane, a good tip is to encourage the child to ride with you at the airport. After all, in the flight you will already be seated for hours, which can annoy the child. But that does not mean “tiring” it, common sense is key.

8. Dress the child in comfortable clothing
“It is fundamental to always opt for comfortable clothes that are easy to wear, remembering that the temperature inside the plane is around 20 ° C. For the feet, sneakers. It is necessary to walk a lot inside the airport, so it is essential that the footwear is equally comfortable.

One can think of appropriate socks for the floor, rubbery on the sole. It is important to walk a little in the aisle of the plane to activate the circulation and this is also for adults, “says Celia.

9. Plan the trip
Celia recalls that in this regard it is good to avoid heavy meals and exhausting activities for the child before the trip. “The whole movement will require extra energy and attention.

Children should not be held responsible for important things such as pushing a bag that can be overlooked and creating unnecessary setbacks. Not leaving at the last minute is key.

Better to arrive at the airport in advance than to have to rush the kids, who have their own pace to walk, “he says.
