Travel & Bottle Feeding: What To Take

But fear not! We’ve compiled a list of tips for traveling with a baby that will help keep both parent and baby happy when you’re on the road. Familiarize yourself with these hacks and your future self will thank you (we promise).
Feeding Your Baby On a Plane
This might just be the part every parent dreads. Feeding in such a tight space can be tricky, and you’ll probably be worried about your baby getting upset (especially if the flight is long-haul).
Here are some great tips that will help you calm and feed your baby on a plane:
- Ask the Cabin Crew For Assistance
If you ask nicely, the cabin crew will be more than happy to help you when it’s time to feed your baby. You can request that they gently warm your baby’s bottle to encourage sleep and prevent their little ears from popping.
Asking to be moved to a window seat provides you with an extra spot to prop your arm up while feeding your baby. You’ll enjoy a little bit more calm and privacy for those precious feeding moments, and you’ll also get a better view of the world below!
