Flying with Kids
We booked the flight. We were going to be in Indonesia for 2 months for my husband’s internship. After much conversation we decided to take both kids. They were 20 months and 9 months old. The travel from where we lived included 9 hour flight, one layover, and a 12 hour flight. I had flown long distances, but this was my husband’s first flight. To say we were nervous was an understatement!
Since then we have flown internationally without or without kids many times. We are much less scared. In fact, our children love flying and it has become a past time for them. I do realize this is not the same for children who do not usually fly, but we have learned some things that will help anyone. Here is our best advice for anyone flying with kids of any ages.
