Traveling with a babe or kiddo can be stressful and overwhelming. Read through our best tips to make sure traveling is stress-free and enjoyable for all.
Tip #1: For any type of car seat, make sure your car seat is FAA certified; we recommend bringing your seat’s FAA documentation (typically a sticker on the seat or manual) and having the FAA and airline rules printed or bookmarked on your phone.
Tip #2: If you’re concerned about your car seat getting damaged and have the budget for it, consider purchasing an additional inexpensive, lightweight, FAA certified seat specifically for air travel.
Tip #3: A travel bag protects your car seat from both physical and environmental damage: some brands offer straps or wheels for easy transportation. I have loved this car set travel bag from Britax.
Tip #4: Whenever your baby is in his seat, make sure to properly fasten all straps to provide a safe and secure environment.
Tip #5: Babies & Kids feed off of your energy; so if you are calm and confident during travel, they will be too! If possible, try and book flights around nap or bedtime so that if all else fails, everyone can sleep.
