A lot of babies cry on their first time to fly on a plane. My daughter was eight months old when she first flew. We went to Pensacola Florida in March 2006 and and I can say that she was pretty good because she didn't cry at all. I think she got used to it when she was still in my tummy (lol). I ran from one side of that huge Houston Airport to the other side in order to catch our connecting flight to Pittsburgh. Whew that was tough because I was 7 months old preggy then! My husband and I said that we will never get a connecting flight with a very limited time to catch up especially in a very big airport like Texas.
With my son, he was 14 months old when he first travel on a plane. We came here in Korea in March of last year (2008) and I am so glad and lucky that both my kids are very good to travel with. They just play with the toys we brought and sleep when they are tired. Here's EJ sleeping from a very long-arduous flight. (Atlanta Georgia to Seoul Korea.)
Here's some tips when you are traveling with kids:
- Be sure to bring some of their favorite toys;
- Snacks and drinks;
- Coloring books and pens;
- extra pair of clothes and towel; and
- chewing gum.
