Hiiiiiii. Me and my OH are thinking of booking a flight to Germany for April next year (Henry will be 8 months by then). Do any of you have experience flying with a young baby? Is it AWFUL? lol. And would I have to buy him a plane ticket? x x x

Ive just booked a holiday for me hubby and baby to be for next august, she will be nine months, we had to pay for her. . . .29!!!!! Laughing I havent got any experience flying with babies, I am usually one of those horrible people that roll their eyes and tuts when a woman walks on a plane with a baby, now i'm going to be one! Laughing The baby doesnt have their own seat, they have to sit on your lap.

just want to share your dilema, we live in leeds and OHs mum is in devon. Its only a 30 min flight but would take about 7 hrs to drive!!!! Just dont know how old baby has to be, im more worried about there little ears than anything else! my OH doesnt drive so i would have to drive the whole way and ive never driven that far, not by a long way!!!! Flying would be sooooooo much easier, we could go more often! x x

I have seen that you can buy little jelly ear plugs for babies to help protect their ears.

I used to be one of those women too. I can't wait to be tutted at! lol. Hopefully Henry will sleep the whole time, it's only a 1hr30mins flight. Who're you flying with? And are you going far? x x x

Ours is a 4 hour flight to turkey, I wouldnt have chosen to do it really but my big bro is getting married over there so i wouldnt miss it for the world. We have booked with Thomas Cook as they are sorting the wedding but i think the policy applies for most airlines, you do need to get him a passport.

I flew with Tayla when she was 3 and 4months old (cyprus-UK so 4-5hour flight) the way there was a night flight and she was brill....got tutted at loads lol but she didnt make a peep!
The way back was an afternoon flight, we were delayed a coule of hours and then had to sit on the plane an hour before it even moved Mad she had had a bit of a cry then but was fine the rest of the way!
You get either have them on your lap or pay for a seat and use their car seat (has to be a certain type and baby had to be 6months+)
Make sure u take plenty of bottles or a dummy for take off and landing to help their ears.

I know! They're just doing it so you have to buy them a new passport every time you want to fly. It's stupid. x

Hey..

We are flying home to Inverness from London a week on friday. I am slightly nervous about it as on the way back I will be on my own with her. I am taking a slightly bigger rucksack as hand luggage so i can have a few bottles, dummies and toys to amuse her.. I know its only a short flght... about 1 hour and 20 mins but well we all know how unpredictable and easily bored bubs can get.

She needs to get used to it tho as we will be doing it atleast 4 times a year

I'll make you all feel better - we're flying to New Zealand which in total will be about 30 hours from leaving the UK to arriving in NZ. George will be 8 months and I'm just going to try and not think about it at all until nearer the time.

Things we do so that our family can see our LO.... Smile

I fly my daughter Kaila when she was at her 6th month. She seems enjoyed at that time.
