Travelling with baby on a plane can be overwhelming. These tips will help you prepare for flights with your little one in style.

Travelling with a baby on a plane can be overwhelming. They’re so small, but seem to need so much.

The good news is that through some careful planning, you can easily prepare for a smooth(er) flight with a little one (or two). From figuring out what can go in your carry-on bag to how to get through the security checkpoint with ease, the Travelling Baby Style infographic from the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) has you covered.

This handy, dandy infographic tells you everything you need to know about travelling with baby on a plane. Here are a few highlights to help make your travel experience a breeze.

Travelling Baby Style

• If you are travelling with an infant younger than two years of age (0-24 months), you can bring baby food, milk, formula, water, juice, and other baby items in your carry-on diaper bag.

• Passengers flying with or without their child can bring breast milk in quantities greater than 100mL.

• To help get you through security faster, check if the Family/Special Needs lane is available. The screening officers there offer additional assistance to those who need it. And getting through security faster is an extra bonus for families with babies and young children.

    Wow! perfect match! specially for the “travelling with the little ones” part… very important information to avoid any hiccups at the airport. I must say this is one of many reasons why I started my local business to help moms from all around Canada to travel light and hassle free to my beautiful Ottawa!!
