Make travelling with toddlers and tots easy… follow these practical tips

With the big kids back at school, it’s once again safe for parents of pre-school tots to hit the skies. However, flying with young kids can be a stressful – so don’t think about heading for the airport without reading our top 10 ways tips to survive air travel with toddlers…

1) Give flights a ‘happy check’

Use this formula to check a flight's happy rating

Use this formula to check a flight’s happy rating

If you’re still in the planning stage, make sure you give your flight a ‘happy’ check using a formula created by boffins at the University of Sheffield. Simply enter a few details about the flight you’re considering and our widget will reveal the overall ‘happy’ rating for the flight – based on departure time, seat space and airline punctuality. Happy flight means happy toddler or baby.
Solution: Check your flight here.

Test your flight here: Simply enter the data below and get the flight’s rating for comfort and overall enjoyment.

What you’ll need: Here’s the data you’ll need and where it can be found.

Time score: This is when your flight takes off. Enter the rating as follows:
Morning flight = 10
Evening = 5
Afternoon = 3

Legroom: This is also known as seat pitch and can be found by heading to the following website and clicking throught to the aircraft on your route. Alternatively, simply call the airline and ask for the figure.
Find airline legroom figures here

Punctuality rates of airlines: Click the link below and take your airline’s punctuality rating from the ‘on time’ column. Please enter 56% as 0.56 etc in the calculator.
Find punctuality (on tme) rates here


What your rating means The overall score shows where a flight sits on the scale from poor to perfect. An economy class seat can score a maximum of 15, whereas upgraded flights should be graded on a sale of of 0-20 as follows.

0 = Poor

10 = Good

20 = Perfect

2) Choose the right seats

Use this formula to check a flight's 'happy' rating

Make sure you pic the right seats to suit toddlers or babies

Getting the right seats on the plane will play a key role in seeing your hols off to a stress-free start. Make a poor choice and the cheap seats will bring a whole heap of pain.
Solution: Here’s our guide to the seats that best match you family’s bums…
Window seat or not window seat: Flying with a potty-trained child is likely to mean frequent trips to the loo. Avoid scrambling over fellow passengers by grabbing an aisle seat. If there’s a central row of seats, try booking these to remove the lure of the window. However, if your infant’s in nappies, a window seat will create a ‘quiet’ haven for sleeping tots (and parents) to enjoy without being disturbed by passengers heading to the lavatory, or cabin crew passing hot drinks and meals over their head.
Exit row: These seats have more legroom, but many airlines’ only allow able-bodied passengers – who can help others in the event of an emergency – to occupy them. Having young kids is likely to preclude you. However, it’s common for exit-row seats to not have a recline mechanism – so reserving the row behind is a great way to ensure you won’t get a crushed by the passenger in front.
Bulkhead seats and bassinets: If travelling with a baby, ensure you book a bassinet (cot attached to a bulkhead) as soon as possible. However, all parents with infants will be fighting for these. Make sure you call the airline to book your ticket and reserve your bassinet – ask for an email confirmation, too. Make sure you take this with you. There are size limits, too; British Airways allows babies up to 27.5 lbs on their bassinet. Additionally, you can’t use bassinets during turbulence, during taxi, take-off and landing.
For those with travel sickness: If your kids (or you) suffer motion sickness, try to book seats above the wings as these areas are more stable and should help reduce the effects of turbulence.

3) Getting to the airport

Stress-free travel with meet and greet

Stress-free travel with meet and greet

Public transport, commuters, large suitcases and toddlers create a toxic mix. Swapping buses and trains for the comfort of your own car makes sense for parents looking to avoid tantrums before reaching the terminal.
Solution: Using your own car to reach the airport will help cut anxiety levels. Choose arrive-and-fly convenience of meet and greet parking if travelling with a baby – and drive straight to the terminal where you’ll be met by a chauffeur who’ll park your car while you check in. Alternatively, those with toddlers will benefit from choosing low-cost, high-convenience park and ride services with transfers direct to the terminal doors. Young kids will love the bus ride, too.

4) Stay over the night before you fly

Swerve the early morning alarm and grumpy toddlers with a pre-flight hotel

Swerve the early morning alarm and grumpy toddlers with a pre-flight hotel

A pre-dawn extraction of toddler from cosy bed or cot is unlikely top your list of must-do holiday activities. However, even a mid-morning flight is going to mean an early-morning take off from home, so swerve the pain by booking a pre-flight stop-over at a hotel close to the airport.
Solution: Did you know that adding a hotel room to your airport parking can be done for just a few pounds. In a test, we found booking a room directly with the Holiday Inn Gatwick would cost £67.29, but as part of a package with one week’s Park Mark-approved parking through APH.com it’d cost just £83.00 for room and parking. Buying both separately would cost a total of £135.00.

5) Keep tabs on toddlers at the airport

Keep tabs on toddlers in busy airports with the ‘Mommy I’m Here’ proximity alert

While a three-month old baby shouldn’t prove too difficult to keep within reach, an inquisitive two-year old is less likely to remain static once your back turns…
Solution: Here are a few tips to help ensure your toddler’s travels don’t result in a missed flight or nervous breakdown…
Wireless and subscription-free child tracker: Acting as a wireless leash, the teddy bear-disguised tracker makes a great fashion addition to a toddler’s summer/winter collection – but also offers a tracking system that’ll alert a keyring fob with an alarm should the youngster stray more than 30ft away. If the child’s out of sight, simply press a button to remotely set off a 90db alarm that sounds on the teddy bear – helping you locate the errant offspring. It’s waterproof, can be attached to shoes, belt or other clothing using a toddler-tamper-proof system. The device offers 1,500 channels to choose from and doesn’t require a subscription or mobile connection.
It’ll cost you around £27 and can be purchased here
Temporary tattoos: These temporary identity tattoos could prove a vital link if your pre-schooler does a runner. The pre-ordered tattoos display an emergency number (your mobile) for airport authorities to call when on-the-run tots hand themselves in. Numbers can be printed in advance or written on blank tattoos.
Get details here
Take a snap: Make sure you take a photo of your toddler on the day of travel, you can then show this to airport staff who’ll be able to help locate the child. Also, dressing them in stand-out colours will help you keep tabs on where they’re heading.

6) Beat the rush at check-in time

Use online or mobile check-in to dodge queues

Use online or mobile check-in to dodge queues

With online and app-based check-in available for most airlines, ignoring this new tech could leave you arriving at the desk to find all the good seats have been taken and your family’s left as seat-fodder in different parts of the plane. Using your phone or computer can help get the seat you need, while also cutting toddler-chafing queue time. Pay to reserve a seat with easyJet and they’ll put your kids with you for free… unlike some airlines.
Solutions: Here’s our guide to what you need to know:
Online check-in: Head to the airline’s website as soon as possible to confirm it offers this service. If so, you’ll be able check-in anywhere between 24 hours and 90minutes before the flight departs. In most cases you’ll also be able to choose a seat and print boarding passes for the family. If travelling with bags, you will need to deposit these at a drop-off point in the terminal.
Airline app check-in: From checking-in to grabbing a boarding pass and securing the best seat, your airline app can make flying with a toddler far more efficient and stress free. See what tantrum-dodging functions are offered by checking out your app… read our reviews of the most popular here…

7) Stay up to date with baby food security rules

Make sure you’re aware of latest security restrictions

You might be travelling with an infant for the first time, so making sure you’re up to date with security regulations governing what you can and can’t take through to airside is a must for mums and dads hoping to avoid a mid-air meltdown when hunger strikes.
Solution: Relax, we’ve all the latest details on restrictions right here… Fortunately, baby milk, sterilised water and baby food is all allowed in hand luggage – and in many cases it will be acceptable for this to be more than the usual 100ml cut-off. However, baby food must be packed in compliance with instructions for all other liquids. This includes being placed in a clear plastic bag that can be sealed without being tied. Be prepared for airport security staff to open and screen any baby foods or associated liquids at the security point.

ItemAllowed in hand luggageAllowed in hold luggage
Breast milk, formula milk, cow’s milkYesYes
Sterilised water for the babyYes (must be in a baby bottle)Yes
Soya milk for babiesYesYes

8) Emergency toddler and baby shopping

Need a dummy or Calpol fast? We've a UK-wide airport guide of where to get them

Need a dummy or Calpol fast? We’ve a UK-wide airport guide of where to get them

There are just two rules for most mums and dads in flight club – don’t forget to pack a dummy (or six) and stash of Calpol for older toddlers – don’t forget to buy travel-sized products such as these sachets to prevent the medicine being confiscated at security. Facing the prospect of a four-hour flight nursing a teething or grumpy snot-emitting toddler without the help of either could be enough to warrant handing back your tickets and running for home.
Solution: Fortunately, most airports have emergency systems available for such high-priority incidents… here’s our list of contacts for pharmacies in major UK airports where you should be able to buy Calpol and dummies.

Beat queues and get your toddler on the security fast-track

Tightened security regulations are essential for air travellers’ safety, but the queues they spawn are not so healthy for the sanity of parents with hungry and tired pre-schoolers bothering their ankles and spoiling for a fight.
Solution: Dodge the queues and take advantage of a fast-track security lane if provided by your airport. Using these lanes will typically cost £3-5, but make sure you book in advance as most will have maximum capacity for each time slot. Booking early can also save cash.

10) Keep them healthy

Keep these handy and keep the kids healthy

Keep these handy and keep the kids healthy

After beating the stress of travelling with toddlers and babies, seeing them fall victim to a bug caught on the plane is likely to put a slight dampener on plans. Recent research has revealed where to find the dirtiest and germ-infested locations on a plane.
Solution: Know your enemy and avoid the bugs…
Blankets and pillows: If you’re flying late in the day, make sure you take your own – most airlines will only supply freshly laundered supplies on a daily basis. Sharing the sleep-induced dribble of previous passengers isn’t what the doctor ordered.
Armrests and seatbelts: If you don’t want an armful of E.coli joining your party, a study from the US suggests it might be wise to treat armrests and seatbelts with caution. You won’t be able to avoid them altogether, so make sure you pack some anti-bacterial wipes (such as Dettol Anti-Bacterial Cleansing Surface Wipes) and give your kids’ belts and armrests a good scrub.
Toilet handle: While experience breeds a justifiable terror of any form of communal toilet facility, the innocence of youth could leave toddlers open to all the horror that lies beyond the loo door. Make sure you go in with them and steer their hands away from surfaces and the flush – where E.coli can live happily for up to 48 hours. Take your anti-bacterial wipes here too, and avoid joining the bug-fest created by the average 75 other passengers who’ll also be using the same facility on each flight.
Seat pocket: Tots love delving into pockets to see what they can find – but when the contents have previously included such pleasantries as used tissues, dirty nappies and secondhand chewing gum, they’re highly likely to find a use for that in-flight sick bag they’ve just extracted. Keep those wipes handy for any unplanned incursions.
Tap water: With a 2013 study revealing more than one in 10 planes tested positive for coliform (class of bacteria found in our environment, including human faeces) in their water, we’d advise you buy some bottled supplies in the departure lounge. It’s also a good idea to swerve ice in on-board drinks.
Tray table: Some reports claim passengers have been known to use these to change nappies. We’re sure this is rare… but where did you put those anti-bacterial wipes.

Book your space in an airport lounge – price and child policies

Many parents wrongly believe airport lounges are sober affairs reserved for the pointy-end elite. In fact, most lounges welcome well-behaved toddlers and infants. Many will also allow infants under 2 in for free, with concessions available for those over 24 months in various lounges. With many offering games rooms, family areas and the same complimentary food and drink afforded to adults, parent could well save plenty of money on expensive snacks and refreshments in the public areas of terminal. Don’t look at Exeter – kids under 12 are not allowed in. Check how you could save cash with this graphic – then find information and lounge prices for you and your family below…
