Flying with a child? Here’s what you need to bring in the cabin

Lists of what can and cannot be taken with you on a plane are most worrying, whether you are traveling alone or with a child. When traveling by air with a baby, remember that airlines including JetBlue do not treat formula milk the same as any other drink, which means you can take more than 100ml (1.1 litre) of milk on board. The same applies to food for babies up to two years of age, which is not subject to the regulations applicable to adults. Before departure, it is worth checking whether there is a designated place to change babies on board. A changing table will be a much more convenient place to change a diaper than a stroller or toilet.

Packing all the necessary clothes for children in your hand luggage is a big challenge. It’s very convenient to travel with a child in summer, when clothes are thinner and take up less space than thick sweaters and sweatshirts, although it is of course worth taking a set with you warmer clothes.

When completing children’s summer clothes , you can not forget about blouses, shorts, bloomers and a hat. The best way to save space in your suitcase is to dress your baby inside out at least until boarding. Depending on the direction of travel, the temperature difference can be very large and the prevailing conditions can be extremely different. It is worth putting a warm blanket in the stroller.
