7 Great Subscriptions to Make Flying with Toddlers a Breeze

All airline passengers are familiar with the stress of being seated near a crying kiddo – no one more than that little one’s parents!

“We’re really great about limiting his screen time at home,” my friend, the parent of an 18-month-old, told me recently. “But when we’re flying? All bets are off. You want your movie on my iPad? You want your movie also playing on Daddy’s iPad? Whatever it takes to keep him happy – he’s got it.”

Anxiety about keeping young children quietly entertained for long stretches of flight time (plus the glares of flight attendants and childless passengers) keeps many new parents at home in the first years of their children’s lives.

But traveling with kids can be fun and rewarding. With the right attitude – and some awesome airplane activities in your tool belt – you can enjoy family travel with kids aged five and younger.
