Ask Amy: Tips for Flying with Little Ones

Flying with little ones this summer? We’ve got tips for what to pre-load on your phone, how to manage takeoff and landing discomfort, and how to decide whether you want to get on the plane first–or absolutely last.

Flying with little ones this summer? It's always a little extra complicated. Listener Diane asked:

"My husband and I are flying from Philadelphia to Texas. My kids have never flown before. Any advice for air travel with little kids?"

Amy says the two keys to successful flights with little ones are preparation and options, and in this episode she explains:

  • how to know for sure what your kid will watch before you get on the plane
  • why you might actually want to be the LAST ones on the plane (not the first)
  • and why you can never have too many Ziploc bags.
