Flying with a Newborn Baby ���� ✈️ Travel Tips for Surviving Baby’s First Flight

Video taken from the channel: Family on Standby

Flying with a newborn is (comparatively–to, say–a toddler) easy. A baby this small is actually easy to keep fairly separated from the germ-laden population as they are not yet mobile. When Bub was not in his car seat, one of us was holding him, and various baby admirers seemed to.

Air travel is appropriate for most infants. Before you fly with your baby, however, consider: Your baby’s age. Your baby’s doctor might discourage unnecessary air travel shortly after birth.

Newborns have developing immune systems and air travel might increase their risk of. Traveling with an infant during the first few months of life is both easier and harder than flying with older kids or even toddlers. Which is why it’s a good idea to go into it with clear eyes and realistic expectations. Here’s what you should know before bringing a newborn on board.

Newborns Can Often Fly Free — If They Stay in Your Lap. Flying With A Newborn Baby Tips Firstly, rest assured, flying with a newborn is so much easier than when they are crawling or walking! But if this is your first baby, then just driving the car with a newborn baby inside can be daunting (at least it was for me), let alone flying in a plane. You’ll probably want to stick pretty close to home for the first few months after your baby’s born.

Between feedings and diaper changes, a new baby requires almost nonstop attention, and the risk of a newborn catching something while traveling is too great. Besides, you’ll probably be exhausted. When you fly with an infant, you get a pass on expressed breastmilk and formula, and sometimes get a pass on bottled water and juice coming through security (be sure to say it’s for the baby’s needs). We always carry a bunch of snacks. Our favorites include pouches, almonds, carrot.

But flying with a baby can also be an ordeal, especially in the United States, where many airlines these days seem ambivalent about their youngest passengers. It’s increasingly common, for. At Delta Air Lines, infants and children under 2 years old can travel on the lap of an adult for free (domestically) or purchase a ticket and use their own seat on the aircraft in an FAA-approved child safety seat or CARES harness on most flights.

Due to FAA safety requirements, 1 adult passenger may only carry 1 lap-held infant. While you can travel with a newborn baby, including airplane travel, it doesn’t mean that you should. A lot depends on your baby’s age and health. It’s not so much the oxygen levels, the pressurized cabin on the plane, or the effects of high altitude. There is no proven connection between airplane travel and SIDS.

Traveling with children and infants You may be required to present proof of age (such as a birth certificate) for any children under the age of 18. Families with children under 2 years old can ask to board early at the gate. Only 1 carry-on diaper bag per child is allowed.

While flying, swaddle and sleep your baby as you normally would and they should be quite happy with the constant noise and vibration of the plane.

Even if you opt to share your seat with the baby by holding it in your arms, you can take a rest by putting the car seat on the floor after takeoff and letting the baby rest there for a while.

If you don’t want to lug your car seat on the airplane (a couple of airlines actually provide seats for pint-size passengers, so ask when you book), consider using an FAA-approved harness called CARES (Child Aviation Restraint System).

  • Reaching out to this beautiful community for prayers, I recently had my baby girl which became an emergency csection. Thank you to the lord we are both safe and home now but I’ve struggled with the recovery and adjustments. So please if you have a spare moment I ask that you keep me in your prayers. Much love ❤️

  • What age was the lil one, my daughter is a month old and we will be flying back home Ina 3hr flight… I am freaking concerned right now… Your video was encouraging!! God bless you

  • Love your channel. Do you check the stroller at the gate? What type of baggage do you use for carry on? I too work at an airline but recently found out we’re expecting our first child. �� I know packing will completely change.

  • Totally slipped my mindI forgot to add a Bible verse in the video☹️

    Here it is…��

    “The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.”

    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭ 8:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  • I’ll be traveling without my hubby for the first time with our newborn…this video has been so helpful! Hopefully it goes smoothly! Thank you!

  • Love this vlogs! Olive is such a little angel! Thank you for taking the time to film this first travel experience! Have a good time in Canada ��

  • She’s GORGEOUS! I found your channel cuz I’m about to have my second naturally and we’ll be going on vacation two months after she arrives, so this video was great

  • Melissa you look a lot like one of my old friend who’s name is Amy. Your voice too…it’s almost creepy. If you wanna know who your doppelgänger is just ask me lol

  • Starting in a little less than a month, I’m going to get non-rev benefits. I’m assuming because I’m new I’ll start off at the bottom of the standby lists?

  • You guys must have high priority to be able to get on a flight together. It’s usually just my son and I…and I get anxiety waiting for seat assignments! Haha!
    More power to your family of 4. Great video ����

  • Wonderfull �� obvious thumbs up! Love your channel! Just joined in! Give a check on mine! If you like join me too ✌️have a great week

  • your baby looks like a dream to travel with.. I’m so nervous cause mine doesn’t sleep in a bassinet..and has tummy issues. No troubles with boob thing, as he always feeds constantly lol

  • I have been watching your videos for a couple of days now and I must say I am really impressed with the quality of them and how well you research your content. Great job, fantastic channel and I will definitely recommend it to my friend. I hope you get millions of subscribers and that you will be able to make good money on it because it really looks like you’re working hard and working hard should be well paid:)

  • PRAYER REQUEST my fiance & i recently lost our baby girl & trying to get pregnant again but were scared of it happening again pls pray for a safe pregnancy and delivery

  • Best advice is don’t. We don’t need to listen to this. Piss off with your screaming scrote. Do us a favour. Yes that’s spelled correctly. It time the silent majority spoke up against these selfish and inconsiderate people.

  • Just traveled with a 8 month old by myself! Best thing I did was buy an extra seat for the return flight. He slept the whole flight (3hrs) in his car seat versus the crying he did on the 1st flight on my lap.

  • Hello m flying to India after 20 days from now with my 5 months old,,wonder if I can carry her stroller and car seat?? will that be allowed to carry with?

  • Stephen is so great in photography and editing vlogs… im so surprised, throughout the trip hunter didn’t shed a tear. Such a good girl ������

  • You are literally so beautiful with no makeup on (and of course with). But the whole clip where you were outside, you looked so natural and so pretty ��

  • U are so beautiful not wearing makeup. But you are also beautiful with makeup too. Love the family.. God is for u and is with you.

  • Please pray for me, Fear has really been trying to attack me and depression is trying to shred every ounce of faith I have in my bones, I feel like there is no way out and no happy ending�� I would really appreciate it if you could pray for God to wrap his arms around me and help me through this hard challenging time I really need love and support❤ Thank you so much❤

  • Love your adventures!!!
    Remember for future air travels with baby, seatbelt goes around YOU, never around the baby when in your lap. You just hold your baby in your lap. Might want to check with your Airline their policy for seatbelt procedures for lap children.

  • Hi! what kind of car seat and stroller did you use? Did you take a car seat and the car seat base separately from the stroller? Or did you use the stroller with the car seat on it and then just bring a base? I live in Chicago but am from Miami, pregnant now and kind of stressing how I’m going to be able to travel home by myself whenever my husband can’t come with me. I only have two arms!! Thank you!

  • Hi I know you’re doing a lot of baby videos right now. Are there any plans to do any more faith-based videos? Like how to keep your excitement about Christ in a world that offers temptations. How to meet other Christian friends but not get stuck in a bubble to where you’re not spreading the word of Christ?

  • I’m so thankful for this video. I’m due with baby girl in October and will be traveling home for the holidays and I was worried about how we could travel with her comfortably

  • Cute.. May God give her all wellness! Guys when u are coming to India again. Please visit Kerala it’s beautiful state in South…

  • which stroller did you have??? im buying the uppababy and comes with the bassinet and toddler seat plus ill have the mesa car seat too �� should i check in the toddler seat/bassinet at the front and they will check in the stroller base and car seat since they come apart???

  • When you put the carrier on before getting into the airport I knew security was gonna make you take it off, they usually are a pain in the butt (but for a good reason ��)

  • My wife (and 3 month old son) is flying to Europe in 12 hours. Im a bit nervous because she will be flying alone with him. Thanks for sharing this video. I hadnt even thought of bringing his boppy pillow as part of a bed. Fantastic idea. Thank you.

  • Hello!! but did you check in the car seat too? or they let you have it in the seat with you? do you have to travel with the base of the car seat too? I’m FTM and I have no clue haha I also bought the uppababy vista and I want to make sure I travel with the right stuff. thanks!

  • Today for first time I saw ur Vlogs n I just love them. God blessed u, ur family n ur baby. U fullfilled our wish to see different countries. Love from India ����

  • If you gate check your stroller, can the stroller be any size? I read something about light weight compact strollers, is that only if you want to take it on the plane?

  • You make it look so easy!!!!! We had a fairly easy time with one baby but It seems so much harder with 2…and my oldest with be almost 9. ����

  • Great tips! Love how this is organized and concise. I also like to check the stroller right away and then wear my baby through security. For those who are bringing a carseat onboard it’s important to remember that it either needs to go in a window seat, or for airplanes with two aisles it can go in the middle seat of the center row. I find that flying with a baby or toddler usually ends up being easier than expected. �� Heidi

  • She’s a star!!! took the flight in her stride and that little yellow outfit for cocktails………gorgeous!!!! Can’t wait to see her on some longer flights and handling the bustle of some Asian cities.

  • Thanks for all the tips! What was your experience bringing the Uppababy stroller to your trip? I know some people use travel strollers but I hope to be able to travel with the Uppababy stroller:)

  • Aww Milena this video is like a flashback to your honey moon travel vlog �� esp the airport bit. It is like a cute before and after baby, but the feel is LOVE all the way for both �� love this so much��

  • Trust me, here in Florida, the last thing you wanna be wearing is foundation, or lotsa makeup. You purty without it, Sugar!! Lil mascara, lip gloss,!

  • Before traveling by plane with a baby, bare in mind that he/she have to be maximum as long as the bassinet and not more than 10 kg, approx 22. 5 lbs. The airline staff may deny you the bassinet due to obvious safety reasons. If you know the baby is bigger, I suggest you buy or bid for an extra seat to make the baby and you more comfortable during a long flight. Otherwise babies are just adorable and love to have them on my flights ��

  • Hey beautiful. Always love watching you guys. Just a tip, cause I’m not sure whether you noticed. For the past couple of videos you seem to have a wee bit of something stuck behind your lens. 1:41 on the right. You should be able to clean it somehow depending on your gear. Sorry I can’t be more precise. Sending love. Lina


    I used to watch your channel years ago & then idk what happened. I made a new yt & lost touch i guess. Then i search today traveling w a baby & YOU HAVE A WHOLE CHILD. holy sh*t. Congrats dude!!! ����

  • So annoying when people make a big deal about flying with a baby. Life doesn’t stop because you had a baby. Those are the people who completely change there life when they have kids, stop having fun and are miserable. Good for you guys!!

  • Hi im also gonna travel with my 6 months baby this 26th, i have some few questions if thats ok.
    are they really strict with the babies stuff and bag weight? Is it ok to their own bag and make use of my own bag allowance?
    is it required to use a coverbag for the stroller?
    how was the process during security with the baby?

  • As a former TSA agent, I thank you for not making a huge stink about the pat down or speaking about us negatively!

    We don’t like having to pat people down any more than people like getting them! We just like making sure everyone is safe. Just so you know, you can suggest a private room if you aren’t comfortable getting pat down in public!

    Love your videos, I’ve been watching for years now! <3

  • We have a Doona (3 in 1) its a carseat stroller and carrier. Will we be needing a cover for it? We are heading to Hawaii in 2 months

  • Best advice is don’t take them on planes. Flights are expensive and the least I expect is to travel in comfort and peace and quiet. We don’t have to listen to this on flights. Its time the silent majority spoke up against these selfish and inconsiderate people. _zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • You guys make a beautiful family and seem like a great team and wonderful parents. May I just suggest to at least do a proper summary where you actually list the tips and tricks, if they are what you are aiming for? This was more like a diary-type video documenting the whole experience with a focus on meals one may get on a plane:)

  • I was impressed with how much you vlogged. When I travel I’m so tired, I get a little footage here and there. Rarely do I vlog on the plane. I’m always so nervous until I feel the wheels touch the ground. It’s a good thing you were able to experience traveling with your baby without taking in all of the different expert comments you received. LOL Your baby was fine and slept through the flight. I watched the entire video which is usual for me. You kept my attention. I love that dad shared a bit of baby involvement. The dog pads are great and cheaper than the ones used in hospitals and they’re probably dog pads too. Again good job on the vlog!

  • So funny.. I literally came to the comment section to let you know that you are so stunning even without makeup but apparently other people agree with me lol don’t get me wrong your makeup skills are awesome and I wish I could beat my face like that LOL but you definitely don’t need it!

  • I am traveling with my 4 month old on a few hours so this was a great video to watch beforehand. Good to know I can keep the stroller until the gate.

  • Great video:) your baby is so cute.
    As a flight attendant… i suggest you dont put your baby on the floor next time, im surprised no one said anything to you. If there is any turbulence, there is nothing securing your baby so she will go flying. Turbulence can hit at any time, for the most part pilots are able to identify areas with turbulence but there is also a thing called clear turbulence that pilots cannot predict.

  • Other things I learned when traveling with tiny littles:
    1: Have them tag every piece of your stroller of it comes in multiple pieces! I’ve had airlines lose the seats to mine before!
    2: Toss an extra shirt for MYSELF in the diaper bag! If baby spits up a lot or poops, you’ll need a change of clothes too.
    3: Wearing baby helps keep strangers from touching/ peeking in and disrupting a sleeping little one.
    Great list of essentials! Little Ryland is just precious ��

  • Saying “you’re brave” to a parent traveling with an infant is just plain rude. It accomplished nothing by saying it. Just shows how passive aggressive they are

  • I flew from the U.S. to Europe once on a flight with a little family that had a baby about Olive’s age. That poor baby slept about 45 minutes the whole flight. She just cried and cried and cried. �� The parents looked TRASHED by the time that flight touched down. I am SO glad things went well for the McGowan family on this trip.

  • Absolutely dreading my flight from London to Georgia with my newborn ��. It’s guaranteed that the pilot will have to take a massive detour through every state in America before landing in Georgia ��. Every passenger on the plane is going to be like ��������!

  • Yes she flies for free or less than another ticket but if there is an emergency you have to put your baby on the floor. You’ll have no where to strap her in. This is why you need to get your baby a seat and strap her carseat on her seat and in any emergency you strap your baby in and she will be safe.

  • Baby: Comfortable, adorable, more..☺️

    Me: scared of security and the beeping, saying “oh my lanta, ugh this seatbelt tho ����‍♀️


  • You guys should do a scrap book of her boarding passes for her to keep and to look back on when she’s older that would be amazing!!!

  • You have probably figured this out by now, but a tip is to not pack babys stuff in a separate suitcase. Split babys stuff across all suitcases, that way if anything get lost, you still have her clothes, and aren’t standing there with her suitcase missing.

  • Thank you so much for this video ill be doing a 10 hour journey from Toronto to Brazil via Air Canada by my lonesome and I was scared about what to expect now im a bit calmer. Thanks again ��������

  • Could you tell me about stoller do i have to check in with luggage or can i keep with me stoller?or if i keep my stoller where i should keep it?
    I’m going to Bangladesh so i have to change my flight in China…it’s 22 hours travel

  • It s interesting u put ur backpack on the handle coz our stroller couldnt handle it:/ one time almost an accident luckily we had more soft stuff in the bag….

  • I’m about to take my 6 month old on a flight for her first time…by myself. I am totally freaking out about this..and this video has kind of calmed my nerves. thank you so much.

  • I love it that ur chill:)
    it is really like a mental game. my family loves to travel and im on my 3rd pregnancy so yah this will be another mental game when we go back home:)

  • We traveled with our 2 month old baby across the Atlantic and I was very nervous! But she fell asleep at take off, we put her in the bassinet and she slept THE WHOLE TIME! She usually wakes up every 2-3 hours. Of course I couldn’t sleep was checking on her the whole time!

    Totally different story flying with a 6 month old on a Ryanair flight…

  • So am 5 months pregnant and traveling with one year old and 6 year old alone for 14 hours I don’t know how m gonna manage because my kids are the naughtiest kids. In the world �������� please give me some tips and do I have to tell them about the bassinet before we travel or they just give us and also where did u put the stroller and what kind of stroller should I take plzz help

  • Thank you for capturing Olive feeding in public! I know it’s something you do quite often, but it can be so intimidating for first time mothers and just nursing mothers in general. Unfortunately in the states there is a lot of judgement and stigma surrounding nursing in public. I’ve done It countless times in the last four years and will continue to do so once our third arrives. I’ve encountered nasty remarks and rude stares, but once actually got thanked for helping to normalize it! Anyway, just wanted to commend you. I know how incredibly hard yet rewarding breastfeeding can be:)

  • I plan on traveling with my baby. Our stroller is a travel system…do you know if I can check on our car seat and booster seat with the airline and then bring our stroller to the gate?

  • Great video work! Never got boring. You Kristen said you would breastfeed her at takeoff and landing to help her pop her ears and then I understood you didn’t because she slept… but can a baby have problems if you don’t breastfeed them during takeoff/landing? Is it easier for them to pop during sleep…?

  • I’m watching this because we plan to travel with our two month old and your baby is a lot chiller than mine! He would never let me put him in that bassinet �� when the lady told you that you were brave for traveling with a baby she was referring to people with non chill babies. Lol

  • Hey guys! Got a question for youhow much time did your baby spend in the car seat? We’re planning a flight with a 4mo baby and were thinking what kind of baby transportation device to take with us:)

  • That baby is such a good flyer! Mine definitely would not be like that. On top of not liking to sleep in a bassinet she prefers sleeping in our arms �� we have a 4 1/2 month old and I’m sure she’ll be a bit difficult. I would more likely book a red eye so she can sleep throughout the flight. Great Video!

  • Girl you look so good for just having a baby!:) We’re actually starting our full time travel journey with our toddler in less than a month! (We’ll be documenting it all on our channel).

  • The cover put over your stroller keeps away the sunlight, which is essential for babys to produce Vitamin D. So make sure she gets all the light:-) love you!! Enjoy your time at home

  • Hey well done! We first flew when my daughter was 4 months old. Just a short 2 hr flight from Manchester to Majorca and she slept through it all ������.

  • What if you are only flying domestically? Would you still need to bring ID for the baby? Would a birth certificate be sufficient or does it have to be photo ID?

  • Another tip is that most airlines let you gate check your stroler if it’s going to be easer to get your baby though the airport with it. Then when you get off the plain they hand it back to you and put your baby righr back in.

  • THANK YOU!!My wife and I are expecting our 1st one Feb 2020. I’ve always wondered how to travel with our lil one to be.Thank s to your advice and tips…I get to say “I got this” ��

  • Im Having my baby in december and will travel to mexico february alone with baby because my boyfriend lives in mexico! very helpful. does anyone have anymore tips?

  • There’s no way that chunky lil man is 3 months?!??? He looks like he’s ready for college! �� he’s sooooo stinkin’ cute! Melissa what are you feeding him?!?!!! Xoxo you’re all sooooo cute

  • Hi im also gonna travel with my 6 months baby this 26th, i have some few questions if thats ok.
    are they really strict with the babies stuff and bag weight? Is it ok to their own bag and make use of my own bag allowance?
    is it required to use a coverbag for the stroller?
    how was the process during security with the baby?

  • I was browsing in you tube hoping for a vlogg than can help me with travelling with a newborn. I found you! Thank you so much. We have the same baby carrier. Babybjörn is made in Sweden.
    Take off & landing if the baby sleeps, let them sleep! This is the best tip ��

  • Im flying with my 4 month old baby in a couple weeks. about a 6 hour flight.. with a layover. and out flight leaves at 7 am so its an all day thing. Pray for me lol

  • Do you have any tips on how to travel internationally with two babies under two yrs old? In short of time im going to travel with my twins with total 24 hr long flight. Any advice pls

  • The issue with red eye is…. if the baby doesn’t sleep well on the plane, then he/she wakes up the whole plane:P Great informative video, thanks for sharing the tips!

  • I think you just need to let your baby feel how he or she feels. What is this negativity to baby crying? I agree it’s not plesent but nothing wrong with a crying baby. I never get upset at parents for upset children in public, you can’t control their emotions. I could understand maybe a kid that is throwing things but just crying is not a crime. We need to be more open to feelings and understanding that crying is not a bad thing and is ok weather you are a baby, teen, adult or whatever. If baby feels like crying the whole flight than cry. Tend to the bay best you can and comfort but don’t worry about if he or she can be stopped. The more you relax the more baby will too.

  • OH MY GOSH I still can’t get over the fact that u already had him, NEVERMIND the fact that hes 3 months+….. Hes ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE… And Momma is is 1 HOT �������� Momma!!!!! You look AHHHMAZZZING!!!!! So HAPPY for u and ur beautiful family… #Blessings #3BeautifulBabies ❤❤����‍♂️��‍♀️��

  • I’m about to go on a 10+ hour flight for the first time with my 4 month old son. I appreciate the tips on this video, and I just want to say: I’m gonna hold you to everything you said here. EVERYTHING!

    Just kidding. the tip about a compact stroller and being checked in free is VERY much appreciated. Thanks for the tips.

  • Does your baby ride in a car without a car seatif not why do you think it’s okay for your baby to fly without a car this just looks dangerous you have to know it is and I can’t believe in airline will allow anyone to fly like that it’s crazy to me especially since according to every single airline your baby is supposed to be in a car seat for safety reasons but yet they don’t enforce it not judging you judging the airlines

  • What do you do about the basinet that they give for infants? My flights front rows where the basients usually are is booked so do you know what happens now?
    The flight is 15 hour long btw.

  • Hi, do you have any advice for flying with a 2-3 month old? And keeping a baby protected in West Africa (protected from things like Malaria etc)? I’m due to give birth in April and hope to attend a wedding in Ghana (West Africa) in August. So i’ll be flying from London, UK to Ghana which is a 6.5hr flight.

  • Awesome video! I’m traveling next month from NYC to Indiana with my soon to be on travel day two month old. I am a single parent and hope, to the heavens above, that she sleeps the entire flight. There will be connections, but we will fly first class so I could be comfortable. I saw the stroller at the gate, which answered one of my mental questions. I also didn’t see ear muffs/plugs on the baby, which kind of answered another unless he did have a pair. Thank you!

  • I wish I could pay extra to fly on a plane where kids under 8 are not allowed.
    I’m pregnant and I know I’ll have to take my baby to Portugal from NY to meet my parents when he’s about 4 months and all I can think about is apologizing to anyone sitting next to me.
    There should be a way for people to know when there’s a baby/toddler traveling near them or at the very least have a section where they are not allowed.
    I travel about once a month and sitting next to a crying baby is the worse. I’ll try my best to not take my baby on planes, unless it’s an emergency.

  • Can you include a discount code to buy a perfect baby like Hunter? Much appreciate it! Love your videos now that she’s here guys.

  • I loved traveling when my kids were babies. So easy! Even with a toddler and a baby. But now a toddler and a preschooler, it’s harder to get them to sleep together in hotel rooms with us!

  • What’s the process of ordering/requesting to have a bassinet? Do you just call the airline directly or put that in the notes section when purchasing your tickets?

  • We are also a cross-continental couple (met in England, husband is a Brit, I’m American) and now we live in the US. No kids yet but we know that when they arrive, travelling to England will be a must (all the in-laws, family and friends will want a baby cuddle!) so your videos really help. How old was Olive on this flight?

  • I have a question regarding riding a cab when you travel. It’s great to have capsule infant car seat to carry around that can be strapped to an uber/taxi but that carseat only until 12month old baby. What about for toddler? How are they gonna sit in the taxi/uber during travel? Thank you

  • “Olivia’s destined to be a flight attendant.” Nooooooo! Why punish her like that?!:P
    j/k. Those were some of the best days of my life!
    Looks like you guys had a great experience. But if I know anything about flying stand-by, it’s that it is always that return flight that has all the problems! Let’s see if you can go 2 for 2!

  • She’s so adorable peacefully sleeping in the bassinet. Not bad at all for her first flight! I find that flying with a baby or toddler usually turns out to be easier than we expect. We shouldn’t all worry so much. ��Heidi

  • Our baby boy is due in August and I absolutely love watching your vlogs! Olive is a a complete dream baby! I am so happy for your little family!❤️

  • Milenaaaa I love you, so I will Say this as sweetly as I can: that is not your make up color! Try sth lighter ♥️ yout hair looks amazing, though!! I love your baby and thanks for your Work!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️

  • Kinda disappointed that there wasn’t a Bible verse and the cute intro song at the beginning �� Also, Tukkie Alethea is just the cutest and squishiest thing ever, omw����

  • You look better with lighter skin, didnt like your skin on the first part.
    Your baby is so sweet omg she didn’t even cry!! Like ever!! And how can you fly with her at 2 months old, no parent could do that because the baby is crying the whole time

  • I love your videos so much! I’m only 18 and won’t be having kids anytime soon but I will definitely use these tips for the future:) thanks for the insight

  • My staple is to ALWAYS wear my baby.. I have two strollers, so I bring my old one and carry my carry-on/diaper bag/purse in the stroller, and wear my baby. This is also super convenient in the plane because baby falls asleep and I can rest too knowing he won’t fall out of my arms. I’ve flown a few times by myself and this saved me!! You guys should try it!!

  • Why 300+ other people are required to put up with a crying baby or young child is beyond me on long haul flights. I have also no idea why parents would take a baby overseas in the first 18 months. I get the idea of family visits but not tourists, I see heaps of under 18 month olds on flights to Bangkok from Melbourne and Sydney and screaming for 8.5 hours in most cases. These people are selfish plain and simple, mummy has lost her marbles so daddy says lets go on a holiday and put everyone thru what we are going thru.

  • I love how much fun you all seem to be having making these videos. It’s definitely a different style, and it’s just great to see the growth!

  • Hello all! I have a prayer request, please. My husband and I are trying for a baby but no luck so far.. please pray that May is our month! ����

  • Talking about the heat and getting in the pool meanwhile us locals are rugged up and air one off �� Pilbara local here it’s cold to us

  • We don’t have to listen to this shit on flights. Its time the silent majority spoke up against these selfish people. I’ve got news for you we DO NOT have to listen to this on flights. Don’t sit anywhere near me. They should divert to the nearest airport and remove child and parents and bill them for costs incurred.


    Awesome accommodation in Nairobi close to the International airport JKIA.

  • he is so adorable, loved seeing his first flight! Our babies first flight was when we flew to Thailand and it was just me, Pete joined us out there! It was pretty crazy! you guys totally took this in your stride!

  • I can’t believe no one has to wear masks on the flight. It just feels like such a different reality to what is going on where I live.

  • Wow i wish I had these option for a baby when I first traveled with my 3 month baby to Portugal they had none of that they don’t keep the baby’s milk they don’t have bassinets NOTHING and it was very hard for me to go to the bathroom that small litlle bathroom even to get out of my seat… in the way back to USA was even harder they didn’t let me travel with my babies car seat like it was the worst thing ever

  • I love Hunter. Amazing babe, so talkative, and you guys seem to interpret everything perfectly. The 3 of you are so adorable. I can not believe you are ready for a trip, and Hunter looks so cute ready for the adventure. How come she is always smiling!!! I want one baby like yours!!!!����

  • I have a 1 year old now and yes I cannot agree any more help is key. Girlllll I did that ish on my own a few times. I also used those gate check in bags and had to do it on my own. I was sweating �� a tip for other mamas traveling alone baby wearing is the best!!

  • Oh em! You stayed at my work! Wish I would’ve known, would’ve sent you guys something in a non-weirdo kind of way lol Hope you enjoyed your stay:)

  • You have such natural beauty oh my goodness! You, your husband, and Alethea are the cutest little family and I literally cannot get enough of her little cheeks!! ����

  • We travel a ton with our 4 kids. Our youngest is still on a bottle. We actually take 4, 9oz bottles filled to the rim with almond milk. I do get stopped obviously for them to check it. But it’s always been so fast, I would say no more than about 4-6 minutes.

  • Just discovered your vlog…LOVE IT! When all of us here in the U.S. have to stay home, your adventures are a breath of fresh air!

  • Did she say baby was on her lap the whole time? I hope I heard wrong. Daddy has a perfectly good lap as well. I’m sure I just heard wrong. ����✈��

  • Although, I love the stroller. How do you bring his carseat in the airplane with you so he can sit in it? That was the one thing that was a negative for me in that type of stroller because I couldn’t manage everything and a car seat is so important on airplane.

  • We’re flying to Barcelona in 5 days with Air Portugal. They actually don’t allow you to sit your baby anywhere but in the window seat (if the baby is sitting in a car seat).

  • Milena makes me want to be a mom at 20:) urgh such a beautiful family..and baby toots is growing so fast…very beautiful as well Jordan is such a great guy…the way he holds his daughter..and giving kisses.. soo cute

  • Love the tips girl… thank you for sharing and I just recently travel with my then 10th month old baby now today he just turned 11 months ����☺️ how exited ❣️ but anyway I did had nightmares before and I was a bit panicking since he was the first one that I had traveled with really small out of my kid three kids lol long story short it went great a bit fuzziness bc he couldn’t sleep on the plane ✈️ I just wrapped him up with a blanket gave his bottle of milk and he went straight to sleep but other then that thank god my husband was with me and took turns carrying him…. ☺️ oh and plenty of new small dollar toys just for them to have every time they cry and some snacks…. just wanted to share my story.. if your traveling with your little one have a safe trip ����❤️ love all the way from Chicago ❣️

  • Ppl check their strollers because sometimes they make you fold them and put them through the X-ray scanner. With multiple kids that makes it a bit more difficult than having baby strapped to you. I like the pp pad trick though ��

  • Great adventure and back at my home all borders are open and why does australia not require for you all to wear a mask during airline travel and are they taking temperature before you board? Safe travels with the little one and let’s all pray that all countries can begin to open up for all to visit

  • I’m really glad it all went good, and OMG she’s so so so cute, and souch an AMAZING baby ❤ every time I watch your videos with her I want a baby too �� Oh, and please don’t take this as a critic, it’s just an advice, I don’t think it’s smart to put that cover on, because you can’t see her, you know, anything can happen. Specially when she gets a bit older and puts things in her mouth… So be careful!:)

  • I’m watching this even tho I don’t got a baby! Lol. Gotta rep Burque!!! Before you move please do a meet and greet here!! Some of us have bee following you since you moved from Florida!! I know I have!! Much love!! ❤️

  • He’s growing so fast!!!!! These are all great tips for traveling with a baby. You and Chris are looking gorgeous as always. Have a fabulous weekend ❤❤❤❤❤

  • What! I wish I thought of buying those ready to drink formula’s 3 years ago, when I flew with my 5 month old son from CA to HI. I had the hardest time ever! Especially through security check. I was flying alone, so I had to juggle a lot of things with my chunky baby in my arm. I will never forget that day. I’m just thankful that when I got on the plan it was a bit easy. I had a lot of help from people that sat around me. I road the Hawaiian airline, so I’m pretty sure it was the aloha in their hearts to help me out. ❤️

  • Both of you are simply fantastic with the time moving fast from delivery of baby girl to baby girl going on her first trip. Nearly screamed when I saw the quick progression of the blogs as the last I saw was when Jess was getting ready for the hospital stay.

  • Just reading the news about 2 year old refusing to wear a mask and being kicked off the plane and they don’t need to wear masks on an airplane? It’s like people living on a different planets.

  • Did you guys book all 3 seats so that you had a full row to yourselves? And also were you able to book the basinette seat ahead of time or did you request it at the airport?

  • Don’t sit next to me. Selfish and inconsiderate people think everybody else has to listen to their scrotes. Piss off and put a sock in it. I don’t need this on on a flight. Its time the silent majority spoke up against these selfish people who think the other fare paying passengers should have to listen to this. Get off.

  • I need to take my 18 days baby on 3 hours flight. I’m super stressed right now whether to take him or not. I can’t avoid this travel. Most difficult decision of my life.

  • I am glad that all went well! Wheren’y you afraid of the fact that someone of the other passanger could have been sick? the air circulation in plains is not the best..

  • Best option is not to take them on planes. Airlines should put them all together in the back of the plane like they used to do with smokers and let them annoy each other. Flights are expensive and the least I expect is to travel in comfort and peace and quiet. Its time the silent majority spoke up against these selfish and inconsiderate people.

  • Oh my gosh… I remember when I watched you video of you happily crying announcing your pregnancy and I cried with you because it gave me hope I could have a baby too… the following weeks went by and I found out I was pregnant… and just this week I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl… vibes are truly a blessing when a unique person like Yourself sends them out into the world! ❤❤❤

  • My baby boy is due in two months! Seeing your adorable daughter has me so excited to hold my baby ❤️
    Ps you look amazing with no makeup on ��

  • I want the airlines to give me the option if I want to be seated next to a baby or not. Personally, I don’t want to be anywhere near a baby for a 7 hour flight.

  • My wife and I have absolutely loved following your journeys. Being from Arkansas in the US, we are intrigued to know more about your hometown of Perth. Do you have a vlog about Perth as well? It seems like a neat place!

    Thanks for showing how a family can travel together with a newborn. Cheers!

  • Which airline did you fly with? I’m trying to fly to Paris with my baby and they are saying that I have to buy a full tip because the flight is international.

  • Hardly any useful tips on this video. You didn’t mention essentials you needed for the baby on the trip, nothing about how you got through security save for it being easy. Nothing about keeping baby calm in flight. Nothing about diaper changes on board…. basically NOTHING helpful ��. I’ll be travelling with a one month old and I’m a first time mom. I guess my anxiety is what is making me upset here, I’m sorry, but just prepare better next time so your viewers benefit from the content. When you say “tips ” we click coz that’s what we hope to get. There’s people who are not really out to get entertained by other people’s lives. We are just looking for useful information. Thanks.

  • I let my baby sleep during landing and he just woke up in a second cuz of his ears. I ended up trying to make him suck his milk but it failed. Hence, the 20 minutes screaming and crying. My son was 6 months old.

  • Thank u for posting as this really helped me travel long distance with my 4 month old, 8 year old, 9 year old, and lastly my 11 year old xx. I was super nervous as I was travelling to meet my husband who works abroad with our children. And I was super nervous but thankfully the experience was good and my baby son was amazing.. thanks alot. Xxxx

  • I’m traveling in 7 days with my 2 month old son so some of your tips were really good for me I appreciate that we have scheduled a flight that is at his nap time in the day he’s napping at 11 a.m. so we scheduled a flight for exactly that time I figured I’d get him settled before the plane boards with his bottle just as I do at home a fresh pamper and he should be probably sleeping for my whole duration of the flight hopefully

  • Thank you for this video! I will be flying from New Zealand to the Uk in December with a 6 week old. I will definitely take the sleepyhead pillow x

  • Awwww baby looks too cute��������. Hes being such a gd sport. The dress youre wearing when youre in the room it too cute. I don’t have kids but this was fascinating

  • I’m happy that you did this and had help on her first trip away. I have twin girls and I did alot of trip by myself. You will have plenty of first trials and errors. I always do check list just to make sure I have everything

  • I love this channel. If you all like this channel you might also like “Nicki Positano”. She lives on the Amalfi Coast in Positano and takes you around with her on all her excursions. She travels to Cobham England every now and then to visit her dad. Her husband Carlo is an amazing handyman who apparently can build and make anything. They garden and go hiking and kayaking with their beautiful daughter Skye who comes home to Positano from her boarding school in England whenever she can.

    Just thought I’d share her channel BECAUSE I recently recommended THIS CHANNEL to her and anyone else who reads the comment. ����

  • Hi Dad Verb,
    We are going holidays first time with our first baby girl. I am very much concern about her food. she is 4 months old now and by the time we fly she will be around 6months old. Can we take baby powder milk “Colic & Constipation” with us as i do not want this would be rejected at security point along with baby bottles. I even contacted Emirates airlines and I could not get a positive reply from them as airport security have different rules.:-(

  • She is such a good baby. I have a question for you since you are a recent mother and i am 30 weeks pregnant also with a girl. I want to ask you how did you overcome, if it happened to you, her moving while you were pregnant? was she very active? did you count kicks? did you get worried if she didn’t move much? Please let me know how your experience was on that. Thanks

  • I am 22 weeks pregnant and my due will be in may 25..I was planning to go on flight with my new born bby soon.. I wish it will be easy just like her hahahahaha lol ������

  • This video is to help and give advice about flying with a newborn baby but the top comments are about her appearance and skin tone SMH

  • I’ve been watching you forever and have never commented until now… Olive is SOOO cute!! I can’t believe how alert… Her tiny eyes were darting around like, “Where am I mom?” God bless you three. Love from California.. Oxx

  • I’m traveling with my 7 month old tonight and have been going through as many videos as I can before we leave (freaking out) This was definitely the most comforting video I’ve seen and I think I’m ready now lol. Thank you so much for this!

  • My wife and 3 month old son are flying to Europe tomorrow. Im trying to make it as easy for her as possible so Ive been watching some advice from others. Your video was super helpful, thanks for making it for us.

  • May i know what were those strollers you mentioned at 1:54-56? Kinda cool. We’re on the midst of trying to figure what’s best to buy for our baby. Thanks!

  • @elannapecherle This is totally random, but are the black shoes you wore on the plane from ‘Browns’ in Canada? I’m from Australia and bought those shoes while on holiday in Canada nearly 2 years ago now ��

  • Elanna your credit card was shown during this vlog. Just letting you know to take extra protective measure. Love you, baby Olive and Husband!
