FIRST FLIGHT WITH BABY LUCA

August 3, 2017

Heey, I have a little bit of time for a quick post about baby Luca’s first flight. We planned a holiday week to Timisoara to visit a friend and we though it would be a good idea to travel by plane. We didn’t want to take him on a 2h first flight and the flight to Timisoara was just perfect, because it’s very short.

I read many tips & tricks about the activities we should have to make him enjoy the flight. I had toys, water, biscuits and his favourite Usborne books in his bag. I even took a fruit puree just in case he’s hungry but it wasn’t necessary because I breastfed him during the flight.

Let me tell you how it went. The departure flight was at 1:00 pm, so we left for the airport at 10:00 am. He slept in the car, so we checked the morning nap. He slept while we left the luggage and he was very happy until we got on the plane.

We had the big surprise to see that he was very interested in a magazine from the plane. Anyway we had a few toys nearby just in case he’s bored. They were unnecessary because he played with that magazine almost until landing. He was a bit upset during the landing, but it was understandable because he was already tired. He took a short nap and recovered his sleep hours as soon as we got to our friend’s house.

The return flight was a bit different, because it was in the evening. And the Timisoara airport is poorly organised. We bearly got some answers about our flight and it took a while until someone took us in a less crowded waiting room. In the end everything turned out ok but Luca was a bit fussy and it was a bit difficult for me to comfort him. He was even entertained for a few minutes by a lady that had the seat behind us.

A few things you should consider:

  • Babies have priority. Everytime someone  from the staff called us in front of the row when they saw us.
  • You can take the stroller to the plane door. But first check with the airline company, the rules might be different.
  • To protect the stroller we bought a protection bag. You can find ours at Bebe Tei, it’s universal and accesible.
  • After we landed we waited for all the passengers to get out of the plane to avoid the crowd. Many are in a hurry and don’t pay attention around them.
  • Be prepared for a loong luggage wait. We waited for ours more than the Timisoara-Bucharest flight lasted.

Anyhow, I think traveling by plane it’s less consuming for the baby and quicker considering our country’s roads :)

I leave you with a few photos, Luca enjoyed the city and even the weekend spent at Cazanele Duncarii.
