Hi there,

We travelled to Venice (only an hour and a half flight but I think the regulations would be the same anyway) when Jessica was 5 months old and we went with Easyjet- they were pretty good.

What requirements do you mean?

As for safety, they'll give you a baby belt that attaches to yours for take-off and landing.

With the feeds, you can take them with you but they have to taste the milk when you go thru- I'm nursing anyway so didn't have that issue but I read up on it for Jess' jar foods which again you can bring with you but they have to taste if opened before you get to the departure lounge.

Hope I've helped you in some way?

Hi,

You can ask the aircraft (when you book) for a baby 'bed' or 'cradle' they'll give you the place at the front, where there's room for that. Obviously, it's first come first served when flight is booked.
as for liquid milk etc; you can usually buy from boots once pas security. Yuo can call them to check what they sell.
You can take a minimum amount with you, but they'll get you to taste it. So you're best taking powder milk, and can obviously buy bottled water once through security.
You can take your pushchair or baby car seat with you.

have a good trip!

Just got back from France and took our little man who is 4 mths old. Flight was great, gave him a bottle on take off and landing just to ensure he was preoccupied and he slept during the middle part of the flight. Took his car seat and wheels with us which went through the scanner and the flight staff then took everything as we were about to board the plane. I ordered his baby milk from boots a week before to pick up after security, but on our return took the milk powder as well just in case I couldn't get the carton milk through security but they didn't want me to test it!! Thumbs Up . Hope this helps but everyone was really helpful and went out of their way to help so don't worry. I was surprised how easy it was!

For many parents flying with babies is quite challenging. One should consider some things while flying with babies like diapers, wet issues, clothes, New and exciting toys, Bibs to protect the clothes,Favorite toy or teddy bear and cloth diapers.
