"Gallskrik, despite, changing diapers and lots of spring in his legs. night flying with children can be a nightmare when everything goes wrong.nMen with the proper preparation you can manage the hours on board without problems. nResvana Maya Jacobsson gives you a ”flygmammas” best travel tips. "
"Céline was three months old when she flew for the first time. When crossed she the Atlantic ocean together with her mother Maya Jacobsson and since then, Céline who had become four years and even her little sister Olivia Jane, who is three, has become the habit of air travellers. "
" the Children do an average of ten to twelve flights per year. In our family I live with my husband on either side of the Atlantic. Grandma and grandpa live far away in the Caribbean. All in all, this has resulted in a lot of travel for everyone involved in our small business ”Family LTD”, says Maya Jacobsson. "
"Eight hours on the flight."
"To travel between Stockholm and New York takes about eight hours. Since Maya and the children often fly themselves so Maya has created clear procedures for travel, for everything to run so smoothly as possible. She searches not only after the best price when she's looking ticket, but also after best's departure. A nattflight can at best guarantee utsövda and energetic children when they arrive to the destination. "
"For the Maya start the journey in the same moment that she must give up the stroller at the airport. "
"– All airports work differently. At Arlanda airport, must all strollers be left at check-in time. Lånevagnar offered, but for the very smallest does not work the airport's buggy without the back and headrests. My solution is a baby carrier when the children are small, " says Maya. "
"A checked stroller means that a parent is vagnlös right up to the baggage claim area, but some airlines offer' deliver at the gate” and then you get to the cart when you get off the plane. "
"Maya is packing all liquid products such as klämmisar in a zip-lockpåse that can easily be pulled up and put on the band at the security checkpoint. "
"To sit still for eight hours is impossible for most children in the age of three. Maya looks to have some toys in the bag. "
"– Once we are in the air, the children receive a new little toy. But there are no loose parts that can fall under the seat and roll it ten seats away. It need not be anything expensive, personally I have taken the inspiration of the tågleksaker given by SJ in the 80's. They also get a coloring book and a flerfärgspenna which is better than a box of crayons that can easily be dropped and roll away. "
"When they get to entertain themselves with toys and pens, they may see a film on the toad. "
"When the girls were still small and had diapers arranged Maya a quick diaper change in the flygplansstolen if it was just a kissblöja. A engångsunderlag protected the chair. When they became a little older, they could use a little potty, Oxo Potty, Maya is bought in the united states. It is a minitoalett that secures a engångspåse in. It is possible to trap up directly in the flygplanssätet and the bag with the kiss then linked together and are thrown away. Oxo Potty can also be put on flygplanstoalettens and the room's seat so that the kids can sit safely and steadily. "
"Matfavoriter for the smallest"
"It's not always that flygplansmaten works for small children who are picky. Maya always takes with itself the cold pancakes or sausage and macaroni in a jar. And our backup plan is going is pulvergröt both on board the plane and arrive at the destination."
"– We are travelling very often to the grandmother and the grandfather in the Caribbean. It is an amazing place, but the food fairs a little tricky for our children. After a full day at the beach, it is not always exciting, with a steady goal of exotic food. Pasta is of course a winner in all modes, but in order to be sure that the children get what they need, I have always with me a whole pack pulvergröt that I can eke out with when the appetite runs out before the other options, " says Maya. "
"to be sure that kids drink enough in the heat, serving her a bottle with powdered milk before middagsluren and at nattning. "
