Travelling with the Kids

With Sainsbury's Bank

Summer is officially upon us, with many families looking to take their little ones abroad for the first time. While the holiday itself is a great opportunity to spend quality time together as a family, the process of actually getting there can be quite daunting - Am I limited to 100ml of
expressed milk or formula on board? How many nappies should I pack?


If this sounds like you, it’s key to plan for all eventualities. For example, it's a good idea to bring one nappy for each hour that you're travelling, plus extra for delays. Also, packing a blanket will help comfort your little one, especially if it's cold on the plane. If your child is slightly older, you might want to pass the time by introducing them to the language and culture of your destination. You can do this by using an offline app on a tablet or buying a book to distract them during the
flight.


Finally, remember that most travellers around you will be sympathetic towards any upsets and will be impressed if you’ve brought a variety of distractions to ease the situation. To give you a more detailed rundown of what you should pack in your hand luggage, how to deal with travel-
related issues, and how to keep children of all ages entertained on board, take a look at the fun animated guide below by Sainsbury’s Bank.

Happy Flying!
