If you’re a parent, you know how difficult it can be to deal with a screaming baby on a plane. It’s even more difficult when you’re trying to keep your cool while other passengers give you dirty looks. But there are a few things you can do to help calm your baby and make the flight more bearable for everyone.
First, try to keep your baby’s schedule as close to normal as possible. If your baby is used to napping at a certain time, try to stick to that schedule. If you’re feeding your baby on a regular schedule, try to do that as well. This will help your baby feel more comfortable and less stressed.
If your baby starts to cry, there are a few things you can do to try to calm him or her down. You can try rocking your baby or walking up and down the aisle. You can also try offering a pacifier or a toy. If all else fails, you can ask a flight attendant for help.
If your baby is really upset, you may need to change his or her diaper. If you can, try to do this in the restroom. If you can’t, ask a flight attendant for assistance.
Remember, it’s important to stay calm yourself. If you’re feeling frazzled, your baby will pick up on that and it will only make the situation worse. So take a deep breath and remember that this is only temporary. Soon, you’ll be back on the ground and your baby will be back to his or her happy self.
