As a parent of 2 children (7 yo & 4 yo), I’m always looking for ways to improve our travel experience, especially when flying. If you don’t come prepared on the plane, it can make for a LONG flight. I have learned a few hard lessons along the way (e.g. my son not making it to the toilet mid flight), so why not learn from my mistakes! LOL! Here is a list of items I pack in my carry-on luggage to help improve any child disaster that is thrown at me.
