What to pack for a long-haul flight

Whether you have never flown before or on your 500th flight, packing right can make your flight far more bearable. Of course, what you bring depends entirely on the length of the flight and your child’s age.

The JetKids BedBox and Crew BackPack are specifically designed for traveling with toddlers on short or long-haul flights, offering storage and comfort features. Here’s a list of items you can pack in the JetKids BedBox and Crew BackPack.

In the BedBox:

  1. Bedding: Include a soft blanket or travel-sized quilt like the Merino Wool Blanket to provide extra comfort and warmth for your toddler while they sleep or rest in the BedBox.

  2. Pillow: Pack a small, compact pillow suitable for your toddler’s age and size. It will help them sleep more comfortably during the flight.

  3. Stuffed Animal or Comfort Item: If your toddler has a favorite stuffed animal or comfort item, include it in the BedBox. Familiar objects can help them feel more secure and at ease during the journey.

  4. Snacks and Drinks: Fill a small container with their favorite snacks and pack a spill-proof water bottle or sippy cup for hydration. Choose snacks that are not messy and won’t create crumbs.

  5. Entertainment: Include lightweight and compact toys, coloring books, stickers, or small games to entertain your toddler during the flight. Choose items that can be easily stored in the BedBox when not in use.

  6. Extra Clothing: Pack an extra set of comfortable clothes, including layers, in case of spills or accidents. It’s also a good idea to have socks and a light jacket or sweater in case the cabin gets cold.

  7. Diapers and Changing Supplies: If your toddler is still in diapers, make sure to pack enough for the duration of the flight. Include wipes, diaper rash cream, and disposable bags for easy disposal.

  8. Medications: If your toddler requires any medications, keep them easily accessible in a separate pouch within the BedBox lid compartment. Be sure to carry them in their original containers and bring any necessary documentation.
