Flying with a small child is hard, but it does not have to feel impossible, said the writers at Jaunted (8.20.13). Inspired by the Condé Nast Traveler Network website, here are some tips from Taggies™ for soothing and entertaining a baby while travelling.

1. Bring everything -- and then some. Pack everything that is needed and then a little bit more, including food, snacks, toys and diapers. It’s important to be prepared for delayed flights. To lighten the load, take along products with dual purpose, like a Taggies plush blanket. A Taggies blanket has many brightly colored tags around its border that provide visual and tactile entertainment value. The blanket can also be used as a warm and comforting lovie.

2. Charge batteries before the flight: If an iPad, smartphone or portable DVD player is what keeps baby happy and entertained during the flight, make sure all batteries are charged to their full capacity before getting on the plane. If the batteries do die, have a Taggies plush friend waiting in the reserves. These snuggle partners feature many colorful tags. Babies and kids enjoy rubbing the edges of the satin ones, as well as the other tags inspired by the clothing labels children love to touch.

3. Offer food or drink on takeoff and landing: Breastfeed, offer a bottle of milk/formula or a sippy cup of another liquid. The swallowing helps ears adjust to the plane pressure and helps prevent that uncomfortable ear popping. Also offer liquids if changes in air pressure are detected during the flight.

Taggies is famous for decorating its apparel, toys and accessories with colorful mesmerizing tags that provide tactile stimulation to babies when rubbed. The brand is part of the Kids II brand family. Kids II designs, markets and distributes more than 400 unique baby and infant products, including products for some of the industry's most well-known brands, including Bright Starts™, Ingenuity™, Comfort & Harmony™, Disney Baby™, Baby Einstein™, Oball™ and Taggies™.
