baby on a plane - tips for your first holiday with a baby

2/11 Purchase an extra aeroplane seat

Airlines are increasingly allowing families to purchase an ‘extra’ seat at reduced cost; a great option if your baby is under two years old. You can’t technically purchase a seat for an infant but if you buy an extra seat you have more space to spread out, making it easier for little ones to stretch out, stand up and nap. If you purchase a middle seat as your ‘extra’ it allows you privacy and peace of mind as you won’t have a stranger sat next to you. It also gives you an extra seatbelt - what baby doesn’t love playing with the open-shut buckle on an aeroplane belt?
