Flying with Children

* flights.idealo.co.uk There are a few simple things one can do to make flying with children a relaxed and pleasant experience. For starters wet-wipes, some zip-lock bags and spare outfits for the little one as well as for oneself are always a good idea. Chewing-gum helps to ameliorate the ear pressure experienced during take-off and landing while an iPad or toys can make time zip by.
