11 Tips For Surviving a 9 Hour Flight with a Toddler

Here is a video showing our tips for surviving a long international flight to Australia with our 14 month old baby. I have written “9 hour flight”, but it was actually longer as we went via Seoul on Korean Airlines. From the time of leaving our apartment to arriving in Melbourne, including traveling time to the airport and in transit, it actually took 24 hours! Hope these tips help with your own travels with your toddler!

By the way, Korean Airlines was fantastic! Very baby-friendly and all the flight attendants were so helpful and welcoming. Seoul International Airport also has a great kids playground with slippery slides and everything – perfect for your baby to have some fun while in transit or waiting for you plane.

    "don't worry if your baby makes noise"
    look that's just not right. kids need to be punished if they can't be quiet.
    tired of parents ignoring their kids whining because they don't want to punish them and the rest of the people have to listen to it. just because you are fine with it doesn't mean others are.

    I am taking my son to Japan from Texas in a couple of months and he will be just 13 months. He is a big baby but it was helpful to see what you guys did! Thanks for this video! Also, did you guys bring a car seat? or just used the bassinet for his sleep?

    We are going on a 9 hour flight with our 10 month old in a few weeks so am researching! I laughed at the bassinet picture very cute!! I am a super nervous flyer and usually take something for it but because im nursing I cant so I am hoping I will be to busy with the baby to worry about things!! Great video :)

    If you are to re-shoot it at some point you may wish to use the Plane Lazy

    9 hours ? ? ?  Nah ! thats nothing,  Take some Los Angeles – Frankfurt and without getting crazy.

  15. Brenda Morales

    Did you get baby his own seat? I'm wondering if this is almost necessary.. I'm going to Korea with a 15 month old then. Thanks.

    I will also take some sucking candies like lollipops so mine can suck on something while taking off and landing to keep pressure off his ears!

    Speaking of running/walking around the plane is not always permitted by flight attendant. On our last flight to/from Dominican Republic when my toddler was walking/running all over the plane the flight attendant asked us NOT to come to busness/first class! Just because we flew in economy class. So, I have to force my small child  to sit still all flight? Come on,its not realistic!
