Most airlines have made it clear to travellers that they are very accepting of breastfeeding moms and thatbreastfeeding on one of their planes is allowed (though we always suggest that you explore a specific airline’s breastfeeding policy first). However, the policy is not usually what troubles moms the most. The real problem is being able to breastfeed in a confined area where they may have little space apart from their seat and the small amount of leg room in front of them.
Your quarters may be a bit more cramped than if you were to feed at home or in the airport, butbreastfeeding comfortably during a flight is possible.
We know, yet another thing to bring on board. But if you are going for a long flight, a breastfeeding pillow will allow your baby to:
Your baby may be happy using an airplane neck pillow. Test it out a few times at home though, to be sure that he will be happy using it.
If you are going on an overnight flight, bring a ring sling with you (although small babies who are not fussy may sleep in the bassinet provided by the airline). The ring sling will help you keep your larger baby sleeping, meaning you may be able to sneak in a bit of a nap as well.
You may be saving room in the nappy bag because you do not need to pack bottles, but that space will be well used. Some of the essentials you should bring includes:
Dress babies in clothing without elastic waistbands and dress yourself in yoga pants or, if you have recently given birth, a pair of Peachymamahigh-waisted pants (our pants are designed to not rub against or irritate any tender areas).
