Flying with a baby can be stressful for most parents. But you might want to take a vacation or visit a family on the other side of the world.
According to our experience, the younger baby = easier manageable/portable baby.
On our last trip to Asia we flu with 1.5 years old one.
We booked our tickets on https://www.qatarairways.com and the route was Belgrade-Doha-Denpasar.
Long layover in Doha was a good excuse to stay one night in the city and use that time to explore a bit.
When you fly with Qatar Airways and your layover is longer than 8 hours you could be eligible to get a complimentary stay in a luxury hotel.
Hamad International Airport is located only 13km from the city and we needed less than 20min to reach our hotel. The next morning we continued traveling fresh and rested. The baby had a good night sleep and was in a good mood.
The crew in the plane loved her. She got toys, baby food and a vanity bag with useful baby items. Qatar offers a bassinet and assigns you for to one after booking your infant. We even didn’t need to call and request it.
15 hours later we were on our final destination, ready for a vacation!
So is it harder to travel with a baby?
Yes, it is!
But it is not impossible.
With good planning, the right mindset, and nice service of the airline crew, it’s getting easier every time…
Or I just hope so:)
