Some Tips When Traveling With Children
Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010
Tips before you reach the airport
* Please allow yourself and your family extra time to get through security - especially when traveling with younger children. Allow even additional time if you are traveling overseas.
Tips at the airport
* Speak to your children again about the screening process so that they will not be frightened or surprised. Remind them not to joke about threats such as bombs or explosives.
Tips on the plane
* Have some gum or a pacifier for an infant. Chewing the gum or sucking on the pacifier will help with ears popping during take off and landing. If your child is old enough, explain what air pressure is.
Baby formula, breast milk, juice, and other liquids
Medications, baby formula and food, breast milk, and juice are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding three ounces and are not required to be in the zip-top bag. Declare these items for inspection at the checkpoint.
All items including formula, breast milk, and juice will be inspected, however, you or your baby or toddler will not be asked to test or taste breast milk, formula, or juice. Our Security Officers may test liquid exemptions (exempt items more than 3 ounces) for explosives.
Travel rules can change so make sure that you check the TSA web site before you fly. If you and your family abide by the rules, your trip will go a lot smoother.
