A quick follow-up from the 15 Tips for Flying with Babies post.  Reader Meagan left the following comment:

I’ve got a five hour flight with a 7 month old coming up in January. NOT looking forward to it. I’m planning to buy some baby headphones for him (I’ve seen some that size down to a year, and he’s big) and will have either a DROID tablet or an ipad. My biggest worry is changing a diaper during the long flight, and using the restroom myself. Seriously… how? Did I mention I’m flying ALONE?

So leave it to YouTube to have a brilliant video on the various options for what to do when you need to change a diaper in an airplane. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQzNJwmFsKo[/youtube]
An overview of your options:

  • On an empty seat
  • In the airplane lavatory
  • In the aisle
  • On your lap

With the babies we have flown with – we’ve only had to change 1 diaper mid-air flight. We did it in the seat on my lap. Not something that I care to do again, but if you have to – you have to!

Happy Flying!
