A MUM has revealed how she makes flying long-haul with her young child much easier than it otherwise could be with a few simple hacks.
Toddlers and flying are a dangerous mix, with neither the easiest thing to deal with at the best of times.
However, traveller Suslim Rai-Allen (@sueraiallen) has a few clever ideas that might help parents be better prepared for journeys with their little ones.
In a video on Tiktok, she shared her hacks to show other people how she makes flying with her 2-year-old much less stressful.
Firstly, she recommends booking a night flight, which should increase the chances of toddlers falling asleep.
When young children are awake, they can get bored very easily and a plane is no place for an irritable toddler.

Suslim's next tip is to bring pull up pants instead of nappies.
This is because the changing boards in plane toilets are often too small, which makes nappy changes even more complicated than normal.
Pull ups can help make the process easier that it would be if using normal nappies.
Another item the mum recommends packing is an inflatable travel foot rest.
