Travelling by plane has own challenges. Ask your child about potty and peeing before boarding. Also take some food along with yourself. Don’t forget to ‘gate checked’ if you have stroller or car seat. You can prevent pressure effect to your child while landing and take off by giving them to drink water or juice by straw or if older by giving some chewing gum.
