Using a cover for a flight
Using a cover on a flight can help block out light resulting in better sleep for your baby or toddler. You’ll find that it’s very easy to use a cover when you have a baby in a carseat, but is it possible to use a cover for a lap child? The answer is YES! Check out the video below to learn how!

Pro-Tips to help your baby sleep on your next flight!
After 45 flights during Briggs’ first year, we’ve learned quite a bit from trial and error about sleeping on a plane! ✈️ Check out some of my tips below!
- Up until about 4 months, Briggs had no problem sleeping on the plane. He was still in that sleepy newborn stage and could basically sleep through anything.
- After 4 months, was when he was much more aware and sensitive to noise. This is when I would recommend to start bringing headphones and/or a portable sound machine to help drown out noises.
- Briggs sleeps best when he’s in his car seat. This is also the safest option. However, I understand that this is not always possible for families.
- If you have a lap infant, be sure to bring the items mentioned above along with their fav blanket and a cover to block out light.
- If you have a carrier, you can put baby in that besides during takeoff and landing for naps.
- Do not stretch your baby to the point of being overtired in hopes that they will sleep better on the flight. A well rested baby that doesn’t sleep on the flight is much better than an overtired baby who then can’t fall asleep on the plane.

Random things that wake my baby on the flight
You can do your very best to create an ideal sleep environment for your baby but sometimes, random noise can wake them up! Briggs was very sensitive to random noise on the flight from about 5 months until 12 months. After that, he was able to sleep through a lot more. Two things that can really help cut down on noise is a great portable sound machine and baby earmuffs!
