Be prepared.

As mentioned in the Packing section, it's a good idea to bring a few extra snacks and drinks, even if you will be ordering children's meals for your kids. Even if you don't have delays, the kids might not be hungry when the airplane food is ready.

Light, healthy snacks are easy to pack.

Here are some suggestions for easy to prepare and easy to carry snacks:
  • Dry cereal (Cheerios)
  • Crackers, especially with interesting shapes (goldfish crackers)
  • peanut butter sandwiches
  • hard boiled egg (if you serve them early on in the trip)
  • vegetable slices
  • fruit
  • water/juice (with sippee cups!)
  • fruit roll-ups
We try for the most part to avoid sugar (well, during trips anyway ;-) ), especially chocolate which sends the girls through the roof!

Pack bottles carefully.

Watch out for full bottles, especially disposables. The pressure changes can lead to leaks! (Been there....)

It is possible to breastfeed on a plane, though I never managed to do both girls together. It's very hard to do discretely, however, if the babies are old enough to be distracted by the new sights and sounds.... When we used bottles, I took pre-measured servings of powdered formula and got water from the flight attendants.
