Moving through airports with young children can be stressful, especially when a baby’s light cry turns into a full-on scream. That’s why most parents will do their best to prepare for the trip beforehand to make things as easy as possible. Whether it’s packing an extra drink or a child’s favourite toy, every precaution can help ease a difficult scenario. However, when Heather Jones flew with her baby daughter for the first time she wasn’t prepared for the treatment she’d receive.
Now Heather, from Colorado, believed she had prepared thoroughly for her first flight with her newborn daughter, Amelia. And she was aware of how tricky getting through security might be, with strict rules applying for hand luggage. So the new mom, who was taking a flight from Denver to Los Angeles, did some research beforehand.
