The Ultimate Family Travel Hack: Mommy Unveils the VERY Smart Budget Trick She Uses to Make a Breeze with her Toddler on Every Airplane Trip
- A mother revealed how she made a cozy bed for her toddler while flying
- Her smart hack used a Kmart animal bed and an inflatable flying device
- Thanks to the cheap bed layout, her child could sleep during a long flight
A smart mother has revealed how she has created a simple sleeping solution for her toddler by hacking a pet bed from Kmart & # 39; and use an inflatable flying device.
The clever idea of Jaimie Anastas meant that her young child Mila could sleep comfortably during a nine-hour flight that the family recently took from Sydney to Doha.
Jaimie went to Facebook to take pictures of her baby comfortably in her & # 39; economy bed & # 39; share and described the result as a & # 39; total parent gain & # 39 ;.
& # 39; What do you get if you add Plane Pal (hidden under the pillow) and a $ 5 Kmart pet bed? You get a very happy baby! Total parent profit! & # 39; She wrote.
Total parent profit: this mother used a Kmart pet bed together with an inflatable pillow to create a bed for her young toddler
During deployment: the Plane Pal is located under the cushion supplied by the airline and at this stage the child does not yet have a seat belt

Plane Pal, the inflatable cushion used by the mother, acts as a kind of seat enlarger, a product that is especially useful for people traveling with small children.
The item, priced at $ 79.95 including a hand pump, weighs just over a kilogram and is neatly folded in its own carrying case.
Once on board, simply roll out the pillow, connect it to the pump and inflate it.
When it needs to be packed, the quick release valves can deflate in just four seconds.

The creator of the ingenious device is Sam Cardone, an Australian mother of three and self-proclaimed travel enthusiast.
She explained to her website, her business idea was fueled by finding an easy way to manage young children while flying.
& # 39; I was that mother rocking a screaming child desperately as she walked down the aisle, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; I have also been the mother stuck for 6 hours in a row among two sleeping toddlers, with dead legs and a desperate need to visit the bathroom. & # 39;

The solution, which also gives Sam his nomination as this year's Mumpreneur Awards, puts an end to the difficulty of trying to get children up in the air.
Information on the Plane Pal site states that the cushion is approved for use with more than 40 airlines, including Virgin Australia.
There are some limitations because it cannot be used when the seat belts are turned off (not during takeoff or landing).
In addition, Plane Pal recommends always wearing seat belts in the event of unexpected turbulence.
