Product Review: 1st Class Kid Travel Pillow
Every travelling parent knows all too well about the trials and tribulations of flying long-haul with kids. In our article Ten Tips for surviving your First Flight with a Baby, we recommend booking an overnight flight to encourage your baby to sleep most of the hours in the air.
This is still true as your kids get older, but with bigger kids no longer able to fit into a bassinet, this inevitably means they end up stretching out all over mum and dad, who consequently get no sleep at all!
I was therefore very excited to recently discover and test-drive a new product on the market – the 1st Class Kid Travel Pillow – an inflatable pillow that fills the legroom gap on the airplane, effectively turning your child’s economy seat into a flatbed.

All About the 1st Class Kid Travel Pillow
We recently got back to Singapore after spending a lovely month in the UK visiting family and friends. I was dreading the journey with a 16/17 month old, but it was fine in the end and one thing which really helped was this handy pillow. We got lots of comments and questions about it from other interested parents (and cabin crew who had never seen it before), so I thought I’d do a short write up of it for anyone who is interested.
1st Class Kid Travel Pillow measures 18” x 12” x 18” and can be inflated using the plane’s air vents or simply by blowing it up.

Travelling With a Child - The Essentials
Close your eyes and think about flying alone; the ease of it all. All you need is yourself and your luggage. You may not even need to check in a bag; a backpack or carry on may do the trick. Now, think about flying with a child/ren. Imagine all the things you will need, stroller, car seat, carrier etc. Flying with a child requires a lot more preparation. I have tried several different things, and can confidently make the recommendations below...
We used the Leg Rest Travel Pillow on our most recent vacation to SE Asia and it was a blessing. We flew for about 13hrs one way to Beijing, and Aiden slept 85% of the flight. He slept well, and he slept comfortably. It is also very easy to blow up and folds flat when the air. Aiden carried it in his backpack and my husband blew it up once we were in the air and Aiden was able to lay on it as soon as the seat belt sign was off.

Upgrade your little ones seat, so that they may travel in a little more luxury at very little extra cost!
Travelling long haul with small kids can be daunting. The last time we flew long haul we only had the two little ones and it was nothing short of awful…my cuddly 8 month old baby was too big for the cots, so could only sleep in our arms whilst our 2 year old kept sliding onto the floor to fall asleep only to be woken abruptly every time by the flight attendant who insisted be sat back up in his chair causing him great upset as the poor little guy just wanted to lay down but I already had a sleeping baby in my lap and there was nowhere else for the poor little guy to go and certainly no way that Mum would get even a glimmer of rest…needless to say the journey was quite painful.
Thankfully just before we were due to fly I discovered 1st class kid travel pillows – an inflatable pillow that fills that foot well in front of the seat on an airplane, creating more room for a child to spread out, rest their legs or curl up for a snooze.

1st Class Kid: This amazing contraption turns your airplane's economy seat into a first-class seat.
The 1st Class Kid inflatable travel-pillow was created by a New Zealand Mom who is now living in Las Vegas. The travel pillow inflates by using your own air (mouth), or the airplane's forced overhead-air after take-off, allowing you and your child to stretch out your legs, relax, and hopefully fall asleep. The 1st Class Kid deflates to a small square that can easily fit in your carry-on luggage (we fit two in our carry-on bag very easily). Parents can fly "stress-free" knowing their children are buckled safely in their seatbelts, while sitting comfortably on the airplane.
