Fly Beds


Anyone who has flown on an airplane knows exactly how hard it is to get comfortable enough to fall asleep. Add an overnight flight and young kids to the mix, and suddenly climbing Mount Everest feels like it would be easier. But the experience doesn’t have to become a nightmare at an altitude of 30,000 feet. There are products that will actually let your kids sleep peacefully (and hopefully you in return). We have reviewed some of the most popular fly beds on the market so you can find the one that will work best for you and your kids!

Expert Advice on Finding the Best Fly Bed

Do you have a long-haul flight coming up soon? Or a red-eye that conflicts with your toddler’s routine? While it’s not quite their cozy, familiar bed at home, a fly bed on an airplane could be the next best thing.

Flying is unpredictable. You can’t always assume that the middle seat will be open for your kids to stretch out, or even that their seats will recline. Having something easy to set up that gives them an area to rest makes the difference between arriving well-rested, or walking off the plane like a zombie. (We’ve been there and know that feeling all too well)!

Fly beds fall into several different categories. Inflatable options include the Fly Tot and Plane Pal. Some double as small suitcases, such as the JetKids BedBox. There are options for younger kids such as the DockaTot (aka Sleepyhead outside of the US) or the Sky Baby. Most importantly, check that your airline will allow these products on the flight before purchasing any of them. There are a few airlines that have banned their use. However, most are willing to have them on board. If you find that your airline will accept them, we highly recommend looking into one of these fly beds. You won’t regret it!
