Picture of the Week: Airline Baby Cot

Here's a picture of baby E at 6 months old sleeping in a British Airways Baby Bassinet. We're on our way to Paris, our first international trip with baby. E slept quite well in this cozy little box with the soothing hum of the airplane in the background.

The cot can be used only in a bulkhead row, and only once the flight is airborne. For older kids, the airline provides a seatlike contraption for baby to sleep in.

    We are flying to the US from Australia next week. The airline has issued us one of these cots for our daughter. She is about 75cm long. Do you think it will be big enough, or should be be prepared to bring something ourselves?
