first_img1. Orang tua membuat anak senyaman mungkinDalam penerbangan, menggunakan pesawat, apalagi untuk pertama kalinya seorang anak dibawa bepergian. Baiknya jaga anak Anda dan buat senyaman mungkin. “Penumpang lain bisa saja menjadi mimipi buruk jika anak-anak Anda mulai bertingkah laku. Saya selalu mengatakan kepada penumpang dengan anak-anak bila mereka menangis atau berteriak saat melihat orang lain. Katakan mereka sama dengan Anda jadi jangan khawatir,” ujar Eroglu.Okezone.com2. Rencanakan sebaik mungkinSebelum bepergian, baiknya lengkapi kebutuhan anak-anak Anda dari popok, susu hingga apapun itu. Sebab, tidak semua maskapai melengkapi kebutuhan anak-anak di dalam pesawat. Kalaupun Anda, kemungkinan tak banyak hanya susu dan popok.3. Tidak semua suka makanan maskapai penerbanganOrang tua pastinya berpikir semua anak pastinya akan makan segalanya di pesawat. Padahal, hal tersebut belum tentu terjadi. Sebab anak-anak pastinya lebih banyak bermain dari pada makan dan orang tua justru yang kelaparan karena memikirkan anak-anak.Baca juga: Ternyata, Sabuk Pengaman Lindungi Anda dari Lima Arah“Saya menyarankan, bila maskapai membuka pemesanan makanan sebelum Anda berangkat, baiknya pesan makanan untuk anak-anak sekaligus makanan ringannya. Tak lupa juga, persiapkan makanan cemilan untuk anak Anda bila perjalanan lebih lama. Anda juga bisa meminta tolong pada awak kabin untuk memanaskan botol susu anak,” ujarnya.4. Bersahabat dengan awak kabinBila Anda bepergian sendiri dan membawa bayi bersama Anda, baiknya minta bantuan awak kabin untuk memudahkan aktivitas Anda.

We have to do the job on Tuesday night and put pressure on Derby and Middlesbrough.”There isn’t much to change about City’s way of playing, the assistant head coach explained, but it is in the final third where they need to be more clinical as the Robins look to keep the pressure on other teams around them.McAllister continued: “If we put in the performance as we did on Saturday we will definitely get our rewards over the next two games. The focus is on Millwall, which is a tough game. They are safe now but if we play as we did on Saturday and get that final execution, the goals we need to win the game, we will be in a good place going into the final days of the season.”“You can only keep creating the chances and it will eventually happen. The lads have been outstanding, it was a great performance on such a big occasion. The fans were excellent on Saturday and it was so hard to take…We go into Tuesday with a positive mindset and we have to do our job to keep the pressure on. If we win on Tuesday night, then it is all to play for in the last game.”Back City on the roadlast_img read more
