Flying with small children sparks anxiety in the most unflappable parent. Especially with the spate of superbugs lurking in the headrest, trays and seats. Call me paranoid but I adore (and collect) the spate of new germ warfare designed to keep one healthy at 32,000 feet. Flying with my asthmatic four year old next week, I am fully armed to protect my little nest in the sky from the big, bad superbug. Here are my favorite products:
