We are taking our first flight with Simon this week, headed to San Antonio, Texas to see my family. I am feeling a little bit nervous about flying with an infant for the first time – any tips?
It feels like there is SO much stuff to bring and much more to worry about than my normal rush through the airport.
I’ve heard that it’s good to feed babies during take-off and landing because of their ears… what else do I need to know / think about?
Maybe Simon will decide that the plane ride is a good time to take a 2 hour nap?…
I am trying not to take his entire room with us, but I also want to be prepared. We are visiting my parents, so it’s not like I can’t get whatever I forget, but I would like to ensure that I have the necessities.
Grammy is buying the diapers and wipes and I am bringing myself – aka the food… so… I guess the true necessities are taken care of…
How about sleeping in a travel crib for more than just a couple of naps (which we have done at home). Any advice for making the transition from crib at home to travel crib for an entire weekend work?
See the nerves here? Just when I think we are starting to have a routine down at home we are taking a trip just to screw it all up :).
I am hoping that Simon is a total trooper and isn’t phased one bit by traveling because I want there to be a lot more plane rides in our future.
Travel tips most certainly welcome.
