I want to tell you that it’s not easy to travel with a baby ,some of you know already or just planning to do it . But it’s all up to us , mommies , it’s so important how we carry it on and the most important from my experience is to be prepared . If you have everything with you that you might need at some point you will be just fine.
As soon as you decided to go somewhere and it’s time to book your tickets , make sure you have a seat with a bassinet in front of you , most of the airlines have it . Try to pick the right time to fly , I like to travel at night when he is sleeping and I can enjoy my movies , but I think it’s different for everybody, some moms like to fly during the day.
So when I travel with my baby boy I start packing my luggage in advance so I don’t forget anything, I still end up forgetting something , it drives me crazy because I used to be very organized but now I am packing two humans which is new to me .
Pack your tote , try to take a lot of diapers with you on board , changing clothes , make sure you have outfit for cold and hot temperature , baby body temperature is still adjusting so they get hot or cold very easily . Don’t forget his toys that he likes , he will feel comfortable with them in unfamiliar places and also bring his toys for sleeping . Make sure you have his water , his food or formula , have a small cooler bag to keep it cold ,you also can ask flight attendant to store it in a cold place for you . Also have something to suck on when you take off , to relieve air pressure , I still breastfeed so it’s really comfortable for us .
So plan well, pack well and your trip will be so much fun.
