So I'm flying alone with Betty in a couple months, just wondering if anyone has any tips?
Its a short flight, an hour and a half, but you know whats flying is like, that really means 5 hours of go go go, from home to airport, check in, through security, waiting to board, Boarding, actual flight (starting to sound like the easiest part, except for the ear popping issue, diaper changes, feedings (I bottle feed to top it all off), just plain old grumpiness) then getting off and getting off last, then meeting up with my ride, driving to the place I'm going, then settling in.
I'm tired just thinking about it. If I can make this any easier on myself, that would be AWESOME.
I would def bring a stroller, having mine helped soooo much instead of trying to carry kids and hold hands and keep up with bags, that way I could put my carry ons in the basket under the stroller and they sat in there, just made things sooo much easier. And you can take it right to the gate, they will put it on the plane and have it waiting for you when you get off. Also feeding, or give a pacifier during take off and landing, helps with their ears. I would bring a couple of new toys that she has never seen so it will interest her. If by then she is on solids and having snacks I would bring a variety of snacks for her too. It really wasn't as bad as it seems, I flew by myself with all 3 boys when Hayden was about 4mo, Casen almost 3 and Landon almost 5...it actually wasn't bad at all, a bit hectic but that's it
Lol yeah it wasn't that bad. When I was getting on the plane I remember these 2 ladies that sat across the aisle from us giving me drrty looks like they were mad they were going to be stuck by some crazy kids o something. And when we got off they actually stopped me and said how well behaved they were, made me feel pretty good haha. I think it's being somewhere new, even as babies it's tons of new things to look at, plus it's kinda boring at the same time so time to sleep haha
