Friends, Family & Followers:
In the next 2 months, I/we will be flying with little Miss Abigail 3 times. And I'm not talking a quick 1 hour flight down to LA...I'm talking cross country trips.
In less than 2 weeks, we'll be on our way to Washington DC (YAY for Alice's Wedding!!!)...the following week, we'll be off to Atlanta to visit Abigail's Aunt and Uncle...and then less than a month after that, we'll be heading back to Atlanta for another summer vacation...
That being said, I need HELP!
I have so many questions about flying with a baby...we can't pack her up like we did for our first family road trip*...
And while I've perfected the cross-town trip to see KiKi (stroller for a walk on the pavement...baby bjorn for the walk in the woods...excessive amounts of laundry so we don't have to use quarters at our apartment...diaper bag...etc), I'm a little nervous about the cross-country flight.
- What is absolutely essential (beyond clothes, diapers and wipes)?
- Would it be a terrible idea to leave our stroller behind or will our baby bjorn suffice?
- Do we check the car seat and carry her on?
- What other general tips/suggestions do you have from your experiences?
These may be terribly dumb questions that even I will look back on and say "really!?! You couldn't figure it out on your own?" but I have this feeling I'm not the only person who will benefit from some advice.
Thanks in advance!
Oh, and like my post on Stretch Marks, I promise to summarize all your tips in a (hopefully) helpful future post. Who knows, maybe I'll even have a few tips of my own after all these trips!
*remember...that was a joke for anyone out there who takes things too literally...
