Tomorrow, my Lost Readers, I embark on my first travel venture with my 15-month old son. I AM STRESSING, y’all! I tell people that my son has hit the terrible twos early… so you can imagine my anxiety of flying with my baby for the first time.
We are headed to Mexico City so his paternal abuelos can meet him for the first time! While I am excited for everyone to finally meet face-to-face (they have an ongoing FaceTime relationship so far), I mentally can’t get past the airport and flight! I’ve read article after article about flying with an infant; I purchased flights that coincide with his sleep schedule, am packing a surplus of snacks, and even bought new toys to keep him entertained on the plane… but I dread an airport or on-board meltdown!
Any tips on keeping baby calm and maybe even helping him to sleep on the plane?
