In a few weeks, we’ll be flying with our baby for the first time on a 6 hour international flight! Pretty excited, but also nervous cause I’ll be headed to the airport and going through security by myself (meeting my husband at the gate cause he’s coming in from another flight). So, of course, I have a bunch of questions that hopefully you wonderful mothers can help me with! 1. My baby drinks ... More
I recently flew 13 hours with my infant as a lap child. We were lucky enough to fly first class but I had a pretty awful experience with one of the flight attendants where about 8 hours on when my baby started to fuss she told us that we were welcome to go back to economy where there were plenty of open seats, as the crew was trying to get some much needed rest in the seats next to us. She didn... More
Moms I need some advice. I am traveling with my baby a lot over the next few months. Every airline tells me it is ok to fly with an infant in my arms and that I do not need a ticket. However I am seeing posts on the dangers of doing this in case of turbulence. And of course there are also posts of parents who bought a ticket, brought the car seat and were not allowed to use it. If you can share... More

Thinking of going to Iceland early September with our son, for approx 3-4 days. This will be our first trip on a “long” flight from NYC. Any tips on flying to make it easier with a baby? Since he’s so young, this mean we have to bring the car seat with us, right? So they have a safe place to sit in the taxi there? Any suggestions on things to do, places to see with a baby in Iceland? What ar... More
Planning to travel to Hawaii from Houston in November when the little one will be 10.5 months. Looking for travel tips! We are starting at zero, so everything and anything counts! Flights, car seat, strollers, hotels, things to do in Hawaii with an infant, things NOT to do when traveling with an infant etc.
Planning a trip to Chicago this fall and there are GREAT prices for some flights...but they’re all red eyes leaving at midnight and arriving super early. I know I could get my kid to sleep on the plane but I worry about crankiness the next day. Thoughts? Have you done this and survived?

I will be getting on a plane with my daughter soon. I have never traveled with children before, so I am definitely kind of scared. Any tips on what to pack and going through TSA? Should I use a carseat, carrier, or stroller? I definitely would love to know your experiences and advice.
We will be going on 2 trips, one to Puerto Rico (which I'm not as scared about) and the other will be to France. All the advice I keep getting is to have a bottle ready for take off, but I'm worried about jet lag and pretty much everything and anything. We are sending all heavy items to France ahead of time (pack n play, booster, extra formula, food, car seat) I'm worried he will sc... More
I’m traveling with my 3 month old baby in two weeks and wondering if I need to take both carseat and stroller for the airport? For the flight itself I might get a bassinet where baby can sleep, otherwise she’ll be on my lap the whole time. :-( Any advice?
