A NOTE FOR THE NEWBIES!
TRAVEL WITH A NEWBORN
No matter how terrifying this prospect may seem, the best time to travel with your child is when they’re between zero and six-months-old. They’re immobile, they sleep a lot, they actually fit on the tiny airplane change tables, and there’s literally nothing a boob (or pacifier) can’t fix. Most importantly, they’re not relying on constant entertainment, meaning you can chill out and actually enjoy your time away.
Will your babe go buck-wild and cry for an entire flight? Maybe. But know this: millions of babies have cried on millions of flights before you, and no one remembers. If it happens, just try to calm your spawn and get over it. Ear buds and movies are available on planes for a reason.
