Today is a big day… today we head to the airport and board a flight to California. It will be the first of many flights for Hudson and I’m glad we’re starting early, but I’d be lying if I said we weren’t nervous. The fear of nonstop crying (unlikely) and being the object of fellow passengers’ ire (hmmm) just slightly trumps the fact that he’s just barely over eight weeks old and could end up sitting in close quarters with someone’s carry-on illness. Truth be told, the car seat rides to and from the airport and then once we’re in California are probably scariest of all!
And yet there’s another part of me that is excited to face those fears and introduce our little baby to a lifetime of travel. Fingers crossed!
Here’s a great list of tips for traveling with a baby–from Hannah, who contributed on Hither and Thither. Joanna, Elisabeth, and Vicky also shared some helpful thoughts. I’ve poured over all of them and look forward to one day adding our list to the lot.
