Mommy in London

Trying to figure things out!

Time to Travel

on March 13, 2012

Well, the day has nearly arrived for us to go on our first big trip! We’ll be taking a 12 hour flight from London to South Africa with a 5 month old baby…that sounds completely crazy to me, but I can’t turn back now.

We’ve had some great advice already:

* we’ve booked a seat with a bassinet for E
* we’re bringing a sling to carry him around the airport and on the plane
* I’m planning to breastfeed him at take off and landing
* we’re bringing several pacifiers in case he needs more soothing / sucking
* we bought some new toys that he hasn’t played with before
* also bringing a couple of his favourite toys
* bringing his sleeping bag as it’s what he’s used to sleeping in (and extra blankets in case it’s really cold on the plane)

I would love any other tips!
