Tips for Flying with a Baby

Are you starting to plan a vacation? Does the thought of flying with a baby make you nervous? I remember feeling panicked a few years ago when my husband suggested we fly to Thailand with our 6-month-old baby. Every time I imagined this scenario, I pictured my baby crying non-stop for hours and hours. I envisioned passengers saying mean things and giving us dirty looks. And when I started Googling to get tips, I found all kinds of horror stories.

The first time I ever traveled with a nursing baby was when my family went to Thailand when my son was 6 months old. I had no idea what to pack and ended up not packing very smartly. I was so pre-occupied with making sure I had all my breast pump parts and extra bottles (which I didn’t use once) that I forgot more important things, like nipple ointment. We traveled with a lot of extended family and I didn’t feel comfortable nursing in front of them without a nursing cover or proper nursing clothes (which I didn’t pack) that I ended up sequestered in our room for a lot of the trip. That’s not how I envisioned exploring Thailand.

My oldest son was born 5 weeks premature and spent time in the NICU. It was several days after he was born that I was finally able to hold him and it was pure magic! I held him for almost 2 hours doing skin-to-skin and his health drastically improved. My husband and I did as much skin-to-skin as we were able and each time he seemed to get stronger and thrive more. I knew I wanted to do skin-to-skin for my second child. So, when I heard about VIJA Design’s Kangaroo Care Shirt, I was instantly intrigued.
