A 13 hour flight alone with a baby went surprisingly smoother than I had expected... I did all of the things that people suggested like:
-I got a GOOD baby carrier where Lucy felt cozy and secure.
I love my Moby Wrap because I don't have to support her head while she's sleepin'.
-I used the handicap stall with pride.
I wheeled that stroller on in there!
-I asked the desk at the gate for a bulkhead seat with a bassinet.
IT CHANGED MY LIFE! My arms got a break, and Lucy was able to SLEEP.
-I made sure she was sucking a binky or nursing during take off & landing.
It helped her ears balance the altitude.
-I packed snacks for myself.
Just incase I was too occupied to eat the meals on board.
-I brought plenty of clothes for ME and baby.
Messes include Mommies sometimes too.
I definitely had some angels with me, I will never forget the cute old Italian couple who helped me along the way...
