Tips for traveling with a baby 👶🏽✈️🌊☀️

Hey, Mamas! We’re taking our son out of the country in February and he’ll be 7 months old then. I’m mostly excited but also slightly nervous about navigating airports, how he’ll be on the plane (we have 5 flights total—3 under an hour) driving with him where the rules of the road aren’t obeyed as much. I found out that you can check as many “assistive devices” as you want and strollers, car seats, pack and plays all fall under that umbrella. We plan on just taking the jogger and car seat since I’ve sourced a pack and play at our first two locations and the hotel in the third is providing a crib 🙌🏾. Any tips or trips for traveling with a child near that age? What have your travel experiences been with your children in general? I welcome advice for children of all ages since this trip is the first of many. Looking forward to reading some responses. Cheers and love to you all. You’re doing great, mamas.

I went to Japan with a five month old! A baby carrier came in handy when he was upset and the parents had a pram too. Japan can be frustrating with lots of stairs when it comes to the pram though... something to consider about your destination :) as long as you have plenty of milk or snacks for the flight you will be okay. They recommend feeding the baby during takeoff and landing for their ears.

Awww just came across this I hope you all were safe and able to fly with all the craziness going on with the virus. I flew from bwi to New Orleans then New Orleans to Arizona then on to San Diego by myself with my then 5 month old daughter. I kept her in her stroller through the airport. Had to take her out and hold her through security but otherwise no problems and I found my row mates were super nice and accommodating. I did nurse right at take off and landing and didn’t have any problems with fussiness. The only thing I could say that was a bit off putting was a college aged girl sitting next to me leaving bwi. She was sweet but I think she was so shocked/excited to have a baby next to her I caught her snapping the baby for Instagram or Snapchat or whatever. I don’t put my baby online so idk it was something I didn’t consider until after it happened how many ppl would want to randomly share their experience with your kid and take a picture without asking.lol small rant anyway I hope y’all had safe travels

Hi loves! I’m preparing to move across country and I want to be sure my hard work of pumping doesn’t get left behind. I’m flying from LA to Philly so it’s a 5.5 hour flight. What are the best storage options to keep the milk good? What are the rules for TSA? Please help :)
