hey it's free dia and Everest here and today I got a question on my Instagram asking if I can give her tips and advice on traveling with a baby if you follow me on snapchat or on Instagram then you would know that we just came back from our first trip to the east coast we went to North Carolina and in our first airplane flight five hours and you know what it went pretty well first things first before you get on any flight I would suggest you call that airline and
00:32
ask how they do everything if you can take your stroller up to the gate if there's a weight thing how many bags because apparently every airline is different we took American Airlines and we were able to bring our car seat and stroller all the way up to the gate check that in and we just brought the baby baby was able to bring an extra bag for him and one carry on for the both of us one thing about american airlines that was not so great there's actually a
01:03
few but one of the main things you aren't able to board the flight if you had a baby or an infant or child tip number to book your flight when you know your baby will be calm now everyone knows most babies between the hours of three to seven pm they are extra fussy tired hungry whatever it is they're just fussy pants so for me I knew that if I booked a later flight he would possibly
01:34
go to sleep he always goes to bed 7 730 so I booked my flight to leave at seven o'clock and for us worked tip number three trying to get to the gate early for us leaving in Los Angeles was so crazy because we just had to pack everything it was our first trip we got to the airport right when our flight was boarding which is not a good idea if you get there early like we did on our way back you're able to see if they have like a full row for you guys to take because you
02:05
they do and that's what happened with us actually luckily on the way there and on the way back they gave us a whole three seater so it was me the baby in the husband most of the time babies on my lap but in between the flight he was able to sit in his seat and play around so get to the gate early tip number four bring your carrier on board your peugeot or whatever it is one once you have the baby in the carrier you have your hands-free while you're waiting to board the flight you can kind of just sway
02:37
around and get your baby all calm also in flight now I didn't know this but once you're taking off and landing you're not allowed to have the baby in the carrier at least american airlines they said no they said to just hold him with my seatbelt on um but throughout the flight when he would want to go to sleep it was just so much easier to have him in the carrier and him lie on me holding him like this rather than me just cradling him which I did try and
03:09
after a while your arm gets really love and really heavy and you can't move or do anything but if you have him in the little carrier it's just so much easier tip number five if you have a traveling buddy that's not a baby maybe that's a good idea I'm really grateful that my husband came with me because I was able to ask him to hold Everest while I went to the bathroom or one I had to go grab a bottle of water um I think that really
03:40
just made me calm down even more if it was me alone on my very first trip i don't know i think i would have been a little bit more stressed but because i had my husband around i think i was a little bit more at ease which brings me to the next advice is try not to stress i know it's really hard but babies infants they can read off of you and if you're stressed that's going to make them stressed or disappointed at least
04:13
that's what i read so the whole time I was try to keep my cool at the end of the day if we get from one destination to the other in one full piece then we did our job so I I don't know I wasn't trying to stress about everything in between next tip is just make sure you have his diaper or anything you need that you're able to just like crap out of your back not store it up on top maybe put it down underneath because
04:44
there are a few times where he had a few spills I needed to grab a wipe or we needed to go to the bathroom because he was pooping and it was smelling so i like that i had my diaper bag and everything pre-packed right here so I could just like pick it up grab the baby and go next tip is to keep your baby entertained now when we were taking off he was so excited he was on the window he was just smiling he saw all the lights flickering and it was great he was just like stimulated as soon as we got up on the flight he was awake so we
05:16
needed to have something that he could play with now my mistake was I brought all his favorite toys well guess what he doesn't want to play with favorite toys he wants to play with new things who's grabbing for the magazine for the snacks for the cup those plastic cups I did help my friend suggested to go to either target or toys r us and they have like a dollar three dollar corner go there and just buy some trinkets so maybe a book a sticker book a few new toys and bring
05:47
down on the flight I thought that was really smart because it is true once you give or show the baby a new toy to play with you can probably keep him preoccupied for 30 minutes to an hour another thing I did was I pre-packed a little bit of some infants next which were i like the little yogurt dry frozen cubes that dissolve not tubes little circles that dissolve in the baby's mouth I also had some baby biscuits
06:17
these were new I tried them the night before just to see but I did bring them on flight and that captain preoccupied for a little bit because he was starting to get a little like you know I need to move or something you just hand that to him and he was just kind of playing it playing with it in his mouth so that really helped another friend of mine mentioned that if you bring your ipad and have the place where he can draw that little notepad that can keep her distracted I tried that unfortunately he was still too little to
06:48
understand the whole concept so that didn't work out I just brought my ipod for nothing another big thing for me at least if you still nurse then try to nurse as much as possible as soon as we got up in the air I nursed him he was calm he was almost dozing off it was great an hour into the flight he was getting a little you know like I need to move around I nursed him and he passed out he was in the ER go on top of me for maybe like 3-4 hours and then he woke up
07:21
for the last hour and it was perfect so nursing really comped the baby down it really helped me it also helps them when they're going up and down because of their ears so if you don't nurse make sure you bring your formula I'm sure you can grab one water or water up on the flight for me nursing helped a lot next tip is bring us close for the baby and for yourself we did have a little accident where he peed on the side it's a good thing we had an extra pair of
07:52
pants also have something to change for the mall at least the top because you never know when there's going to be an accident since it was at night I did put him in his pjs but I made it a two-piece just so that it's easier for me to change him in the airplane instead of doing the whole onesie and I have to take everything off type of thing but whatever's easier for you to just make sure the baby's comfy it's actually cold up there so have some socks a light jacket anything to keep him warm a
08:23
change of clothes always helps the last tip is just have fun you're getting to travel with your baby which a lot of people believe it or not are not fortunate enough or don't even have the guts to do I have so many friends that have babies they're just like we can't go anywhere because we have a baby which i think is untrue me myself my mom and dad were traveling with me as soon as I was born we were traveling to brazil and around just enjoy it don't stress if anyone says
08:54
anything don't worry about it let it go one year out the other fortunately for us we didn't have anyone say anything bad we actually had a really nice comment on the way back this one guy who was on the other side of our seats as soon as we landed he looked at us and he said best travelling baby ever and it was such a compliment because actually that flight coming back he was just like
09:24
he didn't want to sleep or stay still or anything so we my husband and I really try to keep him entertained with reading books and toys and all that stuff but luckily he didn't cry or it wasn't too fussy we got lucky I think so these are my tips and advices hopefully they come in handy to someone hopefully you have a very safe fun-filled smooth stressless travel thank you for your question and
