First Flight ✈️

Today Gus went on his first flight, and considering he’s teething AND only took a 40 minute nap on the way to the airport, he did amazingly well.

He had a small meltdown about halfway through our two and a half hour flight, and nursing an overtired fidgety toddler wedged between your husband and the carseat isn’t much of a picnic, but it bought us enough time until we landed.

I also have the sinus infection that will. not. end. So that made flying a real treat.

Other fun things that happened: TWO diapers leaked, leaving Gus with soaking wet pants, 👎. The flight crew gave us a First Flight certificate, signed by the pilots 👍!

In the end we made it to Kansas, safe and sound, and ready to celebrate Mike’s grandparents 60th (!) wedding anniversary!

  1. Hey there! I’m planning on taking our (then) 10 month old on his first flight in June from Missouri to British Columbia. Any tips on flying with a wee one?

    • Try to fly at naptime if you can. We also had new toys and favorite snacks in heavy rotation, and my inlaws paid for a seat for him so we had his car seat with us on the plane. If your baby sleeps well in a carrier (Gus does, our timing was just off) you can try wearing him for part of the flight/letting him sleep on your chest.
