-Wear your baby when traveling.-
Going through airport security went exceptionally well. We were moved to the express lane and didn’t even have to remove our shoes. We made our way through the medal detector, got my hands swabbed to make sure there were no signs of explosives and then we were free to be on our way. Having baby G in her Tula was so helpful because it enabled me to have my hands free to deal with our bags. This was my experience at the Portland airport. LAX on the other hand was a different story. But that travel story will have to be for another time.
-Use your stroller as a cart for your bags-
-Check your car seat and stroller at the gate.-
-Bring Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer-
-Arrange your diaper bag-
-Have snacks and water bottle or sippy cup ready-
Babies will feel the most pressure on their ears during landing. My favorite is this water bottle with a straw. Swallowing will help to pop their ears. Nursing, drinking or snacking are all good ways to keep baby busy and help to pop their little ears.
-Ask for help-
