What I Wish I Had Known #7

>> Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Now that spring is here and summer is soon to follow, traveling is in the future for a lot of us. Namely, flying.

I remember the first time we flew with a baby. Our son was barely over 2 months old, and I was SO nervous to be flying with a baby. I worried about everything. Would he be ok? Would he scream his head off the whole time? Would everyone hate us because we had a screaming baby? What about his ears during take off and landing? Etc, etc, etc.

I wish I had known that flying with a newborn baby was just about the easiest thing in the world! Turns out the loudness of the flight lulls babies right to sleep. I assume it sounds a lot like the womb did. He slept like a champ basically the whole flight and it was the easiest thing in the world. And for the ears, he either slept through that part, or was completely fine as long as he was drinking something so he kept swallowing.

So if you are flying with a newborn here soon, don't worry about it at all!

It's waay, way easier than flying with a toddler! Now there's something to be concerned about...

Glad it was so easy for you! My daughter had colic and I'm sure it would've been awful for everyone.

I don't know. I've heard of babies with colic being soothed by loud noises like a vacuum. The super loudness in the airplane cabin might have soothed a colicy baby?
