: We're going away on vacation at the end of this month. The flight is 6 hours long. We will be staying at hotels for 2 weeks. It is the first time I'm flying with my baby. Any input is appreciated!
Where are you going? Vacation, what's a vacation. We didn't even take a honeymoon :(.
I don't know how helpful I can be. We did a 4 hour car trip to go to New Jersey and see my folks. I won't do that again anytime soon. My SIL travels to Washington state with her son every year. She takes his car seat on the plane (I think she contacted the airline before hand). Take plenty of toys, snacks, etc. Sometimes he sleeps, sometimes he fusses. It's hit or miss. Friends of ours adopted a little boy from Siberia and when they brought him home he slept the entire way, 10 hours. I wish you luck, enjoy your vacation (we all need one).
