I have been for the longest of times wanted to share my experience travelling with a baby and never did...so here is something that i think will benefit a lot of moms whose a globetrotter themselves as well as their families.
My first experience travelling with a baby is when Miss M was just 4 weeks old :) and i have only this picture of her on the flight. They didnt have a bassinet seat for me but instead they gave me two seats to put baby in her car seat and slept right next to me :)
It depends on the airlines actually, coz they let me bring the car seat along and fasten it directly on the airplane seat and that was it baby have her own cozy bed with her the whole 7 hours flight to KL After this flight, baby had another flight back to France in September, then another flight back to KK in November then another flight back to KK in March and finally the most recent one , back to France for Spring holidays.
So actually Miss M have been travelling since she was 4 weeks old, 3 months, 5 months, 9 months and 10 months old. So i have lots of experiences to write about :)
flying @ 9 months
flying @10 months
I've always preffered to have night flights as it is easier on the baby and also to yourself too coz, naturally it's their bedtime and so baby will sleep during the flight and the mummy and daddy can steal a few winks too :) so if ever you are booking for a flight which is more then 4 hours or more try and book a night flight and so you wont lose your precious winks :))
Look it up if you want, you can get it at Mothercare and i dont remember the price hehehe.
Hope this helps some moms out there who is going to travel with a baby in the near future and hopefully this post helps a little with the thousands of questions in your head hehehe :)
Next I will try and do a post on what gear we should have for travelling with babies on a flight :)
at the mean time....
Have a good week peeps! :))
