OMG I’m going on an AIRPLANE with my BABY
In an effort to prevent my mother in law from visiting, and also to get over our terror of taking our baby places, we are going on a super short trip by airplane this weekend. It’s only an hour and an half flight, and we’re only staying one night, but…it’s going to be horrible, isn’t it? Bun Bun’s delicate routine will be totally disrupted (and hey, as an added bonus, her very first adorable little tooth is making its way in, oh the drool! but she’s being very sweet about it so far, mostly.) and it will take her months to recover and I will lose my shit and stab my mother in law in the face and fight hideously with my husband and there will be lots of weeping. Yes?
Any tips? I’ve heard you should nurse on takeoff and landing, but I imagine that’s not advisable when your baby can’t actually get any sustenance out of your withered old teats. Is giving a bottle the recommended equivalent? It is really just about the swallowing?
Any particularly good barbs I should have ready for assholes who give me dirty looks when my baby screams?
