Next Tuesday Mollie and I are flying to Florida to see my family and meet my most adorable, chunky, smiley twin nieces for the first time! I seriously can't wait - until I start having visions of a Mollie meltdown 20 minutes into the two and a half hour flight.
So this is a plea to all mothers: share your wisdom! How old were your babies when you flew with them? What should I bring in the diaper bag? What helped distract them? When should I board? Were your stroller/car seat banged up? Do I need something more heavy-duty than trash bags for them? Is changing a diaper in those bathrooms practically impossible? Just how awkward is it to nurse in such close proximity to your seat mate? Are people really as nasty to moms of crying babies as I've heard they are? Does you crying yourself help win sympathy?
Ok, so I obviously have some idea about all of these questions, but you get the picture. I'm all ears :)
