Booking our flights I
What the heck am I going to do with our car seat?! Do I check it with the luggage? Do I gate check it? Should I buy/borrow one of those travel roller things to lug it around the airport? What if I check it and they lose it! I know I can rent car seats, but I know they wont be to my obsessive safety standards.
Breathe Mar, breathe.
What if Bean decides to take a huge, messy, poo on the plane? There's barely enough room for me to turn around by myself in airplane bathrooms. How am I supposed to even begin to attempt to fix a messy diaper situation in there? How do people have sex in there?!! There's just no room for it!! Guess I'll have to change her on my lap tray and hope for the best.
Hope people don't mind being flashed! Cause they will be. Bean is a very distracted nurser, and I'm sure my boob will be hanging out to say hello every now and then while I'm trying to nurse her during take off and landing. I also hope that I don't get weird stares since she'll be almost 18 months and still nursing. We all know people judge, it's human nature.
I know it's going to be fine, and whatever happens we'll make it through. What can I say, I'm a worrier, it's what I do.
I probably will gate check the car seat, just to make sure we have at least have that when we land. Especially since we will be having a layover somewhere. I just don't trust airports not to lose my luggage! I think we'll get this bag to use to protect the car seat when we gate check it, and it also has a carry handle, so that will be nice for my husband when I make him carry it through the airports.
I hope everything works out to make it as comfortable for us as possible. I hope that my child stays as easy going as she has been and doesn't freak her crap out on the plane since she won't know what's going on. Any tips, or tricks, you'd like to share would be great! As much info as I can fill in my head to prepare for this, the better!
