we did it! not only did we survive our first flight as a family, but since chris had to head back to NYC early, me and hazel also had our first mommy/daughter solo plane ride.
there were some bumps along the way - turbulence, dropped pacifiers, tears, and having to pee on the plane while holding a baby (!?!), but we made it!
if you ever plan on traveling alone with an infant all i can say is BE PREPARED. having a solid game plan and only brining the essentials made it a totally tolerable (albeit anxiety ridden) feat.
