When I took Henry to NYC, I HAD to take him to one of my favourite parts of the city – the West Village. Not that he was going to remember it, being just 5 months old at the time, but as I was an avid fan of the TV series Sex and the City and F.R.I.E.N.D.S during my teenage years, I simply had to document our morning in the West Village and beyond…
I recently took Henry on his first flight and to the Big Apple – yes a 5-month old on a long haul flight, 7 hours 50 minutes no less. A few people quoted I was “brave” and/or “mad”, others said “go for it” and some simply said “good luck”!
Since my trip, many have asked me questions about travelling with a baby. Can you take baby milk in hand luggage? What’s the deal with pushchairs on board?
So I thought I’d blog about my learnings and tips which I hope will be of interest to anyone looking to take a little one on their first flight – long or short haul….
