3 months and 2 wks ago I had the cutest baby (well im a bit bias regarding her cuteness) and we are finally starting our traveling again. We are flying back to Colombia and preparing for this trip was something completely different and LONG.
Do you know having a car seat is not a must and not really practiced in Colombia. And if we are in a taxi..how do we do that? I
mean do i just hold her tight and pray everything goes well?? Not to mention that every taxi driver in Colombia believes he is in a Formula 1 race.
Then there is the water situation, not so much the water for her formula (i can boil bottled water) but when she is having her bath..because no matter what some water will get in her mouth…and then what?
I don’t know how many people travel with their newborns, im assuming many, but as you can tell i am a bit nervous…specially since everyone who finds out that we are traveling like to give us their opinion, which usually is not so positive.
I have managed to stay calm and making sure she has everything she needs, but now im a little nervous about the flight. The whole eardrum popping situation and having to make sure she’s sucking on something for takeoff and landing is just stressing me out. This little baby is a bit on the independent side and when she doesn’t want her bottle she doesn’t want it no matter what..so what am I to do…..?
so this is where i am now as of this morning while i prepare for our Sunday flight..im trying to have the same relaxed and easy travel attitude i have always had, but it is just a bit hard staying relaxed.
