Well I was gonna have a friend do a guest post today, but that didn’t work out.
BF and travel. Keep in mind I haven’t really gone anywhere big while nursing… and I’ve been very lucky.
We had very few trips when Kalila was EBF… the farthest being 5 hours or so away when my mom got sick. Zavier’s already been on more and most of them have been that far or farther. Really I think the reason we’ve been so lucky with them is that we went at night and both kids (at least at a young age since Kalila’s so not like this anymore) sleep well. It also helps that heading out to West TX we have regular stops along the way where I can feed the baby if I need to. We only had to make a random feeding stop once w/ Zavier (so far). There was once w/ Kalila that she was so distraught over the trip (was younger than Zavier, on a shorter trip during the day) that I climbed in back and nursed her while she was in her seat. Prob not the best idea but the only thing we could think of at the time lol.
Obviously no idea what Zavier will be like on trips when he’s older. It was easy with Kalila though. She knew to ask on breaks.
And yeah… that’s the extent of my experience while traveling. I haven’t had to deal with airlines and little ones yet. They haven’t left the state (or country) yet. Just little (or not so little, going back home is kinda a ways away lol) road trips. No complaints though, it is easy when we need to go.
