Travelling alone with a baby !

Hi my lovelies! I always found “airport-life” stressful. With all waiting and boarding, being squeezed between seats that lack space etc. Now travelling alone with a baby is a whole different level lol! Was I stressed? 100% ! Having my hubby around was load easier. We missed hubby so much.

The whole logistics of how to manage folding a pushchair, holding a baby,  a backpack and carrying all of that on the plane. Then thinking about who’ll help me put it in the overhead storage while holding a baby etc. So I made a plan. I knew that I am not the first and definitely not the last mom to fly alone with a baby so I just had to suck-it up! Going around the airport was fine as he was in the pushchair the whole time. Thankfully we got the Bumprider pushchair that has an option of lying the baby down as he is not sitting on his own yet. Also the fact that if folds into a little luggage shape so you can take it on the plane in the overhead storage, helps a lot.   D8642714-DC01-4622-ADAD-3CBAEB15E817 When we started boarding I knew this was the time to get organised and focused. I took the nappy changing mat out of Jujube backpack and put Nicolai on the floor. Then I have folded the pushchair. And the last thing was putting Nicolai into the Nuna Cudl Carrier. 342C2018-95A0-467F-A3BE-21B7EE82EB4C 7A724A29-C221-47A5-BABC-ED8C95285606 Then I have picked up the folded pushchair and walked towards the airplane. Thankfully there was a gentleman who offered to help and carried it on the plane. Once I have arrived to our row I have laid Nicolai on the seat for 10sec while standing next to him so he doesn’t wriggle or turn. Took off the carrier and placed it in the overhead storage. Then we sat down. Phew that was a relief! He was fed and then slept through the whole flight. Thankfully he is good on the planes. Overall I tried to stay as calm as possible as babies can sense if mom is stressed. Travelling alone with baby is doable but not easy. Hope this blog helps any of you that are planning to travel alone with your baby. ———————————————————————- Pozdravljene drage moje! Letališča so me vedno spravljala v stres. Čakanje, pomanjkanje prostora med sedeži itd. No, sedaj z dojenčkom je še težje. Še posebej sedaj, ko sva z Nicolai-em letela sama. Sem bila pod stresom? Oh ja 100%! Potovanje z možem je definitivno lažje. Oh kako nama je manjkal Matej. Cela logistika: kako zložiti marelo/voziček medtem ko držim otroka, kam ga odložiti, kdaj ga dati v nosilko, kako vse skupaj nesti na avion.. Nato še skrb kako dati zloženo marelo ter prtljago v prostor nad glavo medtem ko držim malega. Ugh. Pa sem naredila načrt. Poleg vsega pa nisem ne prva in ne zadnja mami, ki je sama letela z dojenčkom. Sprehod skozi letališče je bil ok, saj sem ga imela ves čas v Bumprider mareli kjer je pridno ležal. Še dobro da obstajajo marele katere imajo možnost tudi ležečega položaja saj je Niki še premali, da bi sam sedel. Poleg vsega pa je popoln za avione saj se zloži v obliko mini kovčka tako, da gre lahko na avion v predel nad glavo. Ko se je pričelo vkrcavanje sem vedela, da moram biti zorganizirana in fokusirana. Prvo sem iz Jujube nahrbtnika vzela podlogo za previjanje, da sem lahko odložila Nicolaia. Po tem sem zložila voziček/marelo. Na koncu pa položila Nikija v Nuna Cudl nosilko. Ruzak na rame, voziček v roko in sva bila na poti proti avionu. Na srečo se je nek gospodič ponudil in nesel voziček na avion. FA74FBEE-5CD8-4404-8B03-BA86F5B9FDF2 Nikija sem za 10sek odložila na sedež in hitro kakor se je dalo iz sebe vrgla nosilko, zraven pa opazovala, da se mali ne bi premaknil ta čas. Nato sva se končno usedla - uhh! Niki je pojedel in nato prespal cel let. Imam srečo, da je vedno priden na avionih. Skušala sem ostati mirna skozi cel proces saj dojenčki začutijo, če je mami v stresu. Torej potovati sam z dojenčkom je izvedljivo vendar ne lahko. Upam, da zapis pomaga kateri od vas, ki ima namen potovati sama z dojenčkom.
