3 Essentials When Flying

Hey, Friends! 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are getting ready for NYE! I’m reaalllyyyy excited because we are flying to Chicago to see my sister in law and her family for New Years! I can’t wait to see all the kids interact and play with each other! Oh, and if you’ve happen to see the weather channel-the HIGH is 11 degrees!!! And that’s only ONE of the days we are there! I’ve never experienced weather like this before so it will be interesting! 

I used to consider myself a pro when flying with Reagan since we were pretty much flying either once or every other month. But it’s been 5 months since Reagan has flown and has a totally different personality now. She doesn’t want to sit for too long– always wants to be up and walking around. She is more set in her ways and lets you know exactly what she wants when she wants it. Luckily, Brandon and I are flying together so at least we will both be able to entertain her! 

As I started to pack- I was thinking of what I could bring on the plane to keep her occupied. I came up with 3 main essentials that I’m hoping will work this trip! 

  1. Buddy Headphones  – these are perfect headphones for kids because the volume is limited for a kid safe level. They have a built in audio splitter for sharing with others. And they are super durable! 
  2. Portable Sound Machine  haven’t used this yet but I’m hoping it will work! Reagan is a very light sleeper and every time she’s fallen asleep on the plane she’s easily woken up by someone talking or a loud noise. I’m hoping I can use this sound machine OR the app on my phone {with the headphones} to help cancel out any noise. 
  3. Laugh & Learn Books   I love these books for Rea. She gets a kick out of them every time! She always dances and claps her hands to the songs! 

If you have a 15 month little one and have some tips + tricks when flying, send them my way!

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Years!

with love, Danielle
