My dad passed away yesterday. I'm still feeling so incredibly numb. I've always been such a daddy's girl. I'm almost 40 and he still called me "snugglebug". I have a few voicemails on my phone that I've listened to several times already. I can't believe I'll never talk to him again.

We are flying to CT for the week tomorrow morning. Any tips for traveling with a 6 month old during prime awake hours?

Oh I am so sorry. I lost my dad 3 yrs ago when Milo was about 8 mos old. For the flight out there, I just brought lots of soft toys and some books. Milo was eating solids then so I brought some snacks. Honestly, I can't remember the flight at all, I was so numb. I *think* he did good because I can't remember otherwise. I hope your trip goes smoothly and you find some comfort with your family.

I am so sorry for your loss, Julie. This is so sad to hear.

When we traveled with Niko at 6 months, it was pretty easy because it was before mobility started. I really wouldn't worry too much. It was nice to have a boppy with us so he could sit facing us with some support. He spent a lot of time playing peekaboo with other passengers when he wasn't napping or nursing. Nursing definitely makes things easier. A bottle of water is nice, too. Sucking apparently helps their ears during takeoff and landing. Be sure to take him out of a pack before security or you'll face ridiculous extra screening.

My thoughts are with you.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine what you must be going through.

We haven't flown with Rowan yet but in my driving experience, prime awake time/daylight is better. A bedtime trip is the worst (so far). I hope all goes well with the flight.

he was such a nice man, i'm so glad i got a chance to meet him. i hope you & josh & ben are taking good care of each other as the grief passes.

it seems like babies have a mind of their own when they travel. some seem just fine & content, while others are really bothered by it. not that i have any first-hand experience, but bring his favorite things, and be prepared to carry him and smile at other people a lot if all else fails. they understand.

I saddened by your loss, but I feel better knowing Josh is probably taking good care you. Sending you warm thoughts.
