Flying and Travels
Hey everyone! Sorry about such a long silence!
We just got back from our first flight while baby wearing! It was quite an experience. Flying from Utah to Virginia was long, of course, but made so much easier wearing him.
Wearing in the airport is easy peasy. One just simply goes through the older metal detectors not the new full body scanners. Once through the metal detector you have your hands swabbed. I'm not sure what chemical elements they are looking for but I just made sure not to touch any chemicals prior to flying!
In the Salt Lake City airport and the Chicago airport there were a handful of women babywearing. All SSCs (soft structured carriers). These mommies looked so much happier while traveling!
On our last 2 flights from the east coast we decided to take the extra time and do a back carry with the Mei Tai (panel carrier with wraps). Once again going through security was super easy and he was happier with a "better" view! Getting on and off the plane with him in a back carry was still easy but I did have to stand to do it.
It made my heart happy to see so many moms wearing their kids in the airport and on the flights!
How many of you have baby worn while flying?
