I have to leave Reagan tonight for a work trip to Raleigh, NC. I know I am going to feel so alone in the hotel room without her... no nursing her to sleep, snuggling, etc. Anyone else have to go away without their LO yet?

The good news is we have the opportunity to go to Australia in September on vacation with some other folks with kids. We're searching for flights now - they are SO long (14+ hours). Reagan will be 1 year old. How do you think a 1 year old would do on a LONG plane trip?

Not to sound bad - but is there something I can give her to sleep? SAFELY - of course.

Aww that stinks that you have to go away. I'm definitely not ready for that yet and don't think I will be for a long while. I haven't even gone out for a few hours without her.

There is no way in the world I'd want to take a 1 year old on a 14+ hour plane ride to be honest. Most likely it'll be miserable for you, her and everyone around you. Some people will give Benedryl to make their kids sleep but you have to be careful because it can have the opposite effect on some kids and make them hyper instead of sleepy.

I think I'd enjoy a night away ALL alone right now. lol

When we came back state side, from England. The flight over was 9 hours but we had lay overs, so our whole trip was literally 22 hours! Kayla was just 5 days shy of being 1. She did SOOOOO well. She was even sick and she did amazing! The flight attendant complimented us when we got off, saying how well behaved she was.
We just packed snacks, toys. Also, try to get an overnight flight, so she'd sleep quite a bit. Pack things she hasn't seen yet, so she's excited to see new stuff.
Plus, I have to say, the flight attendants are so good at helping to entertain them and being friendly. I'd rather take a 1yo than my 2yo. lol

Yes - I have heard traveling from ages 2-4 can be rather difficult b/c they are SO active!

We will definitely try to get an overnight flight and a lot of the long international flights actually have cribs/bassinets in the bulkheads - which I never knew!

It is pretty nice - I'm staying at the Renaissance at North Hills town center and its a really nice hotel/area!! Can't wait to get home tonight to Reagan though - I missed her terribly last night.

I talked to my DH this morning and she slept from 8:45 pm - 6:30 am. Figures on a night when I would be gone!!!
