Travel: A Helpful Hoodie

This is a great idea. A hooded sweatshirt that's made to make your travel easier. Well, easier if you're not traveling with a toddler. In fact, if you had this sweater, you wouldn't even notice those pesky toddlers any more ;-)

I'm just saying.

Some cool features:
  • Hidden Stash Pocket with Ear Plugs
  • Armpit Zippers [for ventilation]
  • Removable, Inflatable Neck Pillow
  • Snap-Out Light Shield [to cover your eyes]
  • Sound Pocket with Headphone Cable Port
  • Zippered, Internal Passport and Ticket Pocket

We're booking a flight with our son soon and I'm terrified. TERRIFIED. I wonder how MetaBaby does? Is it awful? How do you keep him entertained?

Oh and I also have a little blog bling awaiting you over at my place. I know *yawn* but I still puffy heart ya! ;)

Gosh, I'd say it depends. If the flight is during day hours, you'll have to bring things he likes. I also know some parents bring a bunch of new things (e.g., 99 Cent Store bling), but with all the recent lead recalls, I'm paranoid about cheap toys. If you have an old phone that's out of commission, you might consider charging it (so it lights up) as that's a favorite.

If it's an evening flight, he might sleep. If so, you're a lucky, lucky Mama Geek ;-)

Do you get him his own seat? Does he sit still the entire flight? What about his ears?

Can you feel my paranoia?

MetaMommy said...

I feel that paranoia how often? Every. Single. Time. We. Fly. So far, I'm not sure when it gets better. I've heard when they're able to sit and wear headphones. So train Bear to wear headphones ;-)

We do get him his own seat, and he sits in his sit n stroll (car seat that converts into a stroller). However, he gets antsy after a while, which is only fair cuz who likes to sit in the exact same position all day. Every time we let him out to stretch his legs, he would start climbing on everything. And when we put him back in the seat, that's when the real fight started. Oy!

As for his ears, he didn't seem to have much trouble. That said, he does like water. So once we started descending, I would give him his sippy cup every couple of minutes and he would take a few gulps.

Thanks for the info. I'm not sure if I feel better or even more scared. :)

Sorry! I've been told I do that. The Debbie Downer in me, I suppose :-o

Debbie Downer. Heh, that just gave me insta-smile. Heh.
