Off to England

We are taking Ruby on her first international trip. We're heading to England so she can meet the rest of her family and friends. To say I'm anxious about travelling with her is the understatement of the year. Not only have a developed a brand new extreme fear of flying, I'm also nervous that she will scream through the entire night flight and we will be the most hated people on the plane.

Realistically, she's pretty good at night, so I'm hoping that she will just snuggle up and snooze (that way Nick and I can get some shut-eye as well). Jet lag will be a whole other story...

When we get back, if all goes well, I'll share some of our tips for travelling with a baby. Until then, I'm relying on the tips from some of my favourite bloggers:

A Cup of Jo
Aspiring Kennedy

I love their tips. These ladies have babies/kids that are seasoned travelers. Let's hope that before long Ruby can join those ranks!

Anybody out there have any last minute tips for me?


  1. Airplane Bassinet!

    This is the Air Canada policy but I've seen them and they seem good so you can have hands-free baby time.

    If you're travelling with an infant in Economy Class, you may request a bassinet in advance of travel by contacting Air Canada Reservations. However, we are unable to confirm availability until the time of your flight's departure.

    bassinets are assigned on a first come, first served basis, subject to availability at time of flight departure;
    bassinets may be provided in Economy Class only on the following aircraft:
    Boeing 777-300 (77W)
    Boeing 777-200 (77L)
    Airbus 330 (333)
    Boeing 767-300 (763)
    for safety reasons:
    bassinets can be used only for infants weighing less than 12kg (25lbs) who are unable to sit upright;
    the cabin crew is responsible for installing the bassinet once the seat belt sign has been turned off.

  2. Oh and do new parents even get jet lag???? I thought you get used to crazy sleep schedules and become super human? Either way I'm sure you'll have the best time!
