One of the best parts of summer is traveling (IMO!). With courage and fortitude, traveling is possible with children, even babies, but it takes planning to ensure that the trip is, in fact, FUN.
Read on for some air-travel travel tips from me — Nurse Practitioner, co-founder of NAPS, and most importantly mom of 3 — who successfully(-ish) managed my first plane trip when my first baby girl was just 6 weeks old. It’s all in the prep, honestly. Prep is what will let you handle any hiccups…and there will be hiccups!

We're back in your inbox 📥 today with more of our Moment for Mom questions and a reminder that if you don't see your question below, or you just want to dive deeper into any of these topics, we're always available to chat with you virtually! Just schedule a 30-minute phone consult to talk with a Registered Nurse about anything and everything from newborn sleep to toddler tantrums.
Q: If baby doesn't finish breastmilk bottle, how long until it needs to be tossed?
A: Don't waste that liquid gold! 🤱 You can definitely put it back in the fridge and save it for the next feeding. Check out and bookmark this article full of great advice on breast milk storage and usage from one of our favs, Emily Oster.
Q: Cribsheet made me depressed, is breastfeeding really not better than formula?
A: Don't let that be your takeaway! Fed is best, but research shows that breastmilk has tons of antibodies that formula does not have. BUT, whatever is best for your family is always the best! ❤️
Q: How to do bedtime routine elsewhere? Going to a friend's for dinner with baby in tow.
A: Be consistent, and baby will do great! Try to create the same sleeping environment at your friend's house that baby has at home. Noise machine, light-blocking curtain, sleep sack...whatever you use at home, pack it up and bring it with you!
Q: Is it normal for my boobs to tingle in pain when it's cold (BFing)?
A: Yes, totally normal! Nothing to worry about. But if you ever do want to talk to one of our certified lactation specialists, you can book a consult here.
Q: Does the working mom/daycare guilt EVER end?
A: Honestly, no, not really, but it does get easier. At NAPS, we're lucky because we're surrounded by working moms who support each other, but we get that not everyone has a built-in mom friend community. If you're looking for your own community, come to our next Working Moms' Survival Group™! Our Nurse Practitioner, Ellen, is leading a group beginning on May 9th at 7pm.
Q: 13 mo - when to get rid of sleep sack?
A: Never! (Ha!) 😜 No, but seriously, it helps prevent baby from jumping out of the crib, so definitely don't ditch the sleep sack until they are in a bed! This is a really common issue, so we often refer to this blog for alternatives to the traditional sleep sack.
For more customized advice, schedule a time to chat with one of our nurses!
