7. Take the Rear Seats

This works for us when we travel economy class in a three-hour flight. We have tried sitting in the front row and it has been a disaster. When I need to stand up to “dance” my baby to sleep, everyone sees me. That is sort of embarrassing.

My husband and I learned that it’s best if you prepay for rear seats so we have the entire space at the back for our “dance.” Plus there are usually two or three flight attendants stationed there and some of them are nice enough to carry your baby even for a few minutes.

Ten months of traveling with our Nicholas and Antoinette taught us that traveling light may be improbable with children. We are now thinking of how we can whip that part of traveling with children. Any suggestions?
