We're Back!

Last Monday morning we were up by 3 am to catch our first flight out of St. Louis. After a very tearful goodbye to the grandparents, we took Paige on her first (of many!) plane rides.

She was SO good! From start to finish, it took about 25 hours. She slept a good amount of the time. I was very pleasantly surprised at how "easy" it was to travel with her.

Her very first flight!

Paige was so good. However, nursing on an airplane.....SO not for me! It was much harder than I thought it would be, and so stressful. It doesn't help that Paige doesn't like the nursing cover. I am glad it will be a few months before having to do that again. When we landed in our city, she decided to pee all over herself and the changing pad. Apparently she thought she needed a new outfit and couldn't wait the 30 minutes to get home :)

On our domestic flight, they made Paige wear her own seat belt. It attached to mine.

I don't think any of us really experienced jet lag. Paige has already gone back to sleeping 4-5 hour stretches at night, and is awake much more than I would like during the day. She's almost 7 weeks old and feeding every 3 hours. How long should her awake time be? She used to be able to sleep up to 2 hours at a time, but now she's closer to 45-1 hour. When does babies start having set naps?

I have tons of really cute pictures that I need to post. Maybe tomorrow.

  1. Jet (12 months) started set naps pretty late...6 months maybe? But the length is STILL unpredictable! I just follow his cues. She's getting to the age now where you can expect much more awake/alert time and some sleep regression. As soon as you hit a rhythm something (development, travel, teething, etc) will change it! :)
