  • I don’t have a white noise machine but I downloaded an app on my tablet that has all sorts of nature sounds and including white noises. Works great in hotels too to muffle out the noises in the hallway or in a neighboring room!

  • She’s so adorable peacefully sleeping in the bassinet. Not bad at all for her first flight! I find that flying with a baby or toddler usually turns out to be easier than we expect. We shouldn’t all worry so much. ��Heidi

  • Hi there I’m going traveling pretty soon do you need to have your kids tested for coronavirus before traveling out of the country and have the proper paperwork I know for a adults you do but not sure for kids? Thx

  • Aaaah SO needed to see this! I have a trip with Harlow coming up in December to Colorado to visit my mom and as you know, I’ll be solo dolo so these were some great tips! Thank you Brianna for another awesome video! XOXO

  • Loving your video, I love the idea for small pottery barn backpacks for each kid. I am excited for vlogmas from you, are starting after Thanksgiving or Dec 1? ❤️

  • Awesome video! I’m traveling next month from NYC to Indiana with my soon to be on travel day two month old. I am a single parent and hope, to the heavens above, that she sleeps the entire flight. There will be connections, but we will fly first class so I could be comfortable. I saw the stroller at the gate, which answered one of my mental questions. I also didn’t see ear muffs/plugs on the baby, which kind of answered another unless he did have a pair. Thank you!

  • I’m watching this because we plan to travel with our two month old and your baby is a lot chiller than mine! He would never let me put him in that bassinet �� when the lady told you that you were brave for traveling with a baby she was referring to people with non chill babies. Lol

  • How do you sleep in a hotel with a baby and toddler? How do you do naps if they are at different times? Did your kids ever have opposite nap schedules? Our 8 month old and 3 yo are not lining up and with bedtime.

  • Noisy babies and parents should be thrown off at the nearest airport and the parents should be billed for all costs incurred. We don’t need this on planes. I expect peace and quiet on a flight. Its time the silent majority spoke up to the airlines about this.

  • You make it look so easy!!!!! We had a fairly easy time with one baby but It seems so much harder with 2…and my oldest with be almost 9. ����

  • Wonderfull �� obvious thumbs up! Love your channel! Just joined in! Give a check on mine! If you like join me too ✌️have a great week

  • I traveled with my new walker 10 month old baby from LA to Hawaii and we walked the entire time up and down the aisle. We made friends with everyone. Also, we definitely offered to buy drinks for those in front of us because my little guy kept bumping their seats. We booked the last row of seats. Yes to snacks snacks snacks! Oh and don’t accidentally forget that you have a bottle of water in the bottom of your diaper bag and get searched.. lol

  • “Olivia’s destined to be a flight attendant.” Nooooooo! Why punish her like that?!:P
    j/k. Those were some of the best days of my life!
    Looks like you guys had a great experience. But if I know anything about flying stand-by, it’s that it is always that return flight that has all the problems! Let’s see if you can go 2 for 2!

  • Before traveling by plane with a baby, bare in mind that he/she have to be maximum as long as the bassinet and not more than 10 kg, approx 22. 5 lbs. The airline staff may deny you the bassinet due to obvious safety reasons. If you know the baby is bigger, I suggest you buy or bid for an extra seat to make the baby and you more comfortable during a long flight. Otherwise babies are just adorable and love to have them on my flights ��

  • Love your channel. Do you check the stroller at the gate? What type of baggage do you use for carry on? I too work at an airline but recently found out we’re expecting our first child. �� I know packing will completely change.

  • Most airlines will allow you to carry a stroller and carseat and any other baby equipment for free. Check out our travel blog with our baby. We went to South America for 3 months with our 6 month old baby. Hope this helps you to keep traveling with your little kiddo!
