Just after some tips on travelling with baby, and re-adjusting to routines when you get home.
We are off to Ireland in 3 weeks time, our little girl will be 11 weeks when we leave. We are flying to Sydney, staying overnight, then flying to Singapore the next morning. We have about 8 hours in Singapore airport, then fly to London, change planes and fly to Cork. On the way back we are staying in London for 4 nights, then flying to Singapore, then on to Sydney, and back home. So alot of flying for a small bub!
I have been told to feed on takeoff/landing to help her ears. I'm breastfeeding so if she gets too worked up on the flights boob usually settles her pretty well. We're flying Singapore Airlines, then Air Lingus for connecting flights. I've heard good things about Singapore airlines for travelling with a baby.
I'm more worried about the travel and time changes messing up her routine. At the moment she sleeps 8-10pm until 6ish, then back to sleep until around 9am. She doesn't really do day naps, more powernaps but the night sleeps make up for it! Has anyone taken bub overseas at that age and did it mess up their days/nights and sleeping patterns?
I'm really concerned about it, so much that it is making me more anxious than exciting about the trip.
