Book business class on a wide body airplane, fly on a 787, book minute suites at the airport. I think 4 months is an easy age depending on how well your baby sleeps. It’s the 12-18 months that become really hard.

Thank you!

We had good luck at that age and attempted to time take off and landing with feedings or naps. The flight staff are generally helpful and sympathetic to parents with infants. The only other advice I would offer is to ignore and quickly forget any rude people that you encounter…remember, you have to go home with the fussy baby and the other people on the flight will go on about their lives and you’ll never see them again.

Following, currently planning for a winter trip and expecting in the summer

How long of a flight? We took our 4 month old on an 11 hour flight. Had our nursing pillow with us and packed as light as possible with minimal carry-ons. Time the feeding for takeoff and landing. We booked our flights to align with his bedtime so it worked out well. Not sure if you/your wife are breastfeeding but that helped as the baby was latched on for a large portion of the time he was awake.

Will be about 4.5 hours but direct thankfully! Good call on timing feedings as much as we can. Thanks!

How do people feel about continuing to send money for the war. I 100% support Ukraine but we are providing so much more than the entire EU and we have our own problems at home. I feel for Ukraine but how about using that $40b to fly baby formula here if they are getting stuck on ships. Or programs for the homeless or drug abuse. Why can’t we expect EU to match us and really contribute more given it’s their backyard. We can’t be the bank for all wars.

Random question but do you let your kids hang out in your bedroom and use your master bath if applicable? My kids always seem to want to use our bathroom instead of theirs and my spouse doesn't care but I grew up with my parent's room basically being off limits and think I'd prefer it that way.
