I’m flying from NYC to LA with my 20 month old next month. Obviously we haven’t flown with him since he was a tiny baby and I’m a little freaked out about the whole thing. Any tips on making the traveling more bearable? Is there anything I can do to make the time change less disruptive?
Help & suggestions please. I don’t have parents and recently had a kid. I am having trouble in recovery and my daughter is a preemie.

Interviewed for Uber Strategy Manager- what a massive joke. Wouldn't tell me the comp on the first interview. Case studies are 3x the size of any other case study I've done for actual fortune 100 companies. And then interview with everyone and their mother, all who wax eloquent about my solutions.
