Idiot Gives His Son Ativan On A Plane

Parenting FAIL!

In an anonymous “Parenting Secrets” column, a father sheepishly admits to drugging his son on a red-eye flight, but not with the usual suspects like Gravol or Benadryl, but with Lorazepam, the Schedule IV Controlled Drug better known as Ativan!!

Things You Don’t Need To Pack When Traveling With Baby…

Things You Don’t Need To Pack When Traveling With Baby

While it may feel sometimes when traveling with a baby that you’re lugging along everything and the kitchen sink, Have Baby Will Travel’s founder, family travel expert Corinne McDermott shares items you definitely DO NOT need to cram into your carry-on luggage…

Airplane seat covers: (pictured above)
When you’re boarding a plane with a child in tow, you barely have a second to get organized, and you now have to slip on a seat cover? Never mind the fact that you won’t have time to do this, it doesn’t even cover the most germ-laden areas, the arm rests and tray tables.

Get yourselves seated, then give the arm rests, tray tables, and safety card a quick wipe with an antibacterial wipe, then make sure baby keeps her hands out of her mouth.

Airplane “hammocks”: (pictured below)
This gets surprisingly good reviews on various online retailers, but even if you manage to install it correctly, I can’t see it being entirely safe. If you can’t depend on the guy sitting in front of you not to give you the stink eye, how can you depend on him not to suddenly recline accidentally or on purpose?

Baby Carrier/Car Harness: (pictured below)
Don’t. Just don’t. If you’re traveling by car, your baby needs to be safely secured in an approved and properly installed car seat. Yes, car seats are a hassle to lug along when you’re traveling, but what is a little inconvenience when it comes to your baby’s safety. Bring the car seat. Or rent one when you get where you’re going. Or take public transit so you don’t have to worry about it. But please, please, don’t put your baby in something that markets itself as a carrier/car seat.

Great Tips For Traveling With A Baby

tips-for-traveling-with-baby.jpg

Traveling with a baby can be such a hassle!

But, don't you worry, because Have Baby Will Travel founder Corinne McDermott shares her 5 Ts To Happy Travel With Your Tots:

Timing…

…is everything! Try to schedule your flights for when baby will be sleepy and likely to nap.

Toys…

…keep little ones busy with a mix of new and old favourites. Wrapping them adds to the excitement and duration of baby’s interest.

Treats…

You may call it bribery. When you’re flying with small children it’s called smart parenting.

Toiletries…

Keep clean and prepared for anything with a mini-drugstore in your carry-on. Don’t forget the wipes!

Temperament…

Babies get tense when their parents do, so try to keep cool and let the usual stresses of air travel roll off your back.

Make like a boy scout and be prepared and you’ll be set to fly today’s less-than-family-friendly skies!
