One of the worst things about being a mom is seeing your little one in pain. And cutting four teeth at once definitely did a number on my little girl. Like I do with most ailments, I try to go the natural route before reaching for the medicine bottle.

Flying Green

Our Little Jet Setter

We recently took Baby A on a cross-country flight to San Diego to visit her grandparents and other family and friends on my husband’s side of the family. I was a little nervous about flying with a 4 1/2 month old, but I have to say, it wasn’t that bad. I tried to stay as eco-friendly in the air and on vacation as I do at home. Here are a few of the little lifesavers I packed:

 

 

 

  1. Aden & Anais bamboo blanket- We literally don’t leave home without one of these. They are big, soft, breathable and beautiful.
  2. Lifefactory silicone teether – Made of food-grade silicone so you don’t have to worry about BPA. This ring bends and is skinny enough that it fits in tiny hands and mouths.
  3. MAM pacifier & holder – Sucking during take-off and landing helps baby’s ears so we brought A’s favorite paci from MAM. We love it because it’s BPA free and orthodontically designed. You can attach it to the holder and clip it on so it doesn’t fall on any dirty floors. We also removed the pacifier ring and used the holder with the teething ring.
  4. Dapple Pacifier wipes – Airports and airplanes are dirty so it was nice to have these individually wrapped wipes that are all-natural, food grade, fragrance-free and preservative-free.
  5. Earth’s Best Chlorine-free wipes – I make our own wipes at home, but the container is a little too clunky for my diaper bag. So these wipes from Earth’s Best are my go-to when traveling.
