10 Signs You've Survived Flying with a BabyHave you flown with a baby and lived to tell the tale?  Those of us who have done the deed know that there are quite a few indignities involved in the process.  But we wouldn’t trade it for the world!

Here are the top 10 signs you’ve survived flying with a baby:

  1. Every time you board a plane, everyone silently (and sometimes not so silently) prays you won’t sit down next to them.
  2. Your baby may only weigh 8 pounds, but your luggage now weighs 80.
  3. You thought about packing goodie bags for fellow passengers to apologize for your child’s presence. Then you thought better of it.
  4. You expect to get groped before every flight. Because the TSA has a thing against Enfamil. And diaper cream.
  5. A Cheerio explosion happened in your row.
  6. No changing table on board? C’mon. Real moms don’t need changing tables!
  7. You own 17 contraptions for rolling, pushing, or pulling car seats through airports.
  8. In-flight entertainment? What is that? You haven’t watched a movie on board since your first child was born.
  9. A flight delay just might be your undoing. A flight delay and a diaper explosion definitely would be.
  10. After each flight, you swear you will never do it again. Until next month.
