Before George and I had kids, we would randomly pick up and go somewhere, whether that be the nearest beach or the nearest casino. Fast forward 5 years, we’ve added 2 kids and 1 dog. When I agreed to have more children, I DID NOT agree to stop traveling. It may take a lot more effort and coordination but we can still make it happen and absolutely have.
A good friend of ours is getting married on May 2nd so we’re headed to the Cayman Islands this weekend for a destination wedding. We’re only bringing the baby because he can’t talk yet (joking), but he is the easiest to travel with. This isn’t his first flight but he’s getting more and more active by the day so I’m a little nervous. Now that I think about it, he’s been on an airplane every month of his life, with the exception of his first. Anyways, he has quite an opinion and hates nursing covered up so this should be interesting. I purposely scheduled our flight at 8am with the hopes that he’ll sleep most of the way.
When we flew from New York to San Fransisco in February, the flight left at 8pm. By 8:30, Maddox and I were curled up in our lie-flat seat snoozing away. A sleeping baby is a quiet baby!
The wedding is at Rum Point but we’re staying in Georgetown because I’m not keen on a 30-45 min drive through a country I’m not familiar with the morning of our flight home. TSA pre-check can’t help you in another country. It’s a quick 3 day trip with a 1 hour time change.
We’ve been to the Grand Cayman before but only via the Disney Cruise . We’re renting a car so I’m excited to drive on the opposite side of road, something I’ve never actually done! I’m looking forward to beach workouts, a fruity drink, the sand in my toes and watching two really great people say “I do”.
Here are a few of the staples that are nursing friendly and easy to pack. Plus they fit my quads. What more can you ask?
