... on budget airline some more.. lol
I've heard from my friends that flying on SQ with an infant is great and comfortable. Don't travel budget with a young baby, very uncomfortable!!
But we just tested it out via Air Asia with Myla Rae on a short flight to KL. How bad can it be right? It's like 40 mins (or less?) so even if she cries, passengers are less likely to be pissed off since it's a damn short flight. (As opposed to having a cranky baby on a 14 hour flight... plus I used to be one of those people who would give you a real stink eye look if you brought a loud child or crying baby on board... OMG I AM SO SORRY FOR MY IGNORANCE in the past)
Of course no bassinet on a budget flight, so Myla shared a seat with me. I had her in my baby carrier the whole time anyway. AND SHE SLEPT RIGHT THROUGH... but with a LOT of effort on my part though! She's no longer an auto napper... you NEED to help her get to sleep, otherwise she will get super cranky.
|Don't worry ah, this carrier has ergonomically modified seat customized to her size!|
So when we were waiting to board, I fed her. Then put her in my carrier, and freaking walked and bounced my way around the whole room (that room before you board the plane) until she was in deep sleep. Plus I had to make loud and continuous shushing sound with my mouth until I was damn thirsty.
But it worked. LOL.
And the same thing for our flight back as well. Now I just got to gather the balls for a long haul flight.
|Think this travel bed is from Mothercare, dunno, I bought second hand from Carousell|
For her night time sleeps, she was still a good night sleeper... even though not in her crib. I bought one of those little suitcases that opens up to a little baby bed/ccompartment. So she could just sleep in the same bed as us. She loved it! (BUT, a note to self, our next trip, if we use this baby suitcase bed, its better to have a King sized bed, cos the Queen sized beds we had this trip, was a bit of a tight fit... like only 3/4 of my pillow could fit on the bed, so 1/4 dangling off the side).
