San Antonio, Texas
Drew took his first flight Thursday to San Antonio, Texas with Dan and me. I had a meeting to attend as the President of the Georgia Speech-Language Hearing Association. Needless to say, I was very nervous about taking Drew through the airport, going through security, and actually making it through the flight without screaming the entire time! My worries were for nothing--Drew was an angel and security was better than I thought.
Once we got to San Antonio and my meetings started Dan became "Mr. Mom". Poor guy, I'm not sure he knew what he was getting in to. Traveling with an infant with reflux is no easy task! You can't just lay him in a crib provided by the hotel because his head must remain elevated at all times. It's also difficult to ignore his little noises when he sleeps or let him "cry it out" when it's nap time/bedtime. You have to think of all the others in the hotel. So, Drew's schedule was a little off, but I am still impressed with how well he did. He suckered Dan in to feeding him on and off during the day instead of waiting his normal 2 1/2 to 3 hours between feedings. In three nights, he only had one bad one due to issues with his reflux and gas. So all in all, Drew did AWESOME. He must secretly know that he will be flying two more times in the near future!
