Hi all you experts! I have just booked a flight for March and I must say it isn't even the end of Jan and I am petrified. I haven't flown in many many years due to my high anxiety level and fear of flying altogether. What makes it worse is by the time I will be flying out I have a 4 year old, will be her first time on a plane and I will be 6 months pregnant. This heightens my fears even moreso. I have never trusted the care of my daughter with anyone, and I guess surrendering control of not only my life, but hers as well into strangers hands has me so freaking nervous! I do apologize for sounding so darn silly! My sister is flying here to my state fly back out with me since she worries of me being preggo and with a toddler flying alone, however, she isn't the best at easing worries haha. Any helpful tips for this scared mom to maybe help deal with all of this a bit better? I am telling you guys, I am sweating and heart racing as we speak! I did not do Early check in since my sister bought her ticket seperate for us so we will wait until the 24 hr before to do the check in and hope we three get to sit together. Hopefully my daughter and I get a comforting visit from the SW bear I saw floating around for another fearful flyer like myself. LOL! But seriously, how do you frequent flyers do it? Any advice helpful. Also parents, how do you manage keeping a toddler busy on a plane, especially a super curious one like mine?
