The flight up to Cairns was not too bad, but not too great.
Our flight up to Sydney was delayed by almost an hour, so the baby got a cheeky feed in the 'parents room' of the airport, which was me sitting on a sink. She also hadn't had a nap all morning, and was hungry and thirsty. And probably a little confused as to what on earth was going on.
As we were on the plane getting ready to take off from Sydney, the baby started getting antsy and whingy. We tried the teething gel and butt pats, but it didn't get any better. In fact, it got worse. The nurofen didn't help either.
For the first half hour of the flight, she was 'that baby' that people complain about after a flight.
Luckily, she passed out for 45 minutes after that. And the guy sitting next to us was really understanding (even though he'd been awake for something like 30 hours after flying in from Thailand). And she was buckets of sunshine as soon as we landed!
