I was so anxious about flying for 8 hours alone with my 6 months old daughter. She is a cranky baby and what they call a high-need baby. She cannot even stay for more than 15 mins in the car let alone 8 hours in a plane!

After checking in our luggages, I went to the custom officer. To my surprised I had overstayed my visa so had to be detained in their office until further notice. I was terrified because it’s almost boarding time and I am holding a crying baby. Luckily they were kind enough to give me leniency seeing that I have an infant with me.

I manage to board the plane within the final call.

Throughout the flight, my girl wouldn’t let me sit. She would only calm down if I walk around the cabin. So I did….It was the longest 8 hours in my life.

When we landed, I couldn’t be happier. It was over! I did it! Tiring yes but Oh so proud of myself!

  • i just love lookig and reading these great things


  • You deserve accolades. You have done it now. Next time, you will be more confident as you will know what to expect. Was the fear factor worse than the actual flight or the other way around?


  • In the end, your survived!


  • Pleased it all turned out well in the end for you.


  • that would have been so hard. baby’s and planes dont mix. lol , if i was on that plane i would have given you a break and hold her for a minute, my sister had her 2 babies on a plane for 3 hours both screamed for 3 hours we had about 5 nice mummies all taking turns holding a baby trying to carm them down. we didnt know these mummies but we were so glad they offered to help.
