Paris with a 9 month-old!

Two years ago this month I took my then 4 year and nine month old to France for a month. The airplane trip was fine. The kids slept and played. No big deal. The best thing we did for transporting the nine month old was using a sling. We also brough a cheap umbrella stroller that we didn't care about losing, but the sling enabled us to go places that a stroller couldn't go easily. It would be a good idea to practice using it before the trip as they can feel heavy. The baby can look around when he wants to and sleep comfortably when he needs to. The baby feels close and protected and you can have a good time. I personally wouldn't worry about sights for a nine month old as everyhting will be new and exciting (or not ) anyway. The important thing is that you both can have a good time. Yes it can be done.

I wanted to thank those of you who replied to my message with worthwhile and valuable advice. Isabella (who breastfeeds, eats quite a bit of solid food, and (so far) is a wonderful airplane passenger) will no doubt be a trooper in Paris.

To those of you who left negative messages reagrding children on planes, I will say that some children can be troublesome on planes, but they are children, so it is understandable and fine. Thank goodness that you have (hopefully) chosen not to procreate. -Shawny
