Ab Dilli Door Nahin...

We are back from a short outstation trip. Thanks all for your good wishes, I managed to successfully scrape through. The biggest challenge for me was to restrict Punch to half a berth as I was sharing a berth with her. As she is used to sleeping on a sprawling double bed and is usually found (in the morning) at the exact opposite direction of which she slept the previous night, I was worried. The first time it was tough, she kept on changing sides and banging her head onto my head and I was holding on to the suitcase below whenever she used more force..Thankfully, on the return journey, she was ok, I mean very less banging on my head...She kept on loitering around the compartment and made us very tired.

Now comes the next trip..Yes, we are off to apni Dilli for a short vacation..I need your good wishes this time too as it is going to be Punch's first trip on an aeroplane..Please send a silent prayer for the airline which is accommodating us and our co-passengers...Tips/ideas are welcome..So if you are in Dilli and you see a greedy fat lady eating chaat for breakfast, lunch and dinner and eating as if not eaten for ages and a troublesome baby trying to taste that chaat...then you have found me..

what helps the most during any travel is to take a small coloring book and some crayons. Also a portable DVD player will keep them in their seat for atleast an hour. The Philips 1 has very good backup. I usually carry 3 Nursery Rhymes CDs. While flying, don't forget to put some cotton in punch's ear. It will help against the pressure drop. If she likes to suck on a lollipop thats a good idea too. I'm sorry.. I don't have an idea abt ur baby's age. :) happy journey.
