We are heading to NY for two weeks with my family. Arya was a fabulous traveler when we meant to New Mexico but a cross country flight is a whole different ball of wax ( such a gross expression), so I’m crossing my fingers and toes she is ok.
Yesterday, I got an email from United asking if we wanted to take advantage of a promotion and switch to business class. I looked at it out of curiosity and it was about 1/4 of the price I expected it to be. I decided to go for it because hey- infant cross country travel is no joke.
Now we are at the airport in the fancy first class lounge. Our flight is delayed and we may be spending the night in New York City but I’m trying not to worry too much until I have to.
I brought a few 8 ounce bottles of pre-mixed formula and airport security was freaking out- even though formula is supposed to be exempt from the three ounce rule.

So they decided I could leave them closed but they had to subject me to a complete pat down and search every inch of our carry on bags. Arya found this to be super entertaining- but I didn’t:
