Look of the Day

Happy Friday ladies!!! I can't believe its the last weekend in October! We have a vacay coming up next week so we'll be spending our weekend running tons of last minute errands before our first trip with baby Ava in tow! Any and all tips are welcomed! We are flying internationally and our pediatrician recommend the flu shot for Ava but I opted not to get it, eeeek!! Did you ladies give your babes the flu shot?!  On another note here's a casual look I wore last week I wanted to share with you....
Urban Outfitter oversized denim shirt, Zara tee, J brand jeans, Steve Madden boots ( These were the ones I wore to the pumpkin patch last week a lot of you asked about...link posted below) and Alexander Wang bag.

You can get the look with these pieces...

  2. Love your outfit! Wish I could fit into jeans like those these days - 17 weeks pregnant!! Told you - you are going to increase the population. :-D I don't know about flu shots for babies, but I opted out on flu shots for myself during pregnancy and insisted my hubby get one. You should be fine as long as you and your husband are healthy and just keep Ava away from sick people.

  3. Love you casual look! flying with babies can be done! A few things . . . buy some new books, quiet toys and do not let her see them before the flight. Bring tons of snacks, her fav blankie or cuddly, a few outfit changes (we have had a few blow-outs on flights!) and layer her so that you can bundle her up if cold or strip if too hot. iphone and ipad are a given. we always bought an extra seat because you need that extra space (esp. international)...for the flu shot, I would highly recommend her getting it; airports, planes and people from foreign countries are not good for a baby with no protection. The actual flu virus is awful and very dangerous for young babies . . . good luck! love your blog

  6. I would DEFINITELY recommend the flu shot especially before flying internationally. The side effects and damages from a baby getting the actual flu are much scarier than the flu shot itself. Our daughter still got the flu her first year but it was a mild mild case....some of her little friends shes around got it at the same time with no flu shot and they were hospitalized.

  7. I like how you've styled the chambray shirt a little differently than what you usually see. Cute, rocker, casual vibe! :)

  8. No way would I give my baby a flu shot. I think you made the right decision. Just read about it...read the vaccine insert and the ingredients. I will never give it to my children...or myself. I have 2 sons and we have traveled a lot (domestic and international) and I have never given them the shot.
    have a great trip!!! :)

  10. I have 3 kids under 8 years old and we all get the flu shot every year (not the mist) and haven't gotten the flu since we started getting them. You cannot get sick from the flu shot. When my baby was 2 months old and not old enough for the shot she caught the flu virus and had a very high fever and was hospitalized for 4 days so save yourself some grief and do it:) I would not wish that any Mom:) Good Luck and have fun on your vacation!

  13. I have traveled with my baby boy starting at 8 weeks old, he is great at traveling! he is about 5 months and we fly internationally too. With a baby if you can buy a extra seat thats the best, if not try to fly around a nap time or bed time. If you don't have a extra seat bring a pillow so that when they nap you lay the pillow across you and your hubby and let them lay on it. It always helps us so that your not holding them for a 6-8 hr flight. We also have him in casual clothes that are comfy! Lots of toys all different ones and some apps on the ipad help! We didn't get the flu shot and he is fine!

  15. Hi Andee,

    Don't stress too much about not getting Ava the flu shot. Even if you were to have gotten it, it would still take another 4-6 weeks for it to take effect. Also, the flu shot is only 60% effective. I'm also hesitant to give my 2 1/2 year old the shot as well.

    If you're still breast feeding, it may help to relieve ear pressure for Ava if you nurse her during take off and landing. Bring a baby carrier too! I love both the Ergo and Beco carrier's.

    Best of luck on Ava's maiden flight!

    xxx,
    Jen

  17. Our first international flight was an eight hour flight from NYC to Madrid, a five hour layover and a two hour connecting flight to Rota. I nursed my son as much as he would allow me to and I held him the entire time (I was given a lap belt (even though he had his own seat, as you have to pay for baby's seat during international flights). Also, at 25, I've never had a flu shot and I have never had the flu. My boys are five and three and they have also never had the flu shot or the flu. The only person in our home to have had the flu is my husband and his job requires him to get the flu shot every single year (he's active duty). I'm sure your baby will be fine! Safe travels!

  20. Traveling with babies isn't nearly as scary as you're thinking! My 16 month old has flown 9 times (3 one way flights, 6 round trips) with her first being at 6 weeks old. If you're still breastfeeding, do that during take off (but only if she's awake- she won't feel anything in her ears if she's already sleeping!) and just have plenty of snacks/toys/shows on the iPad or laptop to keep her entertained. Feel free to roam the aisles if she gets fussy at all...other passengers and flight staff have always been very understanding every time we've flown. I've even had flight attendants offer to take Sailor for walks so that I could have a little break.
    The important thing to remember is: relax. She will feed off of your mood! If you're relaxed, she's much more likely to be relaxed. And have fun! This is such a fun experience to share with your little one!

  21. Hi Andee , I do not give flu shots to my kids , I have 3 under 9 and we travel very often national , and international I used to travel every other weeken fron NY to LAX for 8 months with my first born he was 6 months , my advice is bring you own blanket, and little pillow ,whipe the tray with desinfecting wipes they sale then in travel packs , bring your baby Tylenol and a thermometer always Carrie extra outfits for baby and you in the diaper bag , disinfect with the wipes where the baby may touch trust me there is a lot of nasty viruses and bacteria in the planes

  22. looking gorgeous as usual :) i sadly have zero tips for traveling with a babe but hope you have a fabulous vacation!!

  23. Ah, the flu shot is such a toughie. I personally do give it to my kids because the odds of a bad reaction from the shot are far less than getting extremely sick from the flu. I was on the "I don't get the shot and I've never gotten the flu" train until...I got the flu. And it was so awful that as soon as it was over, my OB ordered an ultrasound to see if my baby had survived it (she did, thankfully). Definitely a decision that every family needs to make for itself. (Although I do want to chime in and say that you physically cannot get the flu from the shot; a basic immunology search will show you this.)

    Have been loving your IG pics from vacation! Looks like you had a blast :) I'm sure Ava was a little angel for you!

    Please do not let your babe get a flu shot! Or any vaccines for that matter. They are a complete hoax and what comes of them is horrifying.

    Have a great vaca!
