Baby’s first flight is a stressful experience for almost every parent, and it was that same stress which led Alyson Hannigan to tweet the masses last week in search of help.
“I was really nervous,” she admitted during a recent visit to The Late Show with David Letterman. “I went on my Twitter and asked for advice.” What she received in response ranged from bad — “some people said ‘Leave her at home’ or ‘Put her in the overhead compartment,’” Alyson revealed — to good.
“Someone [recommended], and I actually did follow it, ‘Hand out earplugs to all the people around you and say, ‘I hope you don’t need these, but just in case, here you go!””
As it turns out Alyson’s gesture was well-received indeed; Although 6-month-old Satyana was “awesome” on the plane, the same could not be said for a toddler several rows back who spent the entire flight “screaming,” Alyson recalled.
Satyana is the first child for Alyson, 35, and her husband Alexis Denisof.
