No gel allowed on planes


No gel allowed on planes

I was wondering, while reading the news about restricted or completely disallowed carry-on luggage on airplanes, whether mothers are being allowed to carry diapers. Can you imagine a 10-hour flight with your baby without diapers and amusing toys? I have made the trip many times with my children starting when they were a few months old. I needed that bag of tricks with me.

Following the logical crumbs of this issue, I also wondered about gel. Gel bras and gel shoe inserts have been banned from plane travel. Does this mean no gel diapers?

If you have experience with diapers on planes in the past couple of weeks, tell me how it went. Did you see any gel diapers confiscated as potentially dangerous?

I hadn't thought of that, but it seems hypocritical that they wouldn't consider a gel bra, but you couldn't take in your contact lens solution.

They DID consider gel bras. It is my understanding the neither gel bras nor contact lens solution was allowed. That is what led me to wonder about other gels.

Oh, yes ... *ahem* it pays to read carefully, yes? See - RDA could have been there to pass out cloth diapers to those loading planes. Okay, so maybe not ...
