Hey everyone, 29 year old adult baby desperately looking for some creative thought and advice.
I have a nuk 5 pacifier (all white) , onsie and diapers at home. I love my binky but travel quite often and only get to use my nuk 5, onsie and diapers every two weeks. I work away from home, known as fly in fly out. I fly to my work place and spend 11 days away from home before flying back and spending three days at home, after the three days I then fly back to work. All my adult baby gear stays at home except a nuk 3 binky which currently travels with me on carry on. I do not travel with any checked in luggage as all my clothing, toiletries etc remain at my work accomodation.
I like to sleep with a binky and the Nuk 3 just doesn't compare to a nuk 5. I am keen to buy a second Nuk 5 and keep it hidden at my work accomodation.
Three weeks ago I was flying back home and had my nuk 3 safely tucked away in the depths of my backpack. Before going through check in, a few workmates and myself relaxed at the airport coffee shop and had something to eat before proceeding through screening.
We got to screening and to my nervous surprise I was pulled aside and my bag searched while friends, colleagues and other passengers walked past behind me. The security attendant said it looked like I had something v shaped and metallic like scissors and at once I knew it was the silly liitle tripod I keep for my portable camera. Nevertheless the attendant proceeded to pull everthing out my bag including to my embarrassment my nuk 3 binky in clear view of everyone! All I could do was stand red faced and pretend it was from one of my nephews or possibly from a child of my own if noone was the wiser. I may have imagined it but am pretty certain the guy paused for the briefest moment when he pulled it out to give it consideration.
I want to bring a Nuk 5 with me but what if I get caught with it, how do I explain?
I was thinking about buying a custom guard nuk 5 and bringing the white nuk 5 with me as it is at least not as babyish. I was also thinking I could maybe keep it in my pocket or even hide it in my underwear going through check in. However if they see something in my pockets when I walk through the scanner and ask me to empty my pockets, won't this be even worse?
What's your thoughts. How best can I get my Nuk 5 safely through the airport, and what is a very good excuse to give work colleagues (main concern) and airport security if it is discovered?
Ps the silly tripod no longer travels with me.
