Kim Kardashian North West

They can definitely afford certain luxuries that most parents only dream of, but would you believe that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West let North West fly without them?!?

Yep. She recently took a flight from New York to Los Angeles -- while Kim and Kanye boarded planes headed for France and Miami, respectively. Ok, so she wasn't alone alone, as her nanny, a bodyguard, an assistant, and a nurse (of course) accompanied her on her trip across the United States.

But still. She's only a year old, and already Nori is traveling by plane without her parents? Doesn't she seem a little young for a journey like that?

I mean, I'm sure the people flying with her are more than qualified to take care of her -- but let's put ourselves in Kim's shoes for a second. Can you honestly imagine sending your 1-year-old off on an airplane without you or your husband?

OMG. I'd be freaking out the entire time. Hell, my kid is 8 years old and I don't think I could bring myself to put him on a plane with anyone other than his dad or my parents -- so there's absolutely no way I would've done it when he was younger!

Kim must totally trust North's "handlers," but allowing your baby to jet across the country without you just seems like such a celebrity thing to do. Couldn't Kris Jenner have stepped up to the plate and flown in to pick her up, or something? Or one of Kim's sisters? I know they all have crazy schedules, but you'd think one of them could've helped out and flown with that baby.

Maybe I'm overreacting about this, but every time I even think about that little girl boarding such a long flight without her mom and/or dad, I can't help but feel a little bit sorry for her. Nannies, first class flights, and a ridiculous privileged lifestyle are no match for a child's mom and dad. Period.

Would you ever let your baby fly without you?
