I am going to be flying with my 5-month-old (she'll be 8 months when we travel) from Ottawa, Canada to Brisbane, Australia via Vancouver (approx. 24 hours flying time + stopovers) - yikes! I'd appreciate advice from anyone who's been crazy enough to survive long-haul flights with babies (ie. changing in the little washroom, feeding (she'll be starting solids soon - and can you hold them and breastfeed while the seatbelt light is on, or do you have to use a bottle?), ear problems, what it's like holding a baby while flying (or should I go ahead and book her a seat? If so, do you bring a carseat onboard?) - and any other tips/suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated - thanks! Happy Travels!
Also, I found a website that might be helpful for others flying with little ones - I'm just having a look at it now. http://www.flyingwithbaby.com
