I flew three hours home at 6 weeks. Fed baby on the way up and down to try and prevent sore ears. Baby slept for most of the way.



I flew again when son was 8 months. I kept him awake all morning so he'd sleep on the plane (didn't work that well, though he wasn't too cranky) fed him again on the way up and down and had lots of carry on toys.



And anyone who has a crack if bub cries or is difficult, tell to jump out if it is that annoying! Just because you have kids, doesn't mean you aren't allowed to go on holidays and fly and use public transport!

Hi Jillian
Well I just came back from a trip from Las Vegas which that from N.Y. is a 5hr plane ride
my son was 7 months 3 weeks and I thought that he was going to be cranky but you know what he actually wasnt I had him suck on the pacifier when the plane went up and when it landed. I left on a night flight and what I also did is that I didn't let him take no naps during the day so this way he would sleep on the plane.

My husband and I flew with our 6 weeks old daughter from OH to MN to see our family. She did great. Slept the whole time. We even had layovers.
