I HAVE NEVER FLY IN PLANE. BUT, WHEN WE TRAVEL I CARRY MY KIDS FAVORITE TOYS, FAVORITE SNACKS, AND I ALWAYS CARRY A PORTABLE DVD PLAYER OR AN IPOD WHERE MY KIDS CAN SEE CARTOONS AND DON'T GET BORED. BUT, SINCE YOU HAVE A LITTLE BABY, THEY SLEEP MOST OF THE TIME SO THERE'S NOT MUCH TO WORRY ABOUT. JUST CARRY A OT OF DIPERS, BURP CLOTHS, XTRA OUTFITS, BLANKETS AND ONE OR TWO TOYS WITH LIGHTS TO DISTRACT HIM/HER WHEN SHE/HE IS A LITTLE UNEASY. HAVE A GOOD TRIP ;)

Bring things to entertain him, move his arms and legs around, and try to have him sucking on a bottle during take-off and landing to avoid ear popping. Good luck!

Entertainment is key. I found these great teethers by Sassy. They are made of mesh, and you can cut up pieces of fruit and put them in the mesh part, close it up. My baby goes nuts over it. Plus, I bought babyfood feeders, they look like a bottle and you put the food in the bottle to feed. It is great for travel, no mess. Make sure you buy the pre made bottles. They are so easy and handy, no mixing is great. Good Luck and have fun.
