Baby traveling by plane first time!!

Hi Everyone!
In about two weeks my (almost one) will be traveling by plane down to Myrtle Bean. The flight is about a hour and a half...we just plan on holding her ourselves because it is such a short flight.

Do you have any advice/tips for me when it comes to babies flying in air planes?

Thank You!!!

Remember to bring her car-seat or have one down there if you will be driving when you arrive. That's a pretty short flight so it shouldn't be too hard. Bring her bottle or sippy cup (or prepare to nurse) during take off and landing to reduce ear discomfort. Bring a sweater or extra blanket with you because planes can be chilly. Check you stroller at the gate and then the flight crew will meet you at your gate when you land with your stroller. Board last! Resist the urge to board early when the flight crew offers, you will get access to the carry on storage but be stuck sitting on the plane an extra 30-40 minutes.
