I Travel With My Son At 6 Weeks And At 3 Months Old
The hardest thing for me was not the plane it was the different security checks. Just make sure you have everything organized. Ds did well on the plane I breastfed him when the plane took off and when it landed so that his ears wouldn't pop

travel with babies
I took a trip to the Caribbean island of Dominican Republic and booked a villa for a family vacation back in `07, had a lot of troubles buying baby gear because I didn`t bring any and expected the place I rented to have something in stock....they didn`t. Out of a thousand villa rental places the only one that caters to babies is called Golden Key Management in Sosua. They got special baby gear for the villa rental service, quite good. baby

You can carry your baby aboard the plane if you don't want to have her in a car seat for the trip or haven't bought a ticket for her. Bring your own car seat and send it through with the baggage. It's the only way to ensure that you are going to use a safe car seat for the trip. You can either remove the cover, send it through in the original box, or you can buy a carrier cover that will protect it from damage. Hold her on your lap for takeoff and landing, and be sure to either nurse or bottle feed while this is going on.

If the baby has a cold, it's best not to take her because the excess fluids will either make her very much in pain or give her permanent damage. Just be sure to get the OK from your doctor or pediatrician before your flight.

Remember that you can't be too prepared. Bring a tote with plenty of diapers and wipes, a couple changes of clothes and blankets. You never know when she will get a soiled diaper that leaks, spits up significantly to ruin her clothes...and maybe even yours.

If you have her in a sling, you will not be able to keep her in it for the flight.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
