  • Well they can fly at any time. With all the germs I wouldn't recommend before 6 months because of the immune system. I flew with my daughter at 7.5 months with no adverse effects. We went to germany. 15 hours total travel time lol.

  • i got on a plane with my daughter when she was 6 weeks, she surprisingly did really well, didn't cry once, I'm hoping this next time she will be the same :) also what can help is if you choose a time where your baby takes her nap, that way she sleeps through it :)

  • You can take your baby on a plane at any time, I would recommend using a paci when the plane is taking off and landing, the sucking will keep her ears from popping.
