  • Unfortunately when traveling with a small baby, at some point you will be the lady with a crying infant. Don't expect perfection, otherwise you are just going to be disappointed. I would feed on the take off and landings, to avoid ear pain. Besides that, be prepared for a bit of stress, 3 months is so young to be doing all of that. Best of luck to you!

  • Google it and see if theres a Dummies book on flying with infants. Get all the information you can! How long will you be in the air each time? Ive found a few good websites on it. I'll let you know when i find them again.

  • take lots of paci's, it will help with the air preasure... other than that.. just make sure to stretch yourself out.. cause your tension is transfered to the baby.. so if your stressed, guess who is going to have a melt down..
