  • If you hold them, they don't need a ticket. The first time my son flew he was only 3 months old. It went fine. He nursed, so that was the hardest part, nursing while flying. But if you feed formula feed her during take off and landing so that the sucking motion will force her ears to pop. If you don't then her ears will hurt and she will scream. Little babies usually do great on planes, its the 2 year olds that are harder because they want to get up and move.

  • is it safe to just have her on my lap though? i dont wanna pay nearly 200 dollars for her seat but im just scared about her not being strapped in. do other passangers usually have problems with it?

  • We didn't fly when they were that little, but have seen others do it. I heard people suggest putting the baby soft carrier on your chest. Probably makes it easier to get everything into the plane and makes them a little more secure.
