  • I went on a plane with a 3 year old while pregnant. It was hard. I won't lie to you. But so much better than any other possible mode of transportation.

    I think she would have been a LOT better when she was an infant. I took her by train when she was 10 months old and she was an ANGEL then. :)

    You can do it, It will work out. Every child is different, but just try to have a lot of things to keep baby busy with toys and a bottle or binky while you are ascending or descending to help reduce pressure. (if you are nursing, it's good to nurse during takeoff and landing)
