  • Taking off isn't bad its the landing and on a 2 hour flight the pressure wont be that bad as you won't be that high. Keep her awake as much as you can and she will suck if she needs to. offer her a bottle or pacifier when landing. While taking off the pressure usually doesn't build up and if so just give her a small drink if she already ate and save the rest for landing.
