I just flew with my son, he was 7 weeks at the time. The airlines are great and you can take a stroller and car seat all the way to the gate with you, which helps. I dont know if your nursing, but I nursed him going up and coming down, which really helped his ears, he didnt fuss at all. The only other thing that really helped was I got one of those baby carriers (the one that looks like a backpack on front) and used that to carry him around. They dont make you take it off to go through security, so that gives you hands free. I still took the stroller and put all our stuff in it so I had him in the carrier and just had to push a stroller. It really went well. Good luck!
