  • Pacifier, breast feeding, bottle feeding, anything that makes baby swollow....Especially descending, coming down, I believe, but it is best to have baby suckle on something during take-off and landing, both.....Has to do with change in air pressure.........Even though the cabin is pressurized.......

  • If baby takes a pacifier I highly recomend that. DD was too excited to nurse on decent and take off and she did not take artificial nipples. Take some soft books, rattles, that sort of thing. I flew with AA and they are so nice. Not sure about other airlines but AA lets you take your carry on, a personal item (took a portable DVD player/tv), a diaper bag, a stroller, and a carseat. I gate checked the stroller and carseat.
