I'm taking my 8 month old daughter on a plane with me for the first time on sunday I"m very excited to have this experience with her. Its not a long flight so I thought thats good for her first time, well my mom keeps telling me she needs to suck on something so her ears don't popped so I was going to give her her bottle on the way up but does she need something on the way down I can't remembe if your ears pop on the way down or not. Let me know what you think also if you have any other tips let me know thank you!!

  • You need something on the way up and the way down...lots of toys and snacks....or a comfy blanket and a smal pillow for your arm if they are planning on sleeping on te flight...your arm will go dead
