Any advice on flying with an 11 month old?

We are taking a trip in a week and im looking for ways to help keep his ears from hurting. I have read letting him suck something during take off and landing. Any other ideas? Thanks mamas!!!!

  • I don't recommend gum or a baby. My 4 year old still chokes on it occasionally. Have him suck a bottle or pacifier during take off and landing. Bring snacks! Graham crackers, goldfish, cheerios, a lollypop, whatever he likes that will keep him occupied. You really just want him to be quiet and still for as long as possible. Bring small toys too. Good luck!!

  • Breastfeed on take-off and landing. None of my babies or my grandbaby ever had a bottle or pacifier. Sit yourself so you are next to your husband and window or aisle.

  • Being judgmental, which she wasn't, wont put her kids in danger. Your child could choke to death and you know it. Why would you risk that?
