i took my son flying at 6 months, and i didn't need much. just get a small backpack, you can put a couple of books and favorite toys in there. also, don't forget bottles, with no water, and formula if you're FF. if you bring Formula, make sure it's unopened. i've found the Enfamil travel packs are awsome. make sure you get water after you go through security, and it's enough time between when you buy it and your LO's feeding time so it's not too cold. if your LO takes a binky, that's great so that while you're taking off and landing, it helps with the pressure on his ears. if not, then try to make it so that feeding time is take off time, so he can suck on something.
