I took my son to fly at 2 months old and he was a perfect angel...infact the people on the airplane said how cute and well behaved he was. I just made sure he was sucking on something...pacifier, bottle, boob during take off and landing and he was fine. They have changing tables in the bathrooms if you need them and it's best to get a window seat because they will bump into you and your baby going up and down the isle with the drink cart. Make sure you have a toy that keeps her interest and play with her. Or...as a last resort you can test out giving her a dose of benedryl to see how she does and if it makes her sleepy you will know that you can use that right before a flight and she'll probably sleep the whole way. I know some moms in my MOPS group that said they did that...but I personally don't like giving my baby unnecessary medications.
