Very young babies are easy peasy to fly with. Breastfeed at take-off and landing, to clear their ears, and they sleep most of the time and are easy to amuse. Babies about 1 or 2 can be more difficult, as they want to explore and play, but if you arm yourself with finger puppets, crayons and paper, some small favorite toys and some new novel ones, flying can be heaps of fun for kids of any age. I've even flown from Australia to the US with 4 of them, aged at 1, 3, 5 and 7 and again two years later when they were 3, 5, 7 and 9. That's like a 20 h trip and we had other smaller connecting flights to get to Australia and to where we were going in the US that end too. Both were amazing trips. Lots of fun.
