  • It is perfectly fine. Just make sure to bring one of your little ones favorite toys, a pillow, and a blanket. Also, I would suggest bringing something for him or her to suck on. A sippie, a paci, a bottle, something. When that little they cannot pop their own ears and it can be quite painful. I took my one year old on a plane and gave her a paci or her sippie, she slept the whole time.

  • DH and I took our DS to Sydney to meet DH's family when he was 8 months old. We live in NY, so it's a VERY long flight. Don't forget the car seat! :)

  • Yes it should be just fine. Babies fly internationally all the time.
