  • I have heard that they shouldn't fly before 6 weeks. I am not sure if the airlines enforce it. You will have to bring their birth certificate.

  • You have to call the airline, my ds flew this past week alone to NC. There were lost of people in the line with very small babies to show prove of age. They do fly free with most airlines if they are going to set on lap under the age of two.

  • not that i am aware of. i believe they just reccomen for the baby to be healthy. i would check with your pedi before flying and see if they think it is okay.
