My hubby and I are going back to California to see our family during xmas...its a 10 hour drive and we are debating whether to drive or fly...it would be nice to fly only because its a one hr flight..but im a bit worried about taking the baby on a plane...has anyone flown yet with their babies????
a few of us have, Ashtree, Amber and I have taken the babies and all the babies have done well. If he sleeps before it takes off, more than likely he'll stay asleep...if the pressure started bothering our ears, i gave him a bottle...but he didn't cry not once during the 2 hour flight or layovers.
We just flew last week. 3 hr 15 min flight, 3 hr layover 1 hr 20 min flight, hour car ride to our destination! Then the same on the way back! I nursed at take off and landing because of the ears... Tried to change him at airports instead of on the plane. Many planes do not have changing stations. He slept most of the time. On the way back, he slept for almost the entire 3 hr flight. The only caution I would have is about constipation. Even adults get constipated with air travel. Joel got constipated and though he has gone a few times since, is still stopped up as far as I can tell. 1 hr flight is awesome. I think you would be surprised how fast it goes and how easy it is... We have a 14 hr drive for Christmas if we go to DH's parents. Ug... That will be interesting!
It was much easier then i thought! It would probably be better to fly its much faster. Just make sure you have a paci and feed on take off or before just keep him sucking. Bring some kind of caring device it helps alot!.
well if u are paying for the seat then you just put the carseat in the regular plane seat....if you are carrying him as a lap baby, then you can wrap the carseat in thick plastic garbage bag, label it and check it like luggage.
it's free to have him as a lap baby and honestly since ur not going far, i wouldn't pay for him to fly, just carry him on ur lap and check his carseat like luggage.
