Q:

hi Moms,
I'm planning to travel by flight when my baby is 4 month old. travel time will be 1 hr 15 min. is it advisable?? any precautions to be followed before travelling. will it affect his ear drums or something like that bcoz of high pressure.??and I have heard that we have to feed.. can I feed formula that time or I have to breast feed.
I'm really worried kindly suggest or shd I cancel my flight Trip??

you can travel...as your baby is 4 months..you should breastfeed only

hi..  traveling is fine .. wrap it baby from top to bottom ..ears covered with cotton and a cap...
Breastfeeding while take off and landing helps ..
other than that it should be fine if u give  formula feed

Rhituparna Mitra

You can absolutely travel. You should feed (both breast and formula is fine as the sucking action is more important) during take off and landing. Also plug cotton buds in the ear. 👂 pain during flights once starts, doesn't stop till you get off the plane & babies cry endlessly!. So just manage that bit.

hi nithya yes u can fly - my child has been flying since she was 2 months old :) like Rhituparna Mitra mentioned - cotton in ears helps. pls feed baby during takeoff and landing as sucking action helps reduce pain in ears owing to air pressure. if baby is sleeping during landing dont wake up :) have a good flight! and dont be worried! carry toys in ur baby bag! ps i always breast fed her even in the flight as i never expressed via a pump :) i m a typical #CowMom :))))

Hello...
you can travel, no worries... my baby used to travel when she was just 15days... onething to follow is just feed baby while takeoff and land in... and airhostess usually help you for any other issues... always sect window seat as it will be quite spacious and can feed properly.. for changing diapers there will be a cabin with diaper changing table.. fasten belt when you place baby over table.. happy journey 😊
