Q:

my baby is 1 n half month old.can we both travel by flight or not???



Priya

Good question. Is it a must to travel. Baby is still young and due to the air pressure it may cause pain and discomfort. Is it possible to wait few months. No real harm but to be safe. Sheeba Rizvi, Reema Tibrewala tagfwd

hi tashika & neha -awesome q! we shud compile a list of do's and donts for flying with infants :) my baby was 2 months old whn she took her first flt. my elder sister accompanied me - so be sure someone is with u! i used a sling baby carrier all thru the airport - very helpful so pls get used to babywearing (read articles and watch vids on BabyChakra). carry baby bag wth wipes, diapers, napkins, extra clothes, extra top for u, baby blanket, covering sheet, etc etc carry some cotton to plug baby's ears - shudnt be too small that it gets stuck :( carry baby cap. ditch ur purse - carry small purse in baby bag. while taking off and landing u MUST feed baby - the suckling helps with the air pressure that hurts the ears. breast or bottle whatever u like. i wud take a window seat and breastfeed. if baby is sleeping while landing then dont wake up. if baby is awake and doesnt feed, baby's ears will ache and she/he will cry :( airports are usually cold. dress appropriately. pls tag me for any q's regarding air/train travel in india - my childoo is a veteran!!! pls carry a few toys to distract. also since u r travelling with an infant, u r given priority - just walk ahead of the line and they will attend to u first! good luck! happy travels and dont forget to hv fun!

Dear, As Priya Sood mentioned, your baby is very small. At Least give a two months time.
