Hi Jinita.. first take assistance from your flight.. they will help you in priority checkin and also will assign one person who can carry your bags and you just need to manage baby...
hope you have bassinet seat as that will help you sit freely while baby lies in bassinet... inform ur flight you are traveling with infant so they would be able to help you in all ways... you can feed baby in flight and while taking off And landing time you should feed so babies don’t feel air pressure in ears if they are taking feed... also by the time you will travel your baby will be almost 6 months.. apart from feed try giving mashed banana to baby so tummy will be full.. give cerelac it fruit purées.. many flights have packed fruit / vegetable purees as infant food you can take that or carry cerelac or similar to feed baby...

Keep your diaper bag, wipes, extra pair of clothes, babies medicines all handy and within your reach...

Richa would surely contact you for more help
One question.... do they allow stroller till gate or the rules are different for each airlines.
And can we check in car seat over and above our luggage?

You gonna enjoy your journey ..nothing to be worried..but meanwhile in the trip of 25; -30 hrs be involved with your kid ..and keep talking to him...and if you have introduced bottle to your kid then keep stock of breast milk this will help you to pass some hours happily...and no doubt baby got tired in travelling so whenever you reach give long sound sleep to your baby this is most important neither ....and stay positive because positive vibes leaves positive impacts to babies
