Q:

Yes absolutely. Keep feeding the baby during take off and landing. Enjoy the trip.

yes absolutely safe. I traveled with my baby during her 5th month. Most of the airports have nursing room. So you can feed baby there. Also..once you get inside flight...can feed baby. carry a thick big dupatta to cover while feeding. Also.. cover baby ears with cotton.. during takeoff n landing... some babies get irritated due to atmospheric pressure difference. That's quite normal. Mine didn't cried as she was feeding and sleeping. Flight journey will be much more better than bus.

And one more thing... domestic flight...inside flight the toilets won't be big enough to change diapers of your baby. So change diapers before checking inside your flight. In case baby poops... take help of your hubby or someone with you inside toilet. Happy journey.
