Anyone taken baby on plane or considered? ADVICE pls
We have booked to take baby over the Easter to visit family will be a 7hrs flight is there any suggestions on how to keep baby content during travel, how many pre-made bottles & if best to buy ready made/dispoable feeds?
My friend went to states from UK & made 10 bottles prior but said that was more than enough! She got a sky cot & said bring cotton for ears popping but I don't think that would work maybe better to feed during take off/landing.
I also wanted to take car seat & bring sling/carrier instead of stroller. I travelled over 10yrs ago with our 9mnth old he was fantastic! Obviously baby will be much younger (3mnths) & not everyone on a plane is considerate with a screaming baby lol

I had a friend who's baby was older and said the airplane trip was a nightmare b/c her daughter cried most of the flight.  I hope it doesn't happen to u. Good luck and Happy Easter as well

I would take bottled water and powder formula and feeding during flight should be fine. U may also consider using a little cereal so it may last the babe longer so less feedings. Just a suggestion some doesn't want to use cereal at that age. I do though cause my babe has serious spit up problems

Thanks for your comments, seems the younger baby is the better/easier it is to travel?
FRANCIS yours were very young!
CRST I prefer not to give cereal at 3mnths but understand what you mean (did u mean baby rice)?

Yeah I have to give it to my little one she is 3 months because the doc told me to because she spits up a lot. It is a personal preference to use it though. I only do because she spits up

Baby was brilliant I would recommend anyone deciding to travel do so at this stage.  He slept through most of it & the crew were fantastic (if needed bottle warmed) we took 8 bottles never used all but just in case delayed.
Everyone admired his behaviour but overall he is a good baby & sleeps through the night now :)
