Feed your baby or give a pacifier. Giving your baby something to suck on during takeoff and landing will help with the pressure change for your baby’s ears.
Pack lightly and bring a baby carrier to be hands free. A baby carrier will make going through security and the entire flight easier.
Put your diaper changing essentials in an easy to grab place. Only bring what you need to the toilet to change your baby on the airplane.
Give your baby as much time to play off the airplane as possible. One parent can board early with the luggage, while the other parent can wait to board giving your baby less time on the airplane.
Take help when it’s offered. There are no prizes for doing it alone.
