Journey Precautions With Babies

1. Always feed your baby while take off and landing. Feeding can be bottle or breast. If the baby does not have the mood to take either of them try to give a pacifier.
2. Request for a bassinet. Make sure you get one, it would be lot helpful
3. Try to carry less hand luggage. I would suggest you not to carry a suitcase for hand luggage. Instead carry a very comfortable shoulder bag where you can put all your baby stuff and keep it at your legs in the plane so that you can pick whenever you want.
4. Do carry a stroller. The airlines take and give the stroller at entry of the plane
5. Carry some food for your self. This is must if you are breastfeeding.
6. Don't hesitate to ask help, either the airlines staff or co-travelers
7. Consult your pediatrician and take the list of vaccinations to be given in India.
8. Check your hand luggage at least 3 times before you start
9. I am not aware about water for formula milk, other moms can suggest
10. Meeku flight changes vunnayi kabatti, you can use the break time to change and freshen up the baby.

Also...make sure u get a seat with bassinet. And flight lo middlelo vachetadu choosuku nee seat...Coz venaka ekkuva jerks vuntaadi n kids throw up.

Take ample diapers...almost double the number u usually use. Take tylenol.

Flight take off and landing appudu feed air will not clog their ears...

Dress ur kid in layers coz warm ayithey u can remove layers instead of changing dresses.

If ur baby is on formula feed too, they will not allow water but flight lo piping hot water vuntaadi. Velinaventaney i used to pour it in a feeding time ki correct temp vuntadi. Else u can mix hot n room temp water.

If you are breastfeeding, ippatninchey just appudu formula ichey alavatu chey coz flight changing or travel appudu kudarakapothey u can give him a bottle...
