Babies: 0 - 3 Months

Flying with Baby - advice needed!

FTM here!  We plan to fly with DS sometime late next month to see my parents.  DH will fly there with us but DS and I will fly back by ourselves. I need to bring my car seat with us.

What kind of gear do I bring?  What gets checked and what is carried on?  What kind of paperwork do I need (birth certificate)?  Any other advice?

  • My son was just over a week old when he flew for the first time (crazy circumstances) I recommend carrying a back pack, its a lot easier to carry the baby without a bag on your shoulder, and they let us take the stroller and the carseat to the gate and we

  • I bf'd my LO during landing or takeoff or had him sucking on paci. At that age, he slept most of the way. I also suggest gate checking stroller and carseat, then you get them back right away. The other option and having a carrier but I found it easier
