Can you rent a crib or pack and play when you get there? As for flying, have a paci or bottle/nurse during take off and landing. Snacks, new toys, and I don't know what it is about the safety brochure, but kids find them fascinating! Will you be bringing a stroller? If so, take it down to the gate with you and gate check it. Makes navigating the airport easier. If not bringing a stroller, I'd suggest wearing baby through the airport. Will you need a carseat when you get to your destination? If so, gate check that as well. We checked DD"s carseat one time and they broke the foam. That was an expensive mistake I'll never make again!
