    Default Advice fpr flying with a 4 month old

    I am going to visit a friend this week and am extremely nervous about flying with DS who is 15 weeks.

    He is BF but I am wondering whether I should give him EBM on the flight or whether it will be ok to BF him during take off and landing.

    Anyone have any tips and tricks for making a flight pain free for all (or at least minimimal!)

    I have always breastfed for take off and landings and ask to be seated next to a spare seat - gives you more room for bubs things, your bag of tricks, even changing etc
    Qantas have always been most accomodating with this

    I breastfed my 7mo ds quite easily when we flew for 2 hours to and from queensland. Quite uneventful really. Flying with little ones who don't crawl or walk is actually easy. Flying with an active toddler ... not that's a challenge!

    There are some tips in the 'Travelling with Kids' section you might find helpful too.

    DS was 4mths when we flew with him to Europe! It was soo easy I couldnt believe it. Staff is extremely helpful as well as generally the other passengers. I BFd him during take off and landing - easy as. As everyone is sitting and kinda concentrating on the doings of the plane no one notices your doings anyway. Take a blanket or wear lose clothes so you can cover up a little if that makes you feel more comfortable. You'll be fine, 4mths is probably the best age to fly!

    Enjoy it I flew with DS1 when he was that age and it was great! Do you have a good carrier to wear him in?
