    What's the youngest you have ever taken a baby on a flight?

    My son was almost 3 months when he first flew. So much easier when they're little. They just sleep!

    We flew from Cairns to Melbourne and return when DS was 3 months old. He did well on the way up on the first flight but struggled with his ears (despite feeding) on the way down. He slept the whole return flight.

    3 months here too. From Sydney to Korea (10 hour flight). Slept most the way there but was a nightmare on the way back because of other babies

    I think DS was only a few months old. I would have preferred to wait until he was a bit older...I was concerned about him being in close proximity to so many people in an enclosed space, as there was a lot of whooping cough going around at the time.

    Anyway, in my experience, the younger a baby is, the easier it is to travel with them. Young babes are usually quite content with sleepy cuddles and milk Make sure you offer a feed at take-off and landing to help with bubs ears, and keep nappies/wipes in a place which is easily accessible.

    Definitely pack spare clothes for your baby AND yourself (in case he/she vomits/pooplodes on you).

    Also take a baby carrier - it's a lifesaver at the airport when checking in etc, and it's great for settling bub on the plane. We flew for six hours when DS was older (11 months or so) and he would not settle. Popped him in the ergo and walked up and down the aisle a few times and he went out like a light.
