Anyone taken a newborn on a plane?

I have taken my children on flights as newborns (all domestic) and have found that it is the easiest of any age to travel with. They basically slept most of the time . It's even easier if you are breastfeeding.

A lot of ladies leave town to have their babies. Just check with your airline as to the minimum age they'll carry babies

I've taken my youngest on domestic flights when he was about 6weeks old. I was breastfeeding and it was a total breeze. People were so helpful!!! Carried my bags, helped me carry nappy bag off the plane. He slept the whole way on both flights id do it again over having to take a toddler anyday!!

Yep DS was 10weeks old when we flew Bris - Mel. And about 18weeks old we did it again. Very easy, same as everyone else has said, he just fed & slept. I just made sure he was feeding when we took off and landed. And I changed his nappy on my lap cos he was so teeny!

Yep flew a fair bit in DD1's first year. It is the most awesome age to fly honestly before 6months is a breeze. they just feed and sleep and u just nurse them. its once they get to about 9months that it starts to become a nightmare

We flew with ds when he was 5 months old... But I'm talking bubs would be 2 - 4 weeks old at time of travel if it happens that I'm utd now!
....Will have to see what happens

DD1 and I flew by ourselves once a month for the first 9 months of her life. Newborns are the BEST age to fly with. 18 mths....not so much!!!!
