- 2 blankets (in case one is used during a "blow out moment" - I know from experience)
- Extra pacifier (in case it drops on the airplane floor) or you can purchase Arm & Hammer pacifier disinfectant wipes...they can be used on anything put in the mouth
- A ziploc bag (gallon size) and plastic grocery bag to use for dirty clothes, bibs, cloths, etc.
- First of all, flying with baby should probably take place after the initial vaccinations (typically 8-weeks). Even adult immune systems take a beating during air travel, imagine the wee little ones!
- Nursing or using a bottle to feed on the take-off and descent is definitely helpful in easing baby's ear adjustments to the cabin pressure
- A Baby Bjorn or carrier is a great way to walk through the airport and keep lil' one comfortable and perhaps even intrigued by the new sights
- A breast pump that uses batteries is extremely helpful in car rides - enabling moms to pump, then bottle-feed baby while the car is still moving - no need to stop at a rest stop for 45 minutes to feed
