Sedating your baby for flight

Shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up shut up.

Tending to a young baby can be a very demanding task and the prospect of having to fly with one is even more daunting.

Sure, we laugh, high five, sing songs, and play cars.

We talk, read books, dream dreams, and stare at stars.

If you are traveling with your spouse you can book the entire row of seats and put the baby on the seat near the isle.No parent wants to be the one with a child who is uncomfortable and crying on the airplane, and while I have written about flying with babies and young children several times before, the reality is that lumping advice for flying with “babies” together is really over-simplifying.There is such a huge difference flying with a 6 week old, a 6 month old, and a 12 month old even though they are all “babies”.Remember, no sensible person is going to give you a hard time about any noise or mess your baby makes.However, as a parent, it is your responsibility to do all in your power to prepare for the worse and do your best so that others are not inconvenienced by you or your baby.
