We went on our first official family vacation in July 2014. We went to New York for 6 days 5 nights. We also have traveled home to see my family twice.

The baby did great in the airport. As soon as we got on the plane it was different. He was confined to sitting on our laps in a small space. It took him a few minutes to relax and then he was sleep! Slept almost the whole plane ride every time.

We made sure to give him his bottle, cup or a pacifier when the place takes off and lands. This helps with his ears. Babies need to suck on something so that their ears do not start to bother them. I didnt know this when I took our first solo flight in April and as soon as we landed the baby started screaming. Now that I know better, I wanted to share this little tip with others. I hope it helps you!
