    Tips for Flying with an Infant?

    Advertisements
    Does anyone have any tips? Peyton will be 6 months old when we fly to Hawaii. Our total trip will be 14+ hours. And I'm gonna sound like a big mean horrible parent, but does anyone have any tips of how to get her to sleep the whole way? LOL

    TIA

    When we fly from here to the mainland it's always a red-eye flight so that helps a lot!

    What time are you flying out?

    Ok. Thanks! We have an appt on the 23rd of September so I will ask then, and if they say no I'll just get it myself. I don't want her to sleep the whole time, but I would like her to be good and not embarrass DH and I screaming the whole time

    That will only be 2 weeks(less than actually) before we leave. Our neighbor has an infant scale as well so we could just use that right?

    I'll probably give a little less too. I've heard that it is really easy to overdose a baby on Benadryl I really don't wanna hurt her!
