Manisha frankly I havent traveled with my baby before 2 months as I myself didnt feel ready with my babys routine. If you kind of by now have a hang of your babys routine I would suggest carry a feeding cover & enough wollens for you & your baby. You need to look after yourself in terms of what you eat as well to ensure your baby doesnt get affected. Incase you can time, try feeding the baby while take off & landing so if any discomfort to the baby can be eased off. Carry precautionary medicines for cold/fever & upset stomach. Thats what I can think off. Hope this helps.

Yamini, I personally have a major issue with ear popping & keep sucking a sweet & put nasal drops every few hours while flying. For my 4yr old son I didnt do much till he was about 2 as he seemed ok. But mormally would keep his milk bottle or water sippy cup handy for take off & landing. Now I give him a sweet/lollipop or something to drink using a straw. Depending on how old your child/baby is you can choose one of these options. To keep them a little distracted too helps. For me cotton balls never worked & my son would just remove them but some find this too useful. Hope you find this helpful.

Nirmala a lot of women feed in the toilets but personally i find it too cramped & unhigenic. I would use a feeding cover & feed at my seat itself. I would really not think too much whether its embarassing or not. Additionally request in advance for the first row seat along with a bassinet so that just gives you a little more space with arranging & adjusting position plus a bassinet to sleep your baby when arranging things. Keep the inflight staff informed for any help that you might need for traveling alone with infant. I know mumbai airport has a special service called pranam gvk of course at additional cost but they help with every damn thing at the airport till you board incase traveling out of mumbai. Hope this helps.
