Travelling with my 11 months old kid in flight on a journey of 5hrs and later 15 hrs. And I am travelling alone with my kid as my spouse couldn't accompany me. Please suggest the precautions to be taken. I have checked existing parent talk links but, having problem in opening them. Please help me..

Here you go: just one more thg to add. If it's international flight then pls take pram with you as all airlines let them take you till aircraft door so easy life :) and you get free time during immigration 1. Try to take a flight which matches your baby sleep routine. 2. Try to roam around with your baby or take them to baby room as most airports have it these days which will avoid baby to sleep before the flight. 3. Ask the crew to let you enter first or last as per your comfort. I prefer entering in the end so that i sit, feed baby and meanwhile the flight takes off. 4. Keep a pacifier along in case baby doesn't want milk. If baby rejects pacifier too then you can put your finger on his/her tongue to suckle. Ensure your hands are clean. 5. Don't carry too much stuff in your hand to keep them free so that it's easy for you to manage baby and some stuff if needed. Please don't shy away to ask for help from crew. 6. A change of clothes, a warm shawl to cover since planes are pretty cold, few diapers should be enough and may save your hands. I prefer backpack and a baby carrier which keeps my hands free
