G-Tube Feeding and Plane ride.

Hi Everyone, I have a 20 month old son who is G-Tube fed. We will be taking a trip to Ecuador in South America. This is a 9 hour long flight. My question is does anyone have any tips on how to keep a baby comfortable on a plane when a child does not eat or drink much by mouth? His doctors didn’t have much of any suggestions for us. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks,

Liz
