On a plane I mean..

My DP has booked flights for us all to go down and visit his family at the opposite end of the country - the quickest way to do this is flying.

Our DS will be 11 weeks old at this point. Any tips on how to make the journey pleasant and what to take?

Hi nailpolish, hope you had a good Christmas and New Year!

We are flying late evening - DS is usually sleeping at the time flight is booked. Can't go earlier because my mum and sister are up visiting that day.

Oh no, no heating and hot water in a Scottish Winter - how horrible for you! Is it back on yet? Did you get Christmas Dinner Ok? Ours was very quiet and relaxing, thankfully.

We flew when our ds was only 3 months, and we found he was perfect, we gave him a bottle as we started to take off, and he was asleep when he landed!!

Hope it goes ok for ya
