I am going to travel across country (5-hour flight) with my baby, who will be almost four months old at the time. My pediatrician told me to nurse her during take-off and landing to prevent earache. I was wondering exactly when to start nursing. Is it when the plane is going down the runway? Or when it's already airborne? I know this might sound completely dumb, but I want to make sure I do it at the right time so she's not in pain.
Also... I welcome any other tips for traveling with an EBF infant... anything on diaper changes in the plane, what to pack, useful gear etc. And I'm assuming it's OK to NIP in planes and airports?
