I will be traveling to Hawaii (yeah!) in June. We have bought our wee daughter an airline seat and will be using her car seat on the flight. My question is - how do I ensure she is swallowing/drinking for landing and takeoff to keep her ears equalized, yet I want her to remain in her car seat for landing/takeoff especially for safety reasons. I would love to nurse her on the climb and descent, but it seems to defeat the whole purpose of having her car seat there for safety (not that I was going to keep her bound the entire trip - but we as adults have to stay buckled up for landings and takeoff). She won't take a bottle, but does enjoy gumming her soft sippy cup top - could I have her take some water for the ascent and descent???? She is not thrilled to get breastmilk from the sippy cup, particularly if I am nearby. I am probably obsessing a bit much about this, but how do I balance safety and keeping her feeling relaxed and comfortable.
