Re: air travel
I just flew from Western Canada out east and back again with my 5 month old. I had absolutely no problems with him experiencing discomfort during takeoff or landing. I bf the first take off, but for the others, he just used his pacifier. I think he was simply so interested in everything going on, and all the people and things to look at, that he didn't notice any discomfort that he might have had.
Also, about the NIP, I think most people on a plane would rather have a nursing mother than a screaming baby!! And, I agree with one of the previous people, if you have a window seat, it's very private!!
