We did it! Gideon and I took our first flight and I'm happy to report almost everything went well. Watch my video and see what I learned about flying with a newborn.
Note: The safest way for babies to travel on an airplane is in a car seat, strapped to the plane seat belt (just as you would in your car). Of course, to do this, you'll have to buy your baby a ticket but some airlines will offer you a discount on that seat.
