    Based on what others have told me in (check out http://www.indusladies.com/forums/g...19757-travelling-india-baby-toddler-17-a.html), here are some suggestions:-

    Get a bulk head with bassinet

    Carry a diaper bag with some diapers and wipes.

    Formula if the baby is not breastfeeding. Carry a few bottles with the formula powder already in it so you don't have to take/measure it out in the flight from a container. Check from your airlines how much liquid you are allowed to carry.

    2-3 Changes of clothes for the baby and 1 for yourself (in case the baby has an accident while you are changing the diaper)..:)

    When the plane is taking off or landing, breastfeed the baby (or you can give a pacifier) to avoid earaches etc...

    You can check and see if a baby carrier would work for you...for carrying the baby in the airport...

    Take a stroller (if your baby is used to it ). Ask the airlines ahead of time about their policies regarding gate check etc.

    Rest you can check my thread and get some valuable tips there.

    take care,
    Aarushi
