Hey, that's a great idea!

Maybe chocolate chip cookies ... and earplugs.
Or maybe chocolate chip cookies, earplugs ... and those little airplane bottles of bourbon, LOL.

One suggestion I've received is that if you're afraid of the dirty looks, bring a couple of packages of chocolate chip cookies and pass them out to the other passengers around you with a smile and en explanation, ie "thank you for your patience, we're traveling with a 3-month old, we hope you'll be understanding if he gets fussy." That way, your neighbors are forewarned, and they know you're doing your best. If they eat your cookies, they can't give you dirty looks!

We just got back from a flight with my grandson Drake who is now 4 months old (AND DOING AWESOME!!!) Anyway, he did excellent on the flight. We made sure that he had his bottle or pacifier for the take off and landings to prevent his ears from hurting and it worked great. He got a little fussy for 3 minutes and then when to sleep for 1/2 an hour and woke up happy. His pedi told us to give him some Tylenol befor the trip and I am not sure if that helped or not, but my daughter gave him some just in case.

As far a traveling with baby formula, you just have to let the TSA person know that you have formula, and as long as you are holding a baby in your arms they are a-okay with that!!! Good luck, traveling with kidos is always a TRIP :-)

Cindy,
Thanks for the reassurance. I guess I still get a little freaked out when Xander cries in public. I have to stop worrying so much about what other people think!

Jana & Christina...

I worked for SWA for many years and travel lots with the kiddies... I never worried about what other people thought when they started to cry... most people are understanding... and the ones that are not... too bad so sad... *evil grin* [:)]

Sounds like you've already received tons of great advise! Good luck to you both!

It's just nearby the big food court with both a takeaway fish and chips joint and a posh fish restuarant. If you stand with your back to the Starbucks there, it's along the right hand passageway, a little way down on the left. It's opposite a kind of bar/diner joint.

We were flying to Boston when we found it, so I'm assuming you'd be in the same vicinity.
