OB is best but either can help. Try getting in the bath or shower and expressing as much as possible. If db is still nursing (however painful it is) it is the best way to clear a blockage. You may need antibiotics but sometimes you can clear it without needing them. GL signed Mom with A LOT of experience of this!!! [ Reply | More ]

Hope it helps. Also if you can position the baby to latch on with their lower lip closest to the sore patch that will help more to drain that spot. [ Reply | More ]

buy a separate seat and bring car seat. give some tylenol 30 minutes before take off. bring change of clothes for db and a new shirt for you (or just throw tank under whatever you're wearing, its the summer). small toys/dvd player to keep dd busy, but hopefully, she'll just fall asleep. also, get on the plane last minute, not at preboarding. if you're traveling with someone else, have them go on early to set things up, but not a biggie if you don't.

ita - great advice! especially the tylenol (you may even be able to use infant motrin - which i found better for pain, and tylenol better for fever) - it doesn't make child tired, but if child's ear starts to hurt during landing you've already taken a step to eleviate the pain [ Reply | More ]

TTA to all this. I might bring a change of pants too the next time I fly. Somehow my 14mo managed to pee through her diaper and all over me during our flight. That's never happened before, but that's the point. Just be prepared for lots of circumstances. Toys/dvds were a must for us. She slept some but the announcements would wake her up. It will be totally fine, but if you are fully prepared it will be a lot easier. Oh, snacks and drinks too. [ Reply | More ]
