Q.

When can baby fly?

Hi there,
We live in Cape Town. Our baby is expected round about mid November. My brother is getting married on the 14th of Jan in Jhb. Would it be safe for her to fly?

Thanks

It is best for babies not to fly before the age of 3 months, so it seems that you have planned things well.Your baby will be able to fly down to Cape town for the wedding.

You should just have a bottle ready when you take off and when you land as the sucking on the bottle will help with the pressure in the ears.
