Solutions to help prevent crankiness
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Traveling with a cranky baby can make for a rough trip, but there are things you can do to help keep your little one happy.
The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these suggestions:
- If baby is fussing, make sure the infant has a clean diaper and isn't hungry, isn't too hot or too cold, and isn't simply bored.
- Talk to your pediatrician if your child shows signs of an ear infection.
- Use small earplugs or place cotton balls in baby's ears to ease noise from the plane's engines.
- Offer a pacifier, bottle or breast to allow baby to suck when air pressure in the cabin changes.
