Q: In September my husband is going to Alaska and my then 11-month-old daughter and I have the opportunity to go with him. We live in Tampa, Florida, so as you can imagine this will be a very long flight. I've never flown with my baby before and I'm very nervous and excited to do this for the first time. I am wondering if there are any seasoned traveling moms out there who may have some tips/tricks/ideas to make this as painless as possible? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Editor: I haven't flown yet with my son so I don't have any personal tips to pass on. All of my friends who've flown with their infants have told me it was better than they expected. Readers - what's your best tip for Elizabeth?
