First off you should request a bassinet if you haven't done one already.

Make sure to bring extra diapers and clothes for the baby, you never know what is going to happen.

Jfk - cdg I got bulkhead seats, do I have to request bassinet separately?
(I didn't book the ticket so I don't know what was requested)

US Air.

When you call about bassinet, ask about baggage.

Keep the child well fed.
+1
& I would also suggest gripe water as a backup, works wonders on a cranky baby

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gripe_water Doesn't seem like any real evidence it works though.

So just being well fed should do it. What's the options for putting him to sleep? (In case there's no open seats)
