So just being well fed should do it. What's the options for putting him to sleep? (In case there's no open seats)
If no open seats or bassinets, got to figure out a "comfortable" position, for the baby to sleep on you.

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

I use it a couple of times a week, it works miracles

Never needed it. But i wasn't saying it doesn't work. Only that there was no real evidence has been found to prove it.

the only evidence you need is anecdotal evidence from people that have used it, & I'm telling you this thing really works

Anything to know about flying with a 3 month old domestically in terms of keeping them calm?

Make sure they're chewing something, a bottle or pacifier, when you take off, and when the plane descends before landing. It takes the pressure off of their ears.

having a boppy or similar for baby to lie on if you dont have an extra seat is a lifesaver, as it frees up your hands.

Good luck. You will learn fast what your child likes and doesn't.

I flew American on Sunday from ord, and they told us that they have a new rule for bringing strollers as carry ons. Apparently you can only bring strollers that are under 21 lbs, otherwise they need to be checked. Ours was a citi mini and was like a pound too much. We got a supervisor to allow it, but not sure how often they will allow.

Been in force for a while now (enforced sparingly). Just don't bring your stroller to check-in, go by yourself to checkin and leave wife with kid/stroller out of sight
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Query: We have a baby jogger city select equipped for our twins, that weighs 28 lb per the manual, but we deconstruct it (removing the car seats and adapters) when boarding. Never has an issue gate checking it on several flights between YYZ/NYC, but I wonder what the official policy would be.
