We especially wanted the water and formula to make two bottles on the short flight – one during takeoff and another during landing, to help with his ears (sometimes he’ll take a pacifier, but sometimes he won’t – he’s particular that way). We had two bottles of water so we could mix his formula. We almost lost them. Make sure you know your rights.
