It is not a good idea to fly with a small baby. The eustachian tubes are not well developed and as a consequence he might not be able to equalize the ear pressure, resulting in severe ear pain and middle ear fluid. He is too small to insulate his ears. Consult with your pediatrician if he may use a pediatric nasal spray like neosinephrine and use it about 15 minutes prior to take-off. Do not repeat it if the flight is only going to take 2 hours. Use it the same way on the way back and throw them away. It is not a good medicine for his nose, but may help if used only occasionally. The only sure way to protect the ears would be myringotomies and placement of ventilation tubes, which is a surgical procedure. Anything else constitutes a risk that you should be very aware to understand and decide if you want to take it.
