Do babies get jet lag? How can I avoid it?

It is actually possible to fly with your baby any time after their birth. But it is important to prevent your child from suffering from a jet lag after a trip so you have to take precautionary measures to avoid this. Before your trip, you may visit a physician and ask for advice on how you can prevent your child from suffering from a jet lag. There are certain things that you should always bear that in mind.
When scheduling a trip, make sure to book your flight early so you can choose your seat. This is for you to be able to choose a seat where you and your baby can rest peacefully and comfortably during your flight. Make sure to ask for a seat on the front part of the aeroplane, instead of seating behind where you can be placed near the engine.
Do not forget to feed your baby before boarding the aeroplane as this can help you prevent him from suffering from ear pain when you are flying. Make sure to feed him before taking off and right after you have landed. You can also give your baby something to suck on so that he can be distracted from the noise of the plane while you are taking off. If you notice that your baby is disturbed or is uneasy after your take off, you can try to walk with him in the aisle for sometime until you feel that he is already at ease.
