    We use the bottle, so that he swallows.
    But, like Hannah's mom said, anything that will get the jaws moving with some swallowing will help relieve the ear pressure.

    Thanks for the tips everyone. I would love to bf for as long as I can as it so convenient but for other reasons (business travels etc), I will probably weans her in a couple of weeks. Fingers crossed that all with go well on the flight!

    One thing to remember too is that BF is not an all or none thing, you can certainly bf part time, just nights, or just when you are home or just weekends. Lots of toddlers are only BF once or twice a day. My now 2 year old who is mostly weaned didn't BF at all for about 3 days this week, then was sick so we BF at night again for a couple of days, I doubt I have much milk anymore, but it is still conforting to him , he gets a little, and lets me get a bit of sleep at night.

    The last time I took LO on a trip, she was about 14 months and I gave her a lollipop to suck on during take off and landing. Maybe not the best idea when it comes to their teeth but I got that off a book and that seemed to work.
