for first time i know that's really snefsh rack racking for lot parents any travel tips for them? again time is key give yourself enough time at the airport to check your luggage to make sure you get through security. which can take a little extra time of gear. think about you really need everything that your bringing with you? so maybe grandma canned find a pack and play at her house so you don't have to travel with one. maybe the child doesn't eat all of their f couple to bring with them. think about paring down so a little easier to travel give yourself plenty of time to get through the airport. also plan on return trip home because it always seems like you go with certain amount of thing but come back with whole lot more. oh, you come back with more. also, murphy's law says there's going to be delay, right? so your flight will get delayed or something will go wrong maybe sure you're ready in airport to hang out with the kids whether that's having stroll other
out in the airport too. >> and speaking of airport being prepared. there's some tsa airline rules regarding babies traveling. there's some special things that people should know about infants on planes? >> sure. so, tsa rules are special for babies. so breast milk formula, baby juice, baby food is all allowed through tsa check points. so more than the normal three ounces that you're allowed. infant are allowed in larger quantities. however they mac checked special by ts a when you get to check point make sure agent knows you have these items will help you go smoother through security. other rule to know is kids under 2 do not require a ticket as long as they sit on their parents's lap that's great cost saver about. but remember it might be easier and safer to buy your child their own seat think about that when you're flying. anyone whos had be on plane
uncomfortable you can chew gum sometimes what do with baby to soothe their ears on a plane? >> so the best way, most babies do fine on planes. i know my brother like was ready to give out ear plug and drink coupon once one of their l.a. flights, but, remember, that nursing a baby or giving them a bottle of formula is a great way to suit the ears while you're taking off and landing. so if that's possible, that might be a great way to soothe the ears. most babies wonderful thank you so much for tips doctor. have a happy thanksgiving. same to you. happy thanksgiving. feel like its getting all close now, you know. all of sudden it's feels like the holidays. hey charley. something about that christmas and the weather too. i'm with you. >> it just teals. this is fun. this fine december 26th it can 85 degrees again. i'd been fine with that.
