My wife is expecting our first kid in the beginning of November this year.
We were also invited to a family member's wedding, which will occur on December 16th (roughly about one month after the baby is born). I have heard a lot about how babies feel ear pain due to the difference in altitude pressure.
The flight will be a very short one, from Miami to Nassau (Bahamas), but I am wondering which should be safer for our baby:
- 1. Flying on an airline. Jet will fly at higher altitude, but is equipped with cabin pressurizer, and flight should only take about 30 minutes.
- 2. Flying there myself on a single engine. I can try to fly low (3,500 ft). Flight time will be longer.
Please, any insight or tips would greatly help me to resolve this dilemma.
Thanks in advance!
