Every body responds differently to changes in pressure during takeoff and landing. Are no exceptions and the children. On the contrary, it is more difficult to understand what might bother a small child. After all, babies just cry, not to mention the fact that they have hurt.
During overload due to extreme pressure affects the ears. It can be a simple discomfort in the form of congestion. In some cases, the ears can be felt shooting pain. To avoid this, it is necessary to swallow saliva. If the baby is large enough, then the easiest way would be to give him during take off and landing the sucking candy. And if the child candy sucks and nibbles, then it is better to give to drink the juice. During swallowing, Eustachian tube is opened, and the pressure in the ear becomes close to normal.
If the baby is nursing, you should consult with your doctor. For check it is better to come in advance to take place in the first ranks.

But if it is for it to start to curse, they begin to cry, screaming to the whole plane. This behavior is very unnerving to passengers flying on the same flight. In order that the child behaved well, give him interesting work. For example, download some cartoons on the laptop or an interesting game. Let the children play in it throughout the flight.
