Lil Tip: Fruit Pouches Keep Lil Ears From Popping

Most mamas know that nursing or bottle-feeding a baby during take-off and landing will help keep a lil one's ear's from popping as an airplane changes altitude. For older tots, a lollipop can do the trick. For mom's looking for a healthier option, snap open a pouch of pureed fruit for your preschooler to suck on. Over the past year, squeezable fruit pouches (ranging from single fruit purees and applesauce mixes to creative fruit and veggie combinations) have become the hottest snack on the playground with their cool tops and mess-free appeal. Adding them to your in-flight carry-on luggage may be the ideal solution for maintaining calm on board a plane.
