UP, UP AND AWAY!
Planning a family holiday? We’ve all witnessed a screaming child on the plane, usually during take-off or landing. What’s going on is that they’re most likely experiencing ear pain due to the sudden change in air pressure. Usually the air pressure in your inner ear and the air pressure outside are the same. But when you fly, air pressure decreases as you go higher and increases as you go lower; this is more of a problem for children because they have narrower Eustachian tubes and often have cold symptoms like congestion. With some simple precautions, you can
help make flying more comfortable for your children.
