I have never flown with dd - I am too scared, but... she hates the carseat and I saw a tip here on MDC that has made our car trips somewhat more pleasant. Buy a magnadoodle (magnetic drawing board). No mess - they can erase and draw over and over and over again. I found a travel size that is very compact. We love it!
I have used Spectrum Spread (Omega-3 blend) as a butter-sub. Even successfully baked with it. Also a good source of Omega-3s.
