Question: We are flying from Oregon, to Denver, Co tomorrow. Our baby is 8 months old and this is her first flight. She is a hardy, healthy 21 lb babe. But I just remembered that whenever I go to Colorado to visit family, the altitude gets to me for the first day. I feel spaced out, dizzy, short of breath.
So how can I expect altitude to affect DD and how can I help her? She is breastfed frequently, btw.
Just her nurse. There is really nothing else you can do. Low landers should take it easy for the first couple days at higher elevations, Denver isn't very high but some like yourself do feel the effects. Children adjust much faster then adults do!

Thanks everybody. We were just fine. I do think I was slightly dehydrated the whole time. But I realized that it was back when my sister used to live in Boulder that I felt the weird spaced out dizzy stuff....higher elevation I believe?
Thanks again :)
