flew with DS when he was 7 weeks old. You'll be fine!
assuming you are breastfeeding he will have your immunities and if he does get something your body will start producing antibodies to whatever it is within about 24 hours.
With a baby that young they won't be running around/touching/putting everything in their mouths. He/she will stay in your lap or in their carseat and won't be exposed to much.
The biggest concern would be ears during take off and landing...just make sure you've got something handy for baby to suck on (breast, pacifier, bottle) during those times.
Infants really are some of the easiest travelers....babies & toddlers...not so much =)
