Use earplugs: If the earplugs which are designed to prevent ear pain during air travels is not something your little one likes to wear. Opt for an earphone or headphones and plug-in his favourite music and witness the ear pain going away.


Get him a lollipop: If making him wear a cap or a scarf to keep his ears covered is becoming a problem, you can opt for an easy and effective way by offering him a lollipop or a candy and make sure they keep it in their mouth rather than chewing it.
