Fortunately for most, ear pressure on ascent and descent is not really an issue unless there is some sort of pre-existing infection or congestion. We flew enough with our six month old for her to make status, and she did not have an issue with air pressure until she was a toddler and started getting colds from her classmates.

One of the prior moderators of this forum had some great advise - if the baby is sleeping, do not wake them just to nurse or use a pacifier. More likely than not, the waking will cause them to cry when they would have otherwise slept the rest of the flight.
Agree with above. As I first stated. Talk to your doc before you go.
