comment Advice for flying with a 6 month old infant?
You've read through the children tag? travel.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/children - after that you can ask more specific questions. This one is really too broad.

comment Baltimore to Las Vegas- why does the flight path change from day to day
some more details would help here: where are you seeing the flight path? (It might not always be right.) Maybe some screen shots?

comment What happens if you are caught (accidentally) not declaring something at customs?
@Malvolio mine was also a beagle. They must be naturally fruit oriented or something. It was adorable (and confusing) since my understanding of a drugs dog is a big German Shepherd / Alsatian not this happy little sweetie that wouldn't leave my backpack alone.

comment What happens if you are caught (accidentally) not declaring something at customs?
I mention this because (a) it was Canada and (b) I successfully got a Nexus card afterwards. So it's sort of counterexample except they didn't find it, we produced it after being prompted. (I had utterly forgotten it in the process of Paris hotel to Eurostar to London, errands, to Heathrow hotel, up in the morning, to gate, and 8 hour flight all with 2 kids. I guess the officer could tell that.)

comment What happens if you are caught (accidentally) not declaring something at customs?
Coming home from Europe a guy at the first place you talk to customs people asked sternly "are you SURE you have no food?" (probably because I was traveling with 2 kids) and I was sure but my husband remembered the apple from the previous day and reminded me. I said "we might have a French apple" and he made us look, then took it from us and threw it away. That was the end of that.

I've met a fruit-sniffing dog in YYZ coming home from Bermuda. Very interested in my bag but did not sit. Handler reassured me the dog was only trained on fruit :-)

comment Can I take a two pin travel adapter plug in my hand luggage?
many people do - they can be vital to using the power plugs in the airport, after all.

comment Entering the US with US citizenship pending
agreed. But one of the things they assess when deciding to let you in as a visitor is whether you're a "stay risk" or not. And anyone with pending paperwork that will allow them to move to the US is a stay risk when they visit. So you bring paperwork to reassure them that you really will leave when you say you will.
