Question International travel with an infant? Need a lot of advice.

So I will be meeting my husband in France for New Years. He's going first and I'll be traveling a week later with our DD, who will be just a few days shy of a year old.
I've only taken one plane trip with her and she ended up with an ear infection. This flight will be 7 1/2 hours! I'm thinking of trying to book an overnight flight so she'll sleep. Does this sound like a good idea?
Any advice of helping her get over the jet lag?
Also, once there we will be staying with family. I guess I'll bring the pack-n-play? (although she hates sleeping in it.) There is just so much stuff to pack in my mind... car seat, stroller, pack-n-play, diapers, formula, etc... I'll have tp pay extra on the flight.
Any advice on what to bring and what not to bring? Anyone have experience going overseas with a baby?
Many thanks.
