What can I take for anxiety while BFing?

I am insanely afraid of flying and I'm going on a trip at the end of the month. I am freaking out. It's two flights, the longest is only 3ish hours, but I think I'm going to lose it if I am THIS anxious even before getting on the plane.

My DD is coming with me so I will be nursing on demand the whole time. Can I take Xanax or Ativan? If not is there anything else I can do? My mom suggested Benedryl but that puts me in a very strange fog and I don't think I could care for my baby if I were so out of it.
