I traveled to Africa when my son was around 22 months. He sat on my lap for take off's and landings, I did have a travel vest type thing for him, I can't remember what its called, but it has loops which you thread your seat belt through.
I didn't take a stroller, I had my son in a back-pack for the hops between flights, it was tough as he was really heavy for me (I traveled alone with him so I had no back-up)
I think you can stow your stroller as you walk in the plane - but check with the airline before you leave. (take a cheap one in case you need to dump it - I actually left my back-pack behind for my return trip, it was easier to just carry my son than to get his fat little @ss on my back) :LOL
I did not even take tylenol with me, my son used his "binkie" and never seemed to have a problem (but he was a lot older)
Good luck and have fun!!! (at least a 6 month old might fit on those changing tables)
I thought leaving at night would do the trick and have my son sleeping for a lot of the trip, but he didn't sleep as well, he slept in little 2 - 4 hour naps..... the total time it took for the trip was like 30 hours, so yours should be a breeze.
