book flights near his bedtime, or in the am. when we went to visit grandpa, the departure was at 7pm, so he passed right out after the plane took off (around 8). if I'm not mistaken, the trip back was early in the morning, so he was tired, and he again napped for most of the flight.
Hi! My first travel with my kids is awesome! Seeing my kids happy are one of the best things for a mom like me. But of course we need to keep them safe all the time while we are on a vacation. Keep your eyes on them all the time. Enjoy and Good luck!
for plane trips I would highly recommend a tablet to play with, snacks that won't make a mess and some chewy sweets - on my DD's first flight she got a terrible pain in her ear from the air pressure changes. The flight attendent was really nice and gave her a plastic cup with paper soaked in hot water to hold next to her ear and it worked a treat!
Never forget diapers at home I REPEAT.. NEVER FORGET DIAPERS AT HOME!! On our first trip i forgot the diapers at home and it was the most uncomfortable experience of my life.
