The flight I'm on is FULL. My toddler will be on my lap for a 5.5 hour flight, which I'm not concerned about. I'm concerned that she will make a big fuss and that I'll get angry stares from other passengers. I'm so nervous, and I'm even thinking about cancelling my vacation!!
Do you have any words of comfort? I'm so nervous that I can barely eat.

Too late for this but you should always book a seat for your child and use a carseat. They will be more comfortable and less likely to misbehave. When I fly the only little ones that seem to be upset are ones that are on laps the children in car seats usually sleep or play peacefully. You are also putting your child and others at risk. If you run into turbulence your child could be a projectile and be injured and injure someone else. I have witnessed this first hand on an international flight. Mom fell asleep was holding her baby still but the turbulent happened suddenly her baby came right out of her arms hit the top of the ceiling then its head hit the head of three other people. All were treated for head injuries. I would see if you can get a seat for you child get on a waiting list and fly safely with your child.
