To make him sleep?
If it's less than 2 hours, it should be a breeze. My hubby and I flew to Washington with our 5 month old for 4 hours, and around the 1 hour mark, he got pretty irritated. lol.
Give him a paci or his sippy cup..or his bottle - whatever he's taking or even some cheerios or something before and after lift off to work those jaws so they his ears don't pop and freak him out. Sometimes, flight time can make little ones nauseous - so a change of clothes for everyone, or for him and the person carrying him - unless he's in his own seat, then probably just lay his blanket down and extra clothes.
As for entertaining him... bring a goody bag for him. A few toys that he loves, maybe an empty cup for him to bang on the armrests... stuff like that. If you have a window seat - let him look out the window... some snacks. :]
