  • Well I guess that depends on where you are going

  • Some favorite small toys to keep him occupied either getting there or during down time. A few favorite books for bedtime stories. A blanket or stuffed animal if he sleeps with any.

  • I'd pack some of his favorite snacks, a sippy cup or no-spill cup/water bottle, a few books, his own pillow and blanket, his favorite toy/blanket/lovie (if he has one), a stroller (if he uses it and if you will be doing a lot of walking) and a few extra sets of clothes (in case of accidents).

  • How does he do with strange/new bathrooms? When my dd was that age she would not use the bath room on the plane. So you might want to consider bringing pullups or diapers.

  • i think he'll be fine with the bathroom on the plane. we took the train to the city a couple weeks ago and used that bathroom fine
