I will be taking a 2 hrflight adn then have an hour layover than another 3 hr flight. my son is 10 mothes old and my nap a little, but im worried that he will be a tiny tyrant on the plane. he will want to get down and move and get bored easily. what are some tips and tricks to make this day easier. i also need some food suggestions that arent fast food. baby food is messy and i want to be clean when we arrive.Answer Question
I traveled with a 10 month old on about the same length of trip and it actually wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be, and she is normally very rambunctious. I took lots of snacks with me- cheerios, bananas, crackers, baby food "pouches" that aren't nearly as messy, sandwhices....
I also bought a few cheap new toys and waited to give them to her until we were on the plane and she was clearly bored- they were things she'd never seen before so she was quite entertained!
A layover will help because he will be able to run around a bit.
I also breastfed so I just nursed her during takeoff/landing to ease with the ear changes- if your child nurses or takes a paci, it will help- just as we chew gum.
Try to sit by the window for extra entertainment.
Best of luck! It won't be all that bad!
