You're flying alone with your 2 year old for the first you board the plane your child throws a gnarly tantrum...what would YOU do?

This is my biggest fear!

I'm flying cross-country with my two year old next month, by myself, and I'm nervous. She's never flown before, so I have no idea how she's going to behave.

  • What I did..... was nothing! :) There is not much you can do on a plane. Just try not to worry about all the people that are making faces at you! I had a 4 hour flight and my little man screamed for about 3 hours! Yeah it was a lot of fun! Lol! GL hun! :)

  • Been there! There is nothing you can do but stay calm yourself and try not to cause an even bigger scene. Just hold her in your lap and try your best to soothe her. Ignore the stares lol. Eventually she'll calm down. I won't lie though that plane trip was one of the worse 6 hour of my life! Hopefully it goes better for you :)
