pcsing with a 16 month old..... its going to be a long flight, need advice!!
At this time next week my family and I will be flying out to Japan where DH will be stationed for the next 4 years. This whole thing has been both exciting and stressful and I'm amazed that I have any sanity left at this point. Anyways we have two children the older one has been on airplane since he was very young and as long as we keep him busy while on the 12+ hour flight. I don't see there being a problem.... The baby on the other hand I'm worried about.
Where talking about a little guy that hates having to be in a car seat or held. He would rather run around then sit still and this would be only the third time he has been on a plane. In the past he was still nursing and I was able to get him to sleep for the short 4 hour flights. Now he's a toddler and won't sit still for anything. I really don't know what to do, they did give him his own seat and I plan to bring his car seat, but I don't know how to keep him happy, quiet and entertained during.
Anyone have advice? DH and family says to just give him benadryl so he will sleep and not be so cranky. But I don't believe in drugging children like that. Is there another option?
