Young toddler airplane success stories please! [R]1 year, 5 months agoUnicornToots posted submission on beyondthebump.

I have the option of going on a 10 day vacation to visit a friend who lives in a tropical paradise. Flights are uncharacteristically inexpensive, and I want to just take the leap and buy a ticket, BUT I would have to bring my 22 month old daughter, and the flight is ~13 hours each way (including one stopover). My mom has said flying with a very young child was basically the most awful thing she's ever chosen to do, and she thinks it would ruin the trip for me.
I want to hear about the times you had to bring a young toddler on a long flight and it didn't suck!

Honestly, prepare for the worst and you'll be fine. My daughter (currently 2 years 4 months) has been on many flights since she was 4 months old, but never for more than 4 hours per flight, and never more than one flight per day. I'd say she's 70% good on them - some flights she's happy and excited and just wants to take it all in and watch movies and eat snacks the whole time; other times, the last thing she wants is to be in her seat; the worst times are when she is overtired (as she rarely sleeps in cars or planes) and super cranky.
Do not fly during their naptime or bedtime. We used to think "Oh, she'll be so tired so she'll just sleep!" Most babies and toddlers will sleep on a plane (I was one of them), but if you're unlucky like us, there's a chance yours will just be overstimulated and not want to sleep. We've had much, much better luck flying when she'd usually be awake - she's well-rested and in good spirits on those flights compared to the ones where she's too sleepy. But, if your flights are 12+ hours, be sure to bring all of her necessary bedtime things to make it as home-like as possible to increase your odds of sleep.
Bring lots of snacks. Our daughter can be bribed with food to do pretty much anything, so having a variety of snacks and rewarding good behavior is key.
If your daughter has decent comprehension of situations, you can start talking about and practicing "airplane rules". For us, we tell her the airplane rules are: Everyone stays in their seat on their butts, no yelling, no hitting, no crying. And, obviously, if these things are done correctly on the flight, there will be snacks, haha.
Bring small, quiet, new toys. I hit up the dollar store or the Target $1-$3 aisles and get silly little toys like sticker books, cars, mess-free coloring books, etc. My favorites for her (and the things she loves the most) are these Water Wow books.

We just drove from SF to LA with our almost 2 year old, and it was way less awful than I was prepared for. We got several of these (which were the BIGGEST hit) : https://www.amazon.com/Melissa-Doug-Water-Activity-3-Pack/dp/B00CPHX9JK/ref=sr11_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1506016783&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=water+wow+melissa+and+doug&psc=1
We also had several of the Melissa and Doug reusable sticker books and downloaded some sesame street on the tablet to use in a pinch. And lots of snacks.
Hope it's smooth travel for you!

We are going to be flying from Florida to California next month with an 18mo in a carseat. He hasn't been in a car for over 3 hours and he usually gets crazy after hour 2. I'm hoping not to have him glued into a tablet the whole time and I am hoping that there's a nap in there somewhere but he's never been great at sleeping anywhere except his bed. Anyone have any recommendations for toys that will keep him pretty occupied? Thanks!

When i did a trip with my kid at 18mths old (he is the same will not sleep unless in his bed usually) I had multiple items at the ready and would swap once i saw him loosing interest. Things other than the ipad that he loved, books ( he loves when you read to him), water wow books from Melissa and Doug, I got a monthly pill organizer and filled each little spot with a treat like puffs, cherrios, fruit snacks etc and he would work on opening and closing the little doors to find what was inside ( he was more excited to open and close than actually eat it). I also had his fav stuffed animal, a little bear he could work on buckles etc. I travelled early in the morning because he is well behaved in the morning. He slept like crap the night before we returned and only the ipad would work ( i got him little headphones we practiced using so as not to annoy others) he watched the ipad for about 30 mins and i noticed he was drifting and i took him out his seat and held him as he slept all the way back ( i actually had him just sit in the airline seat and sent his carseat as baggage, i know having them in the carseat is safer so please don't judge it was what worked best for him)

We will be flying with our two year old twins next month. Any suggestions on using car seat, CARES harness, or regular airplane seat? It will be a four hour flight. The first flight they will be awake the entire time, but the return flight will be partially during bedtime. They sleep great in their carseats, but I’d rather not lug their car seats through the airport and we don’t need them upon arrival.
However, I’m not sure if they could get comfortable enough to sleep in the harness or in the regular seat. As a last resort, they could sleep in our laps. But, I think they’d have to be in their own seat for landing. Who wants to wake a sleeping baby to do that?!
My other questions is about the seating arrangement. I thought that we would take three seats on one side of the aisle (I would sit with the boys) and my husband would be across the aisle. But, I need to research if you can have two carseats in one row.
Any advice? Thank you!

I just flew with my 2.5 year old twins last week, and their 6 year old sister. It was a 4 hour flight. I got 2 cosco scenera car seats, the old version with a flat bottom- they are small and very lightweight. I strapped luggage dollies (Google folding luggage dolly) to them with Velcro and thus the car seats then had wheels. We wheeled them in the car seats everywhere in the airport- so it was a car seat stroller! And once in the plane, we removed the wheels, strapped them into the seats. I was in a row with the twins and my husband had the 6 year old. Bring snacks, sippy cups, and a few of their small favorite toys but hide them for a week or two first- then it's like new! Crayons, stickers, paper.... My kids fucking loved these: Melissa & Doug On The Go Water Wow Bundle Animals, Alphabet and Numbers Paint https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CPHX9JK/ref=cmswrcpapi_gwvOxbHHXHG7J I also got $5 headphones at target and brought the iPad full of movies. The plane had individual monitors so I used that instead. With a car seat the tray table will not lay flat, so make use of the cups when the flight attendant brings drinks. Use the cups for your kids to eat out of. They did wayyyyy better than I thought they would. Good luck!!
Toys for 1-1.5 year old on a flight? [R]3 years, 5 months agokiln posted submission on beyondthebump.

We will be flying in a couple months when our little lady will be about 1.5 years old. I don't want us to be jerks and bring noisy toys on the plane. What are some good quiet toys to bring for her?
So far, I'm bringing her lovey, a couple books, and her kindle (which will be on silent. I'd love for her to wear the headphones we got her, but she's not good about leaving them on). I was looking at this dress up doll that has zippers, buttons, etc.
Also is it worth it to buy a travel tray for her seat? I saw a couple online that looked like they might be useful for snacks and toys.
