Oh yes was planning on taking the reins, thanks for reminding me! Ds loved all the sport on tv do I hope hell enjoy it there too. Will take the ear defenders but even if they are necessary he tends to take them off... Not sure if I'll take the pram or just the sling ... Thanks for all the advice and enjoy them too!
We're taking DD, who is 18mo, to the Paralympic Swimming and the Tennis, Basketball, Football and Goalball. I've been to several venues already as I work for a sponsor so I've scoped it out a bit.
We'll be taking advantage of the buggy parks (although if anyone has taken a large backpack carrier type thing I'd be interested to know) and carrying lots of snacks for DD as well as a cup for her. I'll take some stickers and crayons with us and have a few iPhone apps that she likes. We took her to the football during the Olympics and found she was fine for about 90mins with all that. Oh, and we took the reins so she could poddle around between our three seats but not run off!
Lots of snacks and little toys to bring out. And earplugs. Dd aged 5mo loved it all but 3 and 4 yo were bored after their food and complained it was too noisy. Buggy stores right under the stands at the main stadium, so that would be useful.
We took our 18 month old to the volleyball. We were allowed to take a small bag so had a small amount of changing stuff. We also took her in the sling which was useful. There was a buggy park though I noticed.
My only advice is to check exactly what you can take into the venue you're going to and also to take plenty of snacks to keep your DC busy. My DD went through boxes and boxes of raisins!
