Hi,We are flying on Monday with DD, aged 18 months. Was planning on giving her a bottle on take-off, to make the pressure changes easier on her ears.But I have just managed to wean her off bottles (which will make the holiday so much easier! ) and really don't want to get her back onto them.Will a beaker do anything? Or does she need to be chewing/sucking? What do you do?Thanks
You can buy special plugs for their ears in the Boots inside the airport. They seem to work with my dc's.
I think swallowing is the key. It's all about equalising pressure inside your ear, so dummy drink sweetie.
How about a lollipop - you could keep hold of the stick so she didn't swallow it in one go.But yes even drinking out of a cup helps so I should think a beaker will be fine.
Carvol (sp?) decongestant pods. when flying to Mexico on my honeymoon a very lovely air steward gave me one of those to sniff in a plastic cup and it did the world of good!
Brilliant, thank you all Shall use a combination of all your suggestions! Thanks
