I just wondered if anyone had any advice/experience of moving country with a small child? My DS will be just over 15 months when we move and I don't really know of anyway I can prepare him. I tell him but obviously there is only so much he can comprehend.
We moved flat twice but he was really little so it wasn't a problem.
We'll be travelling by plane plus a 4-6 hour drive beforehand
Tell him you're going on a big trip in the car and for a ride in an aeroplane. Show him some pictures in a book every now and then but try not to overexcite him. On the day you leave, smile a lot (they pick up stress in your face which can set them off) and keep an activity bag with new stuff (crayons, small toys etc), and small snacks ready. Buy a couple of kids CD's for the car, (songs or stories). One of our kids was a terrible traveller and the chemist recommended antihistamines to keep for emergencies. Good luck!
