I'm due to fly 10 hours on my own with DD's who are 3 and 7 months (I know I must actually be crazy.....)

The baby is still regularly breast fed and the toddler is very demanding

If anyone can give me some top tips in order to just make it there in one piece i would be very grateful!!

Thanks smile

There's lots on this online if you have a google I'm sure you'll find loads of tips.

I think what you do is do anything to keep toddler occupied, happy, as much as possible staying in her seat next to you. I'd reckon on giving her a snack or new small toy to unwrap every half hour - sounds a lot but think you might be glad of it! Download masses of CBeebies onto an iPad/your phone. If you haven't got one of these already, buy something like an anker (4 lots of iPhone battery charge in a portable pack) to keep the CBeebies going for 10 hours!)

A friend of mine has travelled extensively with her kid and documented her journeys on a blog called

She has a nice article under 'tips and tricks' for travelling with a 3 year old, which might help with that part of the puzzle!
Safe journey.
