Im planning a trip home ( only about 1 hr flight) to see my family and wonder if it worth all the stress of taking both dc's ? My MIL has offered to look after my toddler if it makes things easier and I have no problem with that as he knows her well. I think he's a bit young to feel he's missing out if he doesnt come. But i do feel a bit mean only taking the baby ( i'm still BF ) but my trip will be easier with only one child. Has any one any experience of having two on a plane? Like what do i do if ds wants the loo, who holds the baby? etc
just back from Ibiza last week. my 18 month old screamed all the way there and some way back, i think maybe her ears hurt but not sure if it was that or the fact she wanted tp be down on her feet and not on our laps. Not practical on a small plane with one busy aisle. However we went last year when she was 5 months and she was fine. I travelled longhaul many years ago when my oldest ds was 2. That flight was 12 hours and she was the perfect traveller. However weve booked to go back there at christmas and are now dreading the flight with our youngest but she may be just fine. Its a big plane so she can walk about anyway. Who knows, all kids are different. I would suggest some things to keep your toddler amused- books, small toys etc. Its only a short flight so it'll go by very quickly, good luck.
