We just got back from our first family holiday abroad. I’d been looking forward to this holiday for a year but the closer it got, the more I started to worry about spending 10 hours on a plane with a very active (and very vocal) toddler. It was the first time Ollie had ever been on a plane, and I was actually surprised by how quiet and well behaved he was! There were however, a few things we learnt along the way which made the return flight a lot smoother!
So, here are my tips for flying with toddlers:
Prepare them as much as you can
Spending hours on a plane can be boring for anyone. Imagine being a toddler, being confined to a small space and being asked not to make too much noise. Ollie is pretty noisy and energetic at the best of times, so I was really worried how this would go down!
