I think that in order for your child to feel well during the flight, you need to meet all his needs. He should be full, he should not be scared, bored or uncomfortable. Think in advance of a list of things that you will take on board.Clothing should be light, comfortable, without rubbing stitches. Shoes should be easily removed and dressed. The airplane can be hot or cool - think about this moment in clothes. Take a replacement set of clothes for the child and a T-shirt for yourself.
Many airlines offer a children's menu on their flights - it should be ordered when buying tickets. But we recommend you still bring fruits, candies and cookies.
I also have some information for you. Despite that all the airline's assurances that the air in the cabin is updated about 15 times per hour, it can detect: combustion products of fuel, including carbon monoxide; ozone, causing irritation of the respiratory tract and exacerbating asthmatic manifestations; and even pesticides that are used to kill insects especially if the aircraft flies to southern countries. And, of course, viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms circulating inside an insulated cabin. From the latter it is possible and necessary to take preventive measures: from simple oxolin ointment to the nose to import preparations of a wide spectrum of action.
Traveling with children by plane is a pleasure ... I'm kidding of course, who have children that will understand me) I love my son very much, he is everything to me in this life, well, of course my parents and my dog.
But the flight to 18 hours will be difficult to overcome with a young child and stay in high spirits))) as I mentioned, I often move around the world in connection with competitions, and drive my son with me, and the flight to Australia was something, my little son capricious and did not allow me to rest and neighbors, I did my best to entertain him about and distract, it is good that he slept most of the flight time.
I see that someone here is really worried about having the long-haul flight with a baby...! Gosh, that is probably really amazingly (if you can say so) difficult... in my point of view, it will be of a great distraction for all passengers, because if your kid is really energetic, so then he will just talk loud, laugh loud...
and this i so annoying, to speak honestly! yeah, as a stranger, as a normal regular passenger who is relly tired and wants to have rest before the long and responsible business meeting - that is just crazy...really not happy to have a kid on the flight.
