Hi my name is Kristin. I am going to be flying to Seattle,WA next month, to see my huband before he goes over to Iraq, with my toddler and my baby. When we fly out my little girl will be 16 months old and my baby boy will be 4 months old. I was wondering if anyone has any advice for me to make this flight easier on us. My daughter is in that stage where she just wants to get down and run around and not sit still so I am a little nervous for this adventure. I have someone coming with me to help with the kids otherwise I wouldn't be able to bring both of them! I already plan on bringing a portable DVD player and Tarzan her favorite movie to try to keep her occupied. But the flight is 3 1/2 hours and I don't know if she will sit still for that long. I am not too worried about traveling with my son because when my daughter was 5 weeks old we flew with her and she slept the whole time. And I anticipate that he will be much easier to deal with than she will be. I am not sure if toddlers are the same way and fall asleep as well. Any advice to make this trip easier would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
