I am interested in finding out as much as I can from your experience with a baby/toddler going to the US. My daughter and I will be traveling to the US when she is around 18 months old. I'm a little worried how she will be on the plane. She will have her own seat and the fan in our bedroom is an industrial size fan scaled down to house use. So it make quite noisy and sounds very similar to an airplane. The fan has been used throughout pregnancy and we continue to use it every night now. In one way I guess that is good.
Anyways, I was wondering what you did for your child. Were you allowed to brings toys for your child? Are there some toys I shouldn't bring? How did you keep them entertained the whole flight? I am hoping an evening flight will be helpful and that she will sleep on the plane during that time. The other thing I am worried about is getting through security to get my bags then make it to check-in and then head over to the other terminal to catch our connecting flight to our final destination.
I'm trying not to worry about this too much and i keep telling myself and my husband that we will be fine. lol So I am keeping my worrying to myself as we will be spending 2 weeks there without my husband then he is coming over and we will be flying back with him.
Any advise will be greatly appreciated. My daughter will be having a window seat so I am hoping that will be exciting for her to look out.
