I would speak with your doctor about it before you give ANY medications. They can be potentially dangerous for them. Also, benadryl in children can cause a hyper active affect rather than a sleepy affect.

I would use an essential oil like one blend named Peace and Calming. I quit using over the counter drugs about four months ago.

We had a 24 hour flight with our son when he was 11months old. He slept most of the time,and when he was awake i gave him stickers to play with and he got a colouring book with crayons from the flight attendant. Try to take toys with that wont get lost or annoying..like a small ball,not that it rolls away and you have to get it. Have a safe flight and dont worry too much. Like i said,our son slept most of the time and it went well.

Personally, I wouldn't. There are actually no real benefits.

I found this interesting article while I was trying to look for the research I had read about it. It summarises one parent's experience as well as some of the science and potential side effects.
