It’s the 13-18 month age range that’s the most difficult to fly with.
You often read tales of the terrible twos and threes and while I agree with this (at times) when it comes to travel, at least those little rascals are a bit more predictable and easier to reason with.
Our 14 month old, although a total sweetheart by day, turns into the tasmanian devil in confined spaces. Whether it’s a long road trip, or a flight, he just won’t sit still. No amount of parental entertainment will suffice. We try everything – new books, dollar store trinkets, snacks, phones, apps…anything to keep him occupied.
Our three year old, on the other hand, sits relatively quietly, playing games, watching toddler apps etc.
