We are going on an overseas trip in a month.
I am trying to think of ways to occupy my two kids (DS 4 1/2 & DD 18months) on the plane.
Our first leg is 17(!) hours. We leave early evening so i am hoping (and praying ) that they will sleep for a good part of this leg.
I think the 4 1/2 y.o. will be ok as he'll watch a dvd or play with some toys, but not sure what to do to occupy DD at 18months.
I've bought some sticker books and activity books, some lego & some new thomas trains but couldn't think of much else.
Anyone have any ideas ?????
Also, i've booked the bassinet for her but am not sure whether it's better to have this or try and reserve a whole row (looks like plenty of seats avail so far) so she can lay down properly with on of us beside her ??? I've heard the bassinets are quite shallow and i'm worried she might get up and fall out. I've laso been told that everytime the seat belt sign comes on, you have to take them out.
Appreciate any tips or ideas.
