    Mine are 2 and 1, we use the iPad to keep them quiet. I don't think it's a biggy, people are generally just happy if they're quiet. A 3yo can't be expected to follow along and understand.

    Are you able to perhaps have a family member sit with him up the back & provide lots of distractions (lots of good suggestions in PPs)? Even let him sit behind the last pew or beside it (if there is space) so he doesn't feel confined?

    Most people are pretty understanding I have found - a toddler can't be expected to sit quietly like an adult.

    I am guessing that I am very lucky in that my church has a small space designated for children up the back (has 3 pews arranged in a square - other side is open to the aisle. Also a little "crying room" beside it) & has a few boxes of activity sheets & pencils, puzzles, books & some toys.

    Can you take your little one to a service to practice before your sitting in front row? My DD (2) likes the music. Worst day i had was when child behind her had a bottle and i'd forgotten DD
