Just wanting some advice from those who've travelled to Europe alone with under 2's. My DD will be 18 months when DH travels o/s for work next year for about a month. It's not really an option for us to all travel on the plane together as I also work and would only be able to take two weeks off at best. It would be the trip of a lifetime as we have family on both sides we could visit (and who haven't yet met DD) but I'm in two minds about whether I go at all because DD is and always has been a crappy sleeper, and our trip to qld earlier this year was hell because I really struggled to hold her on my lap and she didn't sleep the entire flight. She was beyond grumpy by the end and to be honest I regretted even going on holiday in the first place and wished we had just stayed home!
Can someone with a bit of experience traveling with toddlers (the non sleeping variety) please give me some advice on how to do a trip like this, or be honest and tell me if it would just be more trouble than it's worth?
And please, no stories from ppl who have lovely angelic babies who sleep lots, it's not relevant to my situation and will probably make me cry :-)
