We are flying with our almost-22 month old next week, two flights in one day totalling about 4 hrs in the air and 3 hrs in airports. He is a terrible traveller in the car - sleeps for the first 40 minutes of any trip and then screams for the rest of the way. He never wants to sleep on our laps or in our bed etc, just wants to be horizontal in his own bed and left alone to sleep. When he gets tired or sick of sitting still he screams and screams and screams. We are absolutely sick with dread over how he's going to behave on the plane!!
Does anyone have any advice on how best to handle this? He still has two sleeps a day at home (one sleep on day car days) so is very dependent on getting his sleep. I have phenergan and am trialling it today but he's so difficult to syringe anything in to that I don't think I can rely on it.
Any suggestions would be very gratefully received!
