First time I flew with my 2 year old I want prepared. I didn't have enough snacks or entertainment. Ipad/tablet was a relief to use....bit be prepared that he might be jumping all over you. My son disnt like being restrained then. We had an 8 hour flight....sometimes he cried sometimes he was jumping all over us....and sometimes he was walking up and down the aisles....and no you know what? As long as it wasn't during food service I didn't care. We tried our best to keep him out of everyone's way but sometimes we just had to let him have a whinge because not everything always worked. What's my point? Just be prepared with a lot of different activities and snacks so he doesn't get bored.
