I asked a couple of months ago on ways to amuse ds on the plane while we fly from Sydney to Sunshine Coast. I can't find the thread so asking again. We were going but things changed and now we are going next week.
What do other parents do to amuse their children on planes? Ds is 18 months and constantly on the move.
Any tips or tricks you have used would be great?

Use links or dummy chain attached to toys so easy to grab if he drops them.
Finger food that takes a while - sultanas, peas, corn etc
Wrap afew toys or books.. dont have to be new but maybe something he hasnt played with in a while. The novelty of being wrapped will keep him entertained a little while.
And as a back up... an app on your phone/tablet!

Also make sure you pack yourself a spare pair of clothes for the plane too... just incase !

Ds flew when he was 6 months - with my dad. This is my first time flying with him. Dp isn't coming so I'm worried about how I'll amuse him and not get stressed out lol

We've just done 12 flights on an overseas holiday with our 15 month old. Second the spare clothes for you! We had his favourite book for takeoff to keep him sitting still. During flights we followed him up and down the aisles while he "made friends" with everyone and explored. Not exactly relaxing but it kept him busy! We still use a baby carrier (ergo) which makes boarding/disembarking much much easier as you have your hands free for luggage. Snacks and a few favourite toys and just go with the flow! Good luck!

Oh I forgot- take baby panadol or nurofen just in case.
