General advice that’s proved helpful has been to travel whilst they’re ready for a nap. That works in all situations I’ve found bar one : the train.
Aeroplane – take ear defenders and BF as you take off. Check out if the airport has a play area for kids for toddlers upwards. Take a carrier if you can. Book an aisle seat if you can for the extra room.
Train – still working this one out… but other than lots of toys, books and food, I have no other miracles to make this easier. You can prearranged assistance where someone will help you get your luggage on to a train.
Taxi – sit at the back to keep the little one entertained.
Car Journeys – map out where your going to stop, eat and rest – especially the latter every two hours. Give toys & books, prepare to have music or story CDs on the player for most of the journey.
