Optional Items for Longer Trips with Kids

Go up

For longer trips, we bring a "Me too" clip on chair for my daughter. This makes it easy to feed her when we’re staying in an apartment, and folds up well. On shorter trips, we just hold her on our laps at mealtime. We also bring photos of close friends and family who the kids might miss on their trip.

    Have you written an article on "What to do with Children on Long flights" for example, from Houston to Tokyo, Japan with a three year old?

    I'm soon to travel from London, UK to Perth Australia on my own with my 2 daughters aged 2 & 4. Obviously I'm getting quite nervous & know it's impossible to tell how the journey is going to go but would like to be as prepared & realistic as possible. I've read through your web site for tips but wondered if u have any further advice for this particularly long trip of around 20 hours plus & the fact I will be on my own with 2 very young children. I worry about things like how I'm going to take 1 to the toilet without us all squeezing into the tiny cubical to trying to get us all through the airports & transfers. Any additional tips would be greatly appreciated!
