What vacation travel method is best for my 18 month old?
We want to plan a family vacation but this is the first time including the little one. He’s 18 months old and has a hard time sitting through a 30 minute car ride, let alone a 6 hour road trip. So driving is probably out of the question. I was considering a plane but I’m even nervous about that. Has anyone had experience with a toddler on an airplane? I worry about the pressure in his ears during take off, how I’ll be able to keep him calm for a few hours during the flight, and how to keep him in his seat for the that amount of time. Is this too much, too soon? Should I hold off on the long distance trips for a few years? Or maybe try a different travel method?
