Flying with a Toddler



Lets talk about flying with a toddler. I was so worried about this from the moment we booked the holiday right up until we got on that plane a year later. Talking to a lot of mums its a big worry for most and some even put off going on holiday because of this. I have put together a few tips that helped me through the flight.

Go prepapred with a bag full of goodies, toys, sweets and drinks. We took along lots of snacks and got him plenty to drink when we got to the airport.
I put together a rucksake of toys and things to do which I reserached on social media for ideas. I made a video of what I packed for the flight which is linked at the bottom of this post. A good idea is to go into Poundland and pick up a few new toys so they should hopefully find this more exciting and interesting when you get them out on the flight. Try and get a toy out each half hour or something depending on flight time instead of all at once.
We used Darrens old tablet and downloaded a few CBeebies programmes on it to help entertain him on the plane which worked really well. One thing I will mention though is he has some toddler headphones but because the sound isnt very high on them he couldnt hear them very well due to the noise of the plane.

To help with the ears we made sure Sonny had his dummy for take off and landing which seemed to have worked really well. Other ideas I would suggest is a drink or bottle or even some sweets to suck on if they are old enough.

After a while Sonny did want to get up and move about so we went to the toilet and changed his nappy. At one point we walked up and down the plane to stretch our legs, only problem with that is he kept wanting to do it after that but I wouldnt let him.

Hopefully they will sleep for a little bit so remmeber to take a blanket or pillow to help with this. We were lucky Sonny slept for an hour there and most of the flight on the way home as it was a night flight.



I hope these help anyone who is worried about a flight with a toddler. If anybody else has any tips or advice please comment below. Always remember no matter what happens its ony a few hours of your life :-)

Sonny's 2nd Birthday





Sonny's 2nd Birthday, how has this moment arrived already??

I dragged the celebrations out for a whole week.

On the Sunday before his birthday we went to Southampton to visit Darren’s sister so that Sonny could see his aunty as she was busy his birthday weekend. We popped along to a lovely farm called Longdown Farm for a few hours. Sonny loved looking and feeding the animals and we had a fun day out with Steph and her friend. We then went home and had cake. They made him a hedgehog cake which he was obsessed with as it was covered in chocolate buttons. We ended the day with a takeaway and then headed home with one tired boy.



The night before his birthday I put all of Sonny’s decorations up in the lounge and led out all of his presents. The banner was amazing and a bargain buy from EBay. I went with a Mr Tumble theme which was easy as just lots of random colours to go along with the theme. Sonny is obsessed with Mr Tumble at the moment so he loved his banner and kept pointing at it the next day.



On his actual birthday (Thursday) Darren was at work all day, so we decided to leave Sonny's presents and open them when he got back from work.

Me and Sonny popped to the new soft play in town. We met up with one of my friends and her little girl. It was small but nice and quiet and Sonny’s had a fun time there. We also had lunch there but Sonny didn’t eat any of his. He napped when we got home then we waiting for Daddy to come home to open his presents.

Sonny got some lovely presents and loved them all. His main present’s from us was a Micro Scooter and a slide for the garden. He was so good on the scooter first time. He is such a clever boy and amazed me all the time.

We ended the day with his second cake the caterpillar from ASDA. He loved it and again it was chocolate his favourite.

We celebrated with family on the Saturday with a family BBQ. The weather was so lovely and we had a lovely time with family eating and drinking. My mum had paid for a special cake to be made with a Mr Tumble theme. It was amazing I was so pleased with it. We all sang Happy Birthday and again ate more chocolate cake.


We had some a great week celebrating.

I also filmed the week which you can view on my YouTube channel, the link is below.
