What should I do if my child cries during a flight?

Going on a plane trip with your baby or your toddler can be very challenging so you have to prepare yourself for this. Make sure to get lots of rest before your scheduled flight to make sure that you can endure the travel with your baby or toddler.
For the preparations of your flight, do not forget to pack enough food, toys and other comforting objects in your baby or toddler's nappy bag. Bringing a book with you can also be helpful in making sure that your youngster will not lose his patience while travelling. Sweets can also help you make your child stop crying, so do not forget to bring some when travelling. To prevent your child from crying while travelling, you also have to make sure that you feed him before hand so that he will not suffer from ear pain due to the pressure upon taking off.
If your baby is not feeling well, then it will be a lot better if you cancel the flight until he has completely recovered. If your baby or toddler still keeps on crying, you might as well pick him up and walk along the aisle. You can also take him and let him see through the window to divert his attention.
