    Make sure if they have a special toy or blanket that you take it with you, but also consider taking along a few new things they haven't seen before - the excitement of a new toy to play with can often be a great distraction. Make sure you have enough food/milk for them and consider giving them a feed during take off and landing as this can help if their ears are hurting. Consider trying to book your flights so you will be flying when it would normally be nap time as then they might be more likely to sleep. Lastly don't be afraid to ask the cabin crew for help. When we flew with our son (although he was 3 at the time) the staff were great at distracting him and making sure everything was easy for us.

    The most important things parents should have are oodles of patience and attention. As long as baby is comfortable, well-fed and not sick, he/she will look for ways to entertain and amuse himself/herself. When parents are distracted or irritated, it is natural for babies to cry to gain attention. Give your baby your full attention and there won't be any trouble. Having a new/old toy and/or comfort blanket helps.

    In their on board luggage pack it full of new and old treats and favourites. Make sure you pack based on age

    paper/colouring book
    favourite toy
    new puzzles
    computer handheld game
    ipod/iphone/ipad full of child appropriate apps, music, videos - earphones
    snacks - check with airline for security issues

    Make sure you have something different for each 15-30min intervale as they get bored.
