Travel to USA with 2 pre-school children

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

We haven't decided. But if we went, it would be about the same as you I think.

hey

no problem. i have been travelling with my son since he's 8 mths old to US. now he's coming 6 yrs old this coming dec. just cross your fingers that the flight have your own tv. cause the last trip, the flight only have the single tv for the few rows of seats...he kept complaining the whole flight. but with tv, he got own tv to watch and in flight games to play. but the timing when u reach there will be tiring for him. but keep him in the sunlight as much so he can get use the the day & night. if u have any games like DS also bring along on the flight or when u on the ride to places. remember to bring the right plugs.

daphne :lol:

My daughter seems to have air sickness. We brought her to LA but she threw up every time. Any medication for children? She can't swallow tablets yet.

personal tv ? must book SQ liao; for portable dvd, the battery will run flat in no time

toys, sweets etc must have, and extra change of clothes in the cabin bag

take the stop over flight, break the monotony and have some fun
