Anyhoooo, saw this, the is morning and thought it looked like a good idea. Wouldn't mind one myself tbh. I don't get to fly anything other than economy so I've never had one of those lovely seats that converts to a bed.

Interesting. Although it says for use 2yrs or older...

....and the first review is not good!!


In theory it sounds and looks like a great idea but I guess after MP's daughter has been our guinea pig I think we will pass.

Now if you can figure a way for us to fly first class

At that age my granddaughter loved Goldfish. She had a plastic Goldfish container and loved to keep opening it...taking out a cracker and closing it again. Walking her up and down the aisles will keep her occupied and help burn off some of her energy...yours too.

Make sure mum has a change of clothes for herself as well as the little one...just in case.

Edit: Dry Cheerios in a Tupperware container are another godsend that keeps my granddaughter occupied and makes her a happy bunny.
This my husband found out the hard way....

Have fun, SM and yes it's very good that there are four of you to play pass the baby, it will be a great trip!

Oh there is a way. Just call up the airline; they might even waive the ticket change fee for an upgrade sometimes, as long as you pay the fare difference....😜
