My wife got to do it with her 2 year-old son. After a 25 hour flight (including the layovers, 20 hours in the air.) She survived, and so did he. She gave him periodic doses of cold medicine to keep him drowsy the whole trip.

Regards, JEff

i was reading statistics on mothers who drug there kids on long haul flights and its over half said yes on a survey, but in a 20hr flight im completely sympathetic when they get over tired people would think your murdering your child with some of the noises. I got some promethazine syrup from the doctors yesterday incase she needs it, gonna get her up early day of flight and wear her out and make sure shes all fed before i consider using it, but i dont want a plane of angry passengers who paid £700 for there tickets to listen to my daughter for 10hrs

Drugging a child for a flight is a bit strange and dodgy. I couldn't care less how much people have paid for their seats.

Children cry and get bored, I think most people understand that.
It is the actions of the parent that worry me more. A few years ago I was on a flight to Tampa and parents put their children next to me, put in earplugs and went to sleep. Luckily I am not a weirdo and amused them, and myself, for the journey.

However I may want to try that drugging trick for my daughter as she kicks up a fuss demanding Duty free items at inappropiate times and making me pay.

She is 20 so it may not be child abuse.

In the US, dodgy means "dishonest", "corrupt", "crooked", "devious"... ad nauseum. Does "dodgy" mean something different elsewhere in the world than it does in the US? The child sleeps and the parent (and everyone else) enjoys the flight. I wish more people would drug their children before take off.

I agree with Ian. If the kid were sick, he'd be taking cold medicine anyway, making him drowsy. I'm an adult and I sometimes take a dose of Nyquil even when I'm not sick, if I know I need to get a good night's sleep. I'm glad for people like JEff's wife and TonyUK, since I'm one of those people who hates sitting next to a fussy child, even on a 2-hour flight, never mind 20 hours!

UK meaning for dodgy is the same. Drugging babies became a bad idea long before my Mam dipped my dummy in the whiskey.
Children being gripey, is nothing compared to adults being total tw*ts.
The last two flights I was on featured adults who needed drugging and/or beating.
Welsh duo noisily kissing/slurping and demanding more booze and Scottish couple 'coughing/farting couple' who had a major row and then made up by making mewing noises.

THAT was disturbing. Give me a screeching kid any day.

Sorry Tony for hijacking your thread and making it an anti-drugging-screaming-kids rant I will probably rue the day I opposed it the next time I encounter the child from hell who screams like a banshee.
