hello guys, i've been lurking here sa site for several months now and kakatuwa ang mga information and tips dito sobrang helpful. We got our 475 visa last May (Hubby, me, 1.5 yr old son). My husband will fly to WA in July, then susunod na lang kami ng anak namin kapag settled na sya dun in a few months.

One of my concerns is yung paglipad namin ng anak ko.. Malapit na sya sa "terrible two" stage and tlgang nagiging active na ngayon. parang di ko maimagine pano sya sa plane for about 8hours of flight (although my stop-over, still several hours pa din byahe). parang ang hirap na ientertain sya for that long, e first time flyer pa naman ako pag nagkataon, never pa ko nagout of the country, or nakasakay sa plane kaya i dont know what to expect tlaga..babaw no hehe, sorry! talagang naisip ko lang ipost dito hoping that some of you who's been in the same situation can share your experiences or tips or set the expectations for a kabadong mom like me :)

TIA!

    @kalurker - first of all congrats pala!! nakakatuwa naman ung post mo. hehehe yeah indeed mahirap nga. mas mahirap dinanas namin nung lumipad kame with my daugther to US for 17hrs travel :)

    baka makahelp rin tong tips

    Tips to make her busy
    1. bring tablets, iphone.
    2. palakadlakarin mo panasa plane na.
    3. pasuck mo cya ng feeding bottle habang paakyat ung plane. kasi masakit sa tenga ng bata. pati ung pag palanding na ung plane
    4. may binigay samin toys ung cabin crew, that made her busy for 30 mins :)
    5. alternative pwede mo rin panuorin mo rin cya ng tv sa plane.
    6. sa SIA kasi pwede humingi ng snacks kahit hindi pa serving time, hingi ka ng food for baby kung pwede pakainin mo cya kung mahilig kumain si baby mo.
    7. basta do your best to get her attention :)

    kaya yan :) hehehe

    @kalurker Hi! Naku magandang way lang talaga dyan is libangin mo ng husto. :) Dalin mo na lang yung mga favorite toys nya. Tama si Sir @aolee kung may Ipod at Tablet mas maganda para naman malibang sya sa biyahe. :D

    @kalurker, parang parehas tayo ng sitwasyon, we received our visa last year May and my husband flew to Melbourne few weeks later at sumunod kami September na. First time flier din ako kasama ko yong 11 year old son ko and 1.8 yr old toddler. Direct flight kami tru PAL Manila-Melbourne 8 hours straight. Gaya mo rin kinakabahan pero tama yung sinabi ni aolee gawin mo yun, 1 hour before flight painomin mo na ng paracetamol(tempra or biogesic) para maging groogy at makatulog sya. Masakit talaga sa tenga yung pag akyat at paglanding ng plane. Ang ginawa ko sa baby ko ay nilagay ko yung earphone ng mp3 sa ear nya @ minimal volume para di nya masyadong maramdaman yung pressure at okay naman tapos effective naman yung paracetamol kasi most of the time tulog sya, gigising lang para dumede Bili ka ng bonnet na matatakpan yung ear nya. Bago kayo umalis bisita ka sa pedia nya at magprescribe ng vitamins at bilhin mo na rin mahal ang mga vitamin dito at wala halos liquids puro tablet na kahit 2 years old pa lang. Magdala ka ng vitamin C lalo na ngayon at winter pa dito. Nong dumating kami September pa spring na pero malamig pa rin. goodluck and congrats.

    Hello. 3 times ko na din po na byahe yung anak ko on an international flight (from States to Pinas). Halos 24 hours travel time including layovers. 4 years old na sya ngayon.

    So far OK naman po sya, pero siguro kasi babae kaya medyo behave hehehe! May mga nakasabay din ako na toddlers na lalake pero behave naman sila. Lagi lang sila may nilalaro para di sila maiinip. Bili po kayo ng tablet like iPad po para may malaro sya kung nagalala kayo.

    8 hours lang naman po ang byahe so I am pretty sure magiging OK naman po.
