We're heading to Washington DC on Thursday. Coach has an AMA meeting, and we had a flight voucher that was about to expire, so Sam and I decided to go along. I'm really looking forward to it. There's lots to do in DC, the metro makes it easy to get around, and it's a rare chance to stay at a really nice hotel on somebody else's dime!
I do have a few reservations, however. We haven't flown with Sam before. We opted not to buy him a ticket, so he'll be traveling on our laps. He's never been good at napping away from home, and I'm afraid we're in for exhausting travel days there and back. So I want to hear from you veteran mommies and daddies. What do I need to know about flying with a toddler?
