How To Calm Young Children While Traveling On An Airplane

One of our Twitter followers asked if ModernMom had any recommendations for healthy/natural things to give a 2-year-old child for an airplane ride. We thought, who better to help us answer this question than real moms?

So we asked our ModernMom community of readers. Here are some of the suggestions we got:

“Chamomile or lavendar tea”

“Homeopathic pills called Calms Forte – I used them on our 3 kids during flights and it worked great!”

“Gum, Nintendo DS and holding them in a loving way :)”

Rescue Remedy lozenges”

“Catnip tea” (We looked this one up, and good news – it’s not made from catnip! It’s a mild herbal sedative made from the leaves and flowers of the common catnip plant.)

“Ginger root tea, it helps with the kids being sick on the plane.”

“Lavendar spray on a blanket”
