When Dinner came around, Bristol got her own applesauce, some extra water, and a few snacks. The flight crew was overly helpful, always checking to see if we needed anything. Bristol was pretty content standing between our seat and the front of the plane playing with her toys.
I would recommend packing lots of toys and snacks. The crew will give you as much water as you want so don’t worry about lugging those around. Bristol doesn’t watch TV, even when its on, she doesn’t seem drawn to it, so I knew that she would need something to entertain her. She did destroyed a few flight magazines after her normal toys became boring.
I was hoping for a few hours of hanging out before falling asleep but having the entire plane lighted up till 10:30pm did not work in her favor. She was fighting her normal 9pm bedtime and was very distracted by all the new faces. Finally around 11:00pm after the lights went out, she quickly fell asleep.
The crew had brought her a bassinet that assembled to the front of the plane. She was zipped in and comfortably sleeping for the next few hours.
