Benadryl

I still use it myself on a long international flight, but it worked great on my kids when they were small.

If at first you don't succeed, then sky diving is not for you.

Someone stole my dictionary. Now I am at a loss for words.

If Apple made a car, would it have windows?

Ban shredded cheese. Make America Grate Again .

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.  Deport him and you never have to feed him again.

Uhm, find things for them to do, foods they like to eat, movies they like, etc... Be a parent?

You may want a mod to reword the title.

Benadryl

is likely to also make a child hyperactive.

Are you a doctor? A pharmacist? Can it happen? Yes it can.

Don't try to drug your child. Yeah it sucks when they're unhappy and bored. Yeah it sucks for others, but I know this when I'm on a long flight or trip. As long as you're doing your best to keep the tyke happy, that's all anyone can ask. Many kids just pass out anyhow due to the white noise.

Let me clarify. Children's Benadryl containing diphenhydramine. Hopefully the child is over 3.

Shouldn't you consult with your pediatrician for better educated information?

Yes, should and will. Maybe there are some doctors here who could chime in with their input.

I posted here to get different perspectives. Thanks.

Um yes, I'm the parent. The question was directed regarding OTC or prescription medications not things I already know that keep a child occupied.

Thanks.

Gravol can help a bit. Also a nighttime flight if possible.

Thank you...didn't know that about Gravol.

Yes thanks, just turned three.

VERY unlikely

Agreed.

Yes, we will do that...just wanted to know what other inputs were. The topic was purposely worded provocatively...to get your attention. Hence the "gotcha"...realizing it wasn't meant literally but figuratively.

NLR: Mods, please modify it if you'd like.

*** topic title edited to be less inflamatory. While some drugs may be OTC, they can still have serious effects on a small child; lets leave that advice up to doctors, and concentrate on other ways to distract and calm small kids ****

Op, you may look into herbal remedies which calm, such as lavender on a napkin.

Ok thanks. Inflamatory instead of provocative...got it.

Mod: Please close the topic...wouldn't want to offend anyone's sensibilities. I guess doctors don't contribute to VJ topics.
