Benadryl and Long Flights

I hate to ask this but has anybody followed the advice and given their children Benadryl for a long flight? We are going on an international flight with a 2 1/2 year old and a 9 month old Friday so I need advice quickly! If you have, how much? Thanks!

Getting My Toddler to Take Yucky Medicine

I need help! My two year old is supposed to take Fer-in-sol (iron supplement) because her hemoglobin is a little low. I cannot get her to take it. I tried mixing with some grape juice, as the pharmacist suggested, but I got nowhere. I tried it myself and it tastes terrible. So I'm wondering if anyone out there has some good tips for getting their child to take bad-tasting medicine, such as iron or prednisolone, etc. Thanks!
