Sedating children for travel Erotic cam without subscription

On Sunday the Sun Herald reported some parents are giving their children drugs such as the antihistamine Phenergan to sedate them during long journeys to make the trip more comfortable.

A survey of 3700 parents, including 600 in NSW, commissioned by insurer GIO found close to one in five NSW parents admitted to the practice.

Husband and I dosed Baby C with Benadryl during a flight last week.

In my last post, I wrote about what we got right on our trip.

But many mothers, like me, believe it’s common sense.

The rights and wrongs of sedating babies on long-haul flights is a controversial war that is being waged on internet parenting forums, fuelled by the huge rise in families seeking long-haul destinations over Easter in the desperate search for sun.

Now it’s time to come clean and tell you what we may have gotten wrong.

Before you jump to judgment, let me explain the situation.

It’s not unusual for parents to consider avoiding such potential problems by using medication to make their baby sleep.

Medication is a tempting way to keep your baby quiet for a few hours during a trip, but I don’t recommend it.

I recently flew halfway across the world with an infant (a 20-hour travel day), and even though I'm a a pediatrician I briefly considered the idea that sedation might be a good thing.
