We traveled last winter to the Netherlands via China, then to Africa, back to the Netherlands via Dubai, then to Northern Ireland, then back via the Netherlands back to Australia. All together we were around 80hours in the plane, yes 80 hours !! With 4 kids, from which one has Down syndrome with gut problems (she had 12x diarrhea during one of the flights !!) and one with a Reactive Attachment Disorder. It was not easy. Especially not the waiting times where we had to go from the one gate to the other, dragging suitcases and kids along.
My tips: When possible reduce the amount of flights (better pay a bit more), bring your buggy till the last moment you step in till the first moment you step out. And do not hesitate to use Phenergan in this case.
